SDS/2 Connect

SDS/2 Connect

Smart Connection Integration

SDS/2 Connect now offers connection design functionality within both Autodesk® Revit® and Intergraph Smart™ 3D. SDS/2 Connect offers the highest level of automation and intelligence available in 3D connection design. With unparalleled intelligence, SDS/2 Connect gives you the power to get the job done.

Intergraph Smart™ 3D Autodesk® Revit®

Value Engineering

Make more informed design choices with the ability to visualize connections in the design model. 

Constructable Models

Intelligent connection design automation prevents clashes, rework and field changes. 

Shorten Timelines

Deliver engineer-approved connections with the design model for fewer RFIs and faster turnaround. 

Connections Designed for Constructable Models

When the engineer can visualize connections within the design model, constructability issues and high-cost connections are much more apparent. With this information available to engineers at the same time design choices are made, the result is a more cost efficient structure that fits in the field every time.

Accelerate Review Process With Pre-Approved Connections

Not every project is awarded based on cost. Sometimes the ability to meet accelerated schedules is the difference that tips the scale. SDS/2 Connect helps engineers deliver pre-approved connections via the design model, cutting weeks off project turnaround times by speeding up the review process.


Clash Prevention Prevents Errors Before They Occur

Plenty of tools help detect multi-discipline model clashes, but SDS/2 Connect provides true clash prevention. It is the only connection design tool that helps designers see potential clashes with connections or gusset plates at the time when it is most cost effective to fix them.
