Software integration in construction design can save time and improve accuracy with seamless data transfer via the cloud.
Software integration from Hilti and Bentley Systems aims to give structural engineers and designers the ability to transfer designs quicker and more accurately between the two company’s programs.
Hilti North America has streamlined the base plate design workflow for PROFIS Engineering Suite by integrating the cloud-based software with Bentley’s RAM Structural System.
PROFIS Engineering Suite, a user-friendly, cloud-based application helps handle the calculations and analysis of the different elements of a steel-to-concrete connection, including base plate and anchors, with easier iteration and thorough documentation. Now, RAM Structural System and PROFIS Engineering work together to streamline the workflow and help simplify the base plate anchor design process.
Users can leverage the integration of RAM Structural System with the design power of PROFIS Engineering to easily import, design, and export anchor and base plate designs, while ensuring accuracy and maximum productivity. PROFIS Engineering can receive all the information needed to the baseplate and connection design in a few short clicks, helping reduce the need for manual data transfer. This method will save up to one hour per design by optimising your workflow.
“Our customers have requested integrations between their structural analysis software and PROFIS Engineering to increase user productivity while ensuring accuracy of their design,” said David Crawford, director of technical marketing and application solutions at Hilti North America.
“Integrated with RAM Structural System to deliver a seamless experience further enables our customers to simplify the entire anchor design process from start to finish, while delivering considerable time savings for each design.”
“At Bentley, we are always looking for ways to increase our users’ engineering productivity and accuracy,” said Josh Taylor, senior director of structural product management at Bentley Systems. “We are excited to give our RAM Structural System users the additional benefit of a seamless interface with Hilti PROFIS Engineering to improve accuracy and save time for their structural steel-to-concrete connection designs.”
