Steel Structure Design Software

SkyCiv Structural 3D allows users to quickly and easily model their steel structures, and perform design checks from various design codes to complete the design process. Our design module also includes open step-by-step reporting, as well as an optimizer that 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.

What's Possible?

Features that will accelerate your structural steel design
Steel Section Properties SkyCiv Section Builder

3D-Render and Design Steel Connections

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:

  • AISC 360-16 LRFD/ASD
  • Eurocode 3 (EN 1993-1-1:2005)
  • BS 5950-1:2000
  • CSA S16-14
  • IS 800-2007 LSM

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.

SkyCiv Connections

3D-Render and Design Steel Connections, then Export their Detail as CAD File

Just like the Member Design Module, SkyCiv’s Connection Design module is directly integrated with the analysis modules offered in the suite. Using the results found directly from your 3D model’s analysis, SkyCiv Connection Design will enforce the design requirements of a variety of steel connections in accordance with the following design codes:

  • AISC 360-10 LRFD/ASD
  • EN 1993-1-8

View the extensive hand calculations of the design to verify your inputs and abolish the blackbox. Each calculation references the pertaining code item, making it easy to backcheck your results. With the design completed, export the connection as a DWG file, expediting or completely removing the drafting process required. Easily add the connection detail to your project documents.

3rd-Party File Import Support

Get a headstart on your structural steel model using the various supported 3rd-party file types such as:

  • Revit (.RVT)
  • .DWG
  • .DXF
  • .CSV
  • Others in development!

With correctly formatted 3rd-party files, the majority of the modeling of your 3D steel structure can be completed, including material properties and section properties.

SkyCiv Collaboration

Intuitive Collaboration and Support

With the online connectivity of the SkyCiv platform, share project files with your engineering team for constant collaboration throughout the project. Take advantage of the Live Chat feature and share your project with the SkyCiv team directly to get immediate feedback like you haven’t with other structural engineering software.

With Version History, keep track of changes made to the structural model with annotated comments. If errors are made, revert your model to any previously saved version. Monitor issues associated with projects using 3rd party apps like Microsoft Teams and Slack.
