How to supports Construction and Planning Tasks using Steel Detailing and Fabrication Services?

TrueCADD provides quality structural steel detailing and fabrication services to global clients, supporting complex construction and planning projects.

TrueCADD has an invincible reputation in maintaining quality and reliability across the project schedule. It has a team of experienced structural steel detailers who use advanced computer technologies for completing steel structure detailing and fabrication in a speedier and hassle-free manner.

High-end software enables the structural steel engineers, fabricators and detailers to create quality 3D models for improved detailing and visualization.

From initial planning to design and assembly, TrueCADD offers dedicated structural steel detailing jobs to aid the construction and engineering process. The engineers perform dedicated structural steel analysis, which comprises of virtual models, detailed drawings, bills of materials, and cost estimates.

Such services are leverages by architectural firms, engineering and construction companies across USA, UK, Canada, Australia, and Middle East. The models and drawings are created according to the standards and requirements of the clients, which often demand advanced analysis of seismic and dynamic load conditions.

Why Use Structural Steel Detailing Services?

TrueCADD provides a wide range of structural detailing solutions for steel, leveraging advanced and high end structural steel detailing software.

The software can be used to create 3D models and also facilitates automatic creation of details and documents, and standardization of programs. This further aids in improving productivity, and thus, profitability. The detailing solution may include miscellaneous steel such as handrails, stairs, circular stairs, and ladders.

The company is also specialized in providing 2D drawings from 3D models, based on the documentation, including NC data, bill of materials, and PPS data.

A wide spectrum of structural steel detailing jobs provided by TrueCADD includes:

Structural Detailing
  • StruCAD Detailing
  • Staircase Detailing
  • Steel Members Detailing
  • Stair Handrail Detailing
  • Metal Detailing
  • Anchor Bolt Plan Drawings
  • Deck Detailing
  • Bar Joists Designs Drawings
  • Precast Detailing
  • Post-tension Detailing
  • Fence Detailing
  • Roof Truss Joist Drawing
  • Tekla Steel Detailing
The Steel Detailing Workflow at TrueCADD

TrueCADD typically develops a 3D model of steel structure as per the standards. The model may or may not incorporate structural data such as cope criteria, edge distance, material, axial force, bending moments, and shear forces.

If the structural data is provided the clients with specific structural code, the company will derive a connection, comprising of the fasteners and brackets, from the particular design table appropriate for the preferred standard. In case, the structural data is not provided, they will execute full load design, catering to preferred standards for relevant steel member properties. This aids in calculating structural data and then deriving a connection as specified earlier.

Finally, a 2D drawing set is generated, which contains all the information that is crucial for developing the steel structure on site, in an appropriate manner.

TrueCADD has vast expertise in the field of structural steel detailing and fabrication, generating a good value for money invested. Steel detailing and fabrication is an integral part of construction and engineering process, facilitating developing a strong structure on site.

  1. Hello sir,

    I am very much impress with your blog.
    Thanks for posting such a informative article on steel detailing
    keep posting........

  2. Thank you for this helpful post! Fabrications are metal structures built by the cutting, bending, and assembly of metal materials. These structures are usually formed out of structural steel or sheet metal. Structural steel fabrications are used in a lot of different professions including blacksmithing, boiler making, and iron working.
