Cloud connection design

CBFEM – the most advanced technology for the design of Steel Connections goes to the cloud!

Use our new cloud application based on IDEA StatiCa and CBFEM, to calculate hundreds of connections, in seconds, online.
Simply open your web browser, choose the type of connection, define the topology in a few-clicks, edit the properties and get a complete EC/AISC report with simple pass/fail status for all the individual elements and any necessary data.

Beam-to-Beam in 46 sec.

Footing in 50 sec.

Beam/Column in 55 sec.

Subscription model

CBFEM is the biggest developement in structural engineering, and we want to share this exciting new technology with the rest of the world. That’s why we are introducing in Cloud a completely FREE version that allows anyone to design hundreds of Steel connection types in seconds. The only difference with the paid subscriptions is the level of detail of the Report. As you can see below, Cloud is a Pay-As-You-Go service based on specific subscription models. Depending on your needs you can choose the plan that fits you:
