H&R Steel Detailing Scores With Stadium Project

H&R Steel Detailing of Kearney, Missouri, played a pivotal role in bringing a new scoreboard to Iowa State's Jack Trice Stadium. The project involved installing the new scoreboard over an existing two-story building while minimizing interruptions to the athletic department. H&R Steel Detailing used SDS/2 to detail connection material on the existing structural analysis model and to create 3D PDFs for team members to use for coordination of the project.

Design Data's Support department hours will be changing, effective January 2; the new hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. CST Monday through Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. The change was prompted by the lack of calls between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. CST.

Announcing SDS/2 Connect Seminars

In 2013, Design Data will be hosting several seminars around the country to educate engineers, detailers and general contractors (GCs) about how they can use the SDS/2 Connect add-in for Autodesk® Revit® to their best advantage. We can't wait to see SDS/2 detailers there, and ask you to invite any engineers or GCs that you may be working with to attend the seminar with you.

Our seminars will focus on explaining various workflows that current SDS/2 and SDS/2 Connect users have found useful. Whether it is an engineer using SDS/2 Connect for connection design or a GC using it to transfer a model to SDS/2 Erector, we'll walk the group through these use cases.

Benefits of Attending the SDS/2 Connect Seminars
All attendees will earn one PDH for attending, which will be mailed separately after the seminar.

Design Data will also be awarding customers $250 in Steelbucks for each engineering company or general contractor they bring along with them to attend the seminar. To earn your Steelbucks, we'll need a card from the engineer or GC — we'll write your company name on the back and you'll receive notification of the Steelbucks you've earned within a week of the seminar.
