This has the potential to be game-changing connection design software, there is nothing else like it currently available.
A very good and powerful tool for engineers and connection designers. I would strongly recommend it.
The software give us design capabilities for non-regular steel joints that no other software can provide in the same limited time.
Once you have used the software for a while it becomes quite intuitive and therefore much easier to use. It is very powerful in terms of the complexity of connections that it can cope with.
The software is very powerful and easy to use! It will be even better when more support is provided for international codes!
Powerful, versatile and easy-to-use software.
"Powerful software that enables more rigorous and efficient checking of complex connections, and exploration of alternatives. However this power means that it is imperative the engineer ensures the modelling is appropriate to the problem, to ensure a valid result"
This is an interesting development in connection design software with significant potential, particularly for the design of "non-standard" connections.
Maintaining and developing electricity network in the Czech Republic is full of challenging tasks. With IDEA StatiCa Connection, joint design got much easier and faster for us.
With the software it´s possible to design almost any steel connection. It is easy to use and very powerful.
We design large infrastructure projects and bridges. We have been using IDEA StatiCa for 3 years. The biggest advantage for me is that I can work much faster and more efficiently than before. I like that the program is user friendly and simple. Easy input, easy design, it helps me a lot.
IDEA Connection works easy and fast. There is no other alternative solution on the market that provides both FEM and Component Based Method. IDEA Statica is a solid and good tool for the design of our steel connections.
"IDEA Connect makes it possible to simulate the actual behavior of compounds realistic. This makes it possible to calculate strength and rigidity in a smooth manner even for extremely complex cases where hand calculations are impossible and other software fails."
Incredible program of great potential and easy handling. It is able to solve all types of joints in structures
Friendly software that allowed us to analyze non-standard connections in short time, guaranteeing a precise calculation of the structural details. The support is very professional. Software updates are frequent and take into account user feedback.
IDEA Connection has become necessary for our daily use. The practical use and fast calculations ensure a very effective result.
Our projects are complex (steel) construction projects, also within very specific niche markets, eg electricity pylons. IDEA Connection is able to make sophisticated calculations of such complex compounds, where other programs drop out. With IDEA Connection, we show our deep expertise.
I was very happy to watch presentations for steel and concrete since for both subjects the approaches couldn´t be more innovative. For concrete, I have been reading material on strut-and-tie and tension fields for significant time, but it is the first time that I see a full computational implementation of topological optimization that is not only at investigation level. For steel, all the approaches I had seen before were limited, not only on the number and type of connections but also on the customization of the components (bolt, plates, welds, etc). This software can effectively add a very powerful analysis capacity to a very easy to use user interface. The user essentially draws the problem to be analyzed and the software provides an exhaustive set of outputs that go significantly beyond the Engineering Standard Checks although including them. Congratulations.
