ProtaSteel is the all-in-one steel detailing and steel connection design software solution for engineers, fabricators and drafting professionals to perform automated steel connection design and produce high quality steel detail drawings.
Take models designed in ProtaStructure directly into ProtaSteel and save hours with automated design of a comprehensive range of bolted and welded steel connections of your choice.
Visualize and coordinate your models in 3D, add ancillary steelwork, and fully quantify and value engineer your projects.
Significantly reduce design and detailing time by automatically producing high quality engineering drawings for all steelwork and connection details. Increase your design teams productivity and business project profitability.
Save valuable project management time by coordinating your projects with other leading BIM platforms including Tekla Structures and Revit.
ProtaSteel 2022 is now compatible with 64-bit operating systems. This will bring you significant advantages in terms of the performance and management of big models.
ProtaSteel 2022 introduces additional new connection design with comprehensive check reports to EC3, AISC (LRFD and ASD) and BS5950 with full code clause referencing including; haunch connection, all bracing and truss connections, purlin/girt connections, splice connections and apex haunch connections.
With ProtaSteel, an extensive library of connections is at your disposal for your structural steel projects. ProtaSteel 2022 extends this library further by introducing new connection macros such as Angle Cleat Connection, Bolted End Plate Splice Connection, Base Plate for Hollow Sections, Haunch Connection for Continuous Beams.
In addition to connection macros, ProtaSteel offers a vast range of macros that will boost your productivity during modeling. Notch, Cut, Fit, Adjust, Weld, Bolt, Stiffeners, Batten Plates, Web Openings with Stiffeners, Automated Stair Treads, Chequered Plate, Gratings, Castellated Beams, Wind Column Connections, Beam to Beam Fixed Connections are among the powerful tools.
Save hundreds of hours by automatically producing shop details and producing CNC data for all steelwork fabrication.
Plot directly from ProtaSteel or publish DWG drawing output directly to ProtaDetails or your preferred CAD system including AutoCAD, Microstation and Bricscad. Seamlessly communicate the entire model with other leading BIM systems including Revit and Tekla Structures.
