Design with Cold-Formed Steel, quickly and easily.

SkyCiv Structural 3D allows users to quickly and easily model their cold-formed steel structures, Z, C, Hat shapes from common international libraries and then perform design checks from AISI S100 and AS 4600 to complete the design process. Our design module also includes open step by step reporting as well as an optimizer which helps users test all sections in a particular library, to find the most efficient shape.

Developed by engineers. For engineers. Users of the SkyCiv suite drive the majority of changes and additions to the platform. SkyCiv software developers all come from a structural engineering background, with the majority being previously consulting structural engineers.

skyciv cold formed section properties

Fully Customizable and Integrated Section Properties

Whether its a database shape from one of the various country databases or a custom built shape using a variety of preset shapes. The Section Builder will use a full FEA analysis to obtain the section properties of single material or composite sections. Have a section drawn as a DXF? Directly import that shape into Section Builder to analyze. All shapes used in the Section Builder are directly integratable with the SkyCiv analysis modules.

SkyCiv Integrated Design Software

Integrated Design Module with Exportable and Detailed Design Reports

When your structural model is complete, import it and the analytical results directly into the Member Design module to run full design checks in accordance with a variety of design codes including:

Enforcing the same “ease-of-use” methodology, the Member Design module will walk you through any required inputs and display the results clearly and concisely. To further investigate any member, look at the individual member’s design report containing all of the hand calculations and other pertinent information, then export it as a PDF or HTML document. Use these reports as deliverables in your structural calc packages.
