Our Structural Software draws structural steel members including steel shapes (beams, columns and miscellaneous), beam-connections, stairs, ladders, bracing, hand railing, frames, welding symbols, beam loading designer and much more.
Steel shapes include: AISC, BHP, CISC, DIN, RSA, JIS, IS, Chinese…The module draws both in 2D & 3D and generates a weighted auto-BOM Some modules include auto dimensioning of components to fabrication details. The structural software supports both Metric & English (Imperial) Units.
Mech-Q Structural is an add-on for AutoCAD and IntelliCAD. It is also available within our CAD standalone called AViCAD. The Structural Software / Module is both customizable and easy to learn. Not only does our Structural Module provide design and detail beam connections and steel shapes for AutoCAD, it also includes steel stairs, ladders, and more.
The beauty of Mech-Q Structural is that we’ve taken the work out of creating professional looking structural drawings. We have provided you an easy to understand workflow – it’s all laid out, right in front of you, so that you can stay on track with your project.
By choosing Mech-Q you can be sure that you’re on the right path to becoming the most productive you can be at 2D and 3D structural drafting and design.
We make it easy, not more complicated … and we want you to get your ducting project done fast and accurate with very little effort. We have designed Mech-Q software to draw the way you do, so you can focus more on the work and not complicated software.
You can fully customize Mech-Q Ducting to conform to your office layer standard – so there’s no need to change the way you already work. Mech-Q creates standard AutoCAD objects – so the drawings can be easily shared with anyone, even if they don’t have Mech-Q.
Mech-Q Structural integrates into your existing CAD menu, ribbon, drop-down or toolbar menu. It also runs in AutoCAD®, BricsCAD and IntelliCAD or as a CAD standalone called AViCAD.
Our structural software add-on draws steel beams in both 2D & 3D and includes Auto-BOM with weighted BOM (fully customizable). This structural steel shape routine supports data listing with a pick & match option. Layers are fully customizable. Curved beam option is also available. Annotates beams and steel shapes in AutoCAD and as needed.
Standard Steel Shapes and sizes included:
Please let us know if you have questions about other standard steel shapes for AutoCAD.
Structural Stairs Utility will draw stairs to the configuration set by the user. The routine will also draw Single-flight and multi-flight stairs in Front, Plan and End views and then add the main Dimensions and Stair Data as required. Handrail outline can also be included.
Stringer Detail – With auto-dimensioning for fabrication. Use the program design feature to draw the stairs – then by simply picking the stairs stringer, it will be auto-detailed for you.
Also includes concrete Pan Style stair tread. The user has full control on the stairs design parameters, including stringer and tread sizes, slope, width, stair flights configuration.
Structural Stairs Main features:
NOTE: The stairs configuration is controlled by recognized safety constraints
The Ladder Utility will draw Side Stepping and Step Thru. ladders – Front, Plan and End views. The utility can also draw safety Cages and fabrication Detail. Auto Dimensioning is included.
Drawing structural steel beams is easy with our structural software add-on. Includes several connections types: bolted & moment Plate, angle or double angle cleats. Will draw in plan or front draw views. Customizable layers & connection sizes & design w/ auto-dimensioning to fabrication details. Beam weights calculator and much more included.
Fully Customizable sizes & layers. Supporting welded, welded cleat, bolted cleat or bolted straight bracing. Simple to use, draws bracing in 4 easy steps! Fixing options include Welded, welded cleat, bolted cleat or bolted straight.
