SDS/2 Software Solutions for
SDS/2 does more than design and detail simple square buildings. Many of today’s structures are more easily conceived than they are to fabricate. SDS/2 users often take on projects that are highly challenging structures, like the Frank Gehry-designed structures Stata Center at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and The Lou Ruvo Brain Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada. SDS/2 plays a vital role in taking these imaginative structures and turning them into a reality.
Buildings are only one type of structure that are hard to manufacture without the 3D advantages that SDS/2 software solutions offer. Our users have broken SDS/2 Detailing out of its structural mold and built everything from NASA rocket launch pads and sector gates for dams to roller coasters and waterslides. SDS/2 software solutions are only limited by the users’ imagination.
SDS/2 Detailing offers the highest level of automation and intelligence available in 3D steel detailing. With unparalleled connection design intelligence and high-quality drawing production, SDS/2 gives you the power to get the job done.
Because these projects are very difficult to approve on paper,SDS/2 Approval gives owners, architects and engineers the perspective needed to ensure a proper fit in the shop and in the field.
Rock In Rio Zipline Towers
The Rock in Rio Zipline Towers project in Las Vegas, Nevada, includes one Zipline Tower with spiral stairs and rails, along with eight delay towers. Completed by Sarwar Hasan, this project was awarded Grand Prize Commercial in the 2015 SDS/2 Solid Steel Competition.
