Predict project outcomes.

SDS2 Estimodeling includes SDS2's signature AI-driven connection design to give estimators an edge when it comes to identifying constructablity issues. Within the 3D model, it's easy to see where scheduled connections are insufficient and pre-identify RFIs, so you can propose solutions to the engineer and save time once the bid is won.
