Intelligent FRAMECAD integrated CAD software makes the process of engineering, designing and detailing each project fast, simple and highly accurate.
The FRAMECAD CFS cold formed steel design software suite incorporates design, engineering calculations, structural analysis, detailing, and roll-forming machine control. Providing extreme accuracy and efficiencies in the construction process, reducing engineering, design, waste, and labor costs.
Our cold formed steel CAD software suite provides end-to-end process integration in designing and producing cold formed steel buildings with FRAMECAD manufacturing solutions. With FRAMECAD software, you will improve your design efficiency and minimize project delays wherever you are in the world. In addition, our CFS software allows users to code-check and auto-design for strength and serviceability by regional design codes.
Save time and investment with engineering design software for cold formed steel structures, with the world's most code compliant system for cold formed steel.
FRAMECAD Detailer is a versatile steel CAD software with world-leading detailing flexibility. FRAMECAD Detailer makes it quick and easy to produce designs for automated production.
FRAMECAD Revlink allows you to work seamlessly between Revit and FRAMECAD Detailer, or Revit and FRAMECAD Structure, secure in the knowledge that you always have one complete model available.
The world's only end-to-end cloud-based customer portal for supporting CFS software cold formed steel framing operations. This interactive system provides all the tools and applications you'll need to manage your business better and improve productivity.
Using our CFS software for cold formed steel construction gives accurate design results at a faster rate, as well as providing budget calculations necessary for light steel framing.
The FRAMECAD CFS cold formed steel design software system comprises all elements necessary for planning and building. Load bearing walls, curtain walls, shear walls - each is created through an individual module in the program.
Construction engineers and architects can use these modules alone or together to make the most intricate designs possible. By employing the FRAMECAD CFS software system, you enjoy the benefits of a design-led process. This reduces costs, including engineering and skilled labour, and increases productivity efficiencies returning an overall greater return on investment. Engineers and construction professionals have used our CFS cold formed steel design software for almost 20 years.
The FRAMECAD software suite offers streamlined building information modelling (BIM) integration. Sharing the design and building information is easy, fast and efficient.
Our proprietary plug-in FRAMECAD Revlink allows you to work seamlessly between Revit and FRAMECAD Detailer, or Revit and FRAMECAD Structure, secure in the knowledge that you always have one complete model available.
Using FRAMECAD Revlink you can bring streamlined design and engineering into your BIM model from FRAMECAD Structure.
By developing BIM compatibility functions, FRAMECAD Structure offers an interface to other BIM software such as Archicad, VectorWorks, Solid Works, Solid Edge, TEKLA and many other CAD packages.
Simply share design files between FRAMECAD Structure, Strucsoft and SolidWorks using IFC and ACSI (SAT) file formats.
Using FRAMECAD Revlink allows seamless building design exchange between Revit and FRAMECAD Detailer. This maximizes efficiency ensuring you save time and money in the design, manufacturing and construction processes. FRAMECAD Detailer creates frame and truss design files efficiently for integration to the Revit building model. Changes to the design can be made in either Revit or Detailer. FRAMECAD Revlink ensures either changes are synced between the two design programs.
There are a great many benefits to be found when the decision is made to undertake off-site fabrication of partitioning walls through the use of FRAMECAD technology, rather than traditional on-site timber or stud track construction methods.
A partnership between FRAMECAD and Intellisteel is poised to disrupt the construction industry in the U.S. for years to come. Together, these two innovative companies make construction faster, more efficient and more cost-effective. The FRAMECAD System is a modern method of construction offering a faster way to design and build strong, durable Cold Formed Steel (CFS) frame buildings easily and efficiently, anywhere in the world.
For multi-level buildings, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that timber, concrete, and hot-rolled steel aren’t always the best options – especially when it comes to the top floor. That’s why so many developers are now looking for ways to save on time, labour, and costs during the construction process.
All 422 load-bearing wall panels for levels three through seven of this 7-story (five levels on two levels of podium) project was fabricated at Douglass Colony's headquarters in Commerce City using FRAMECAD and shipped directly to the jobsite where the building was erected in a total of 40 working days, including all wall panels, flooring systems, and detailing with concrete poured and cured.
