I realize this is not the proper forum for this question, but there are contributors on here who's answers and insights have been very helpful.
I am trying to find a software package that would allow me to model lightweight steel structures; agricultural style barns (up to 60x100) constructed of bar trusses and columns. I can do hand analysis, but for multiple buildings per month, it would be too time consuming. I prefer something more user friendly than finite element analysis, that would produce a quality analysis report. Anybody have any experience with a package they would recommend? I have read some through the Revit summary, but it focuses more on the maximum potential of the program and doesn't describe the minimum level it will perform at; I will never be designing a mutli-story steel stadium or warehouse or office park, etc.
As always, any help is appreciated.
An engineer that I work with suggested to me to look into stair detailing. Sez there is niche that needs to be filled as there are too few great drafters doing that work.
I spoke with a local steel shop here and my contact suggested SSDCP products for steel detailing.
Maybe something there that will fit your bill.
