It’s all about Productivity
“If you're not using StrucPLUS® you're just not drafting efficiently” Peter Coburn, Originator of StucPLUS
StrucPLUS users typically report a 10x productivity increase over regular AutoCAD alone – Add that time saving up for every drawing over time and you’ll see why StrucPLUS has been the #1 structural plug-in since the 80’s and to this day. The initial cost being recovered sometimes on the first job!
Five core modules are included in StrucPLUS® Core –
- SPTools™enhance the general workflow of everyday tasks in CAD,
- SPConcrete™ focuses on streamlining everything concrete,
- SPCivil™ provides tools specific to civil works such as drains,
- SPSteel™ is next level steel detailing that has been relied upon for decades requiring consitency and productivity for shop drawings and
- SPDetailer™ provides all the added needs if specialised areas such as stairs, timber frame construction and more…
To StrucPLUS Core software you can add Pre-Cast Panel Detailer™ module for the most rapid production of Precast panels and 3D Tools for integrated 3D models from wire frame and 3D elements such as stairs.
“I used StrucPLUS for years then switched to Revit to be more efficient, but I still use StrucPLUS because I simply get more done in less time.”
Each module is focused on the defined task with some generic general purpose tools also being provided.
Why not try for yourself.
Get good fast
The menus and commands are structured in such a way that AutoCAD or BricsCAD users are productive in less than an hour. Each command is either self explanatory or provides a dialog driven menu that you simply complete. A series of self help videos and a good old fashioned printable manual also show you how to use the commands.
