3D FEM premium

The package especially for 3D structural and civil engineering

The 3D FEM premium package offers all the functions required to successfully handle even the most demanding projects in structural and civil engineering. In addition to the input options with the AutoCAD® attachment SOFiPLUS or Autodesk® Revit® Structure, the package offers non-linear effects and pile elements for the simulation of soil-structure interaction.

The complete design according to Eurocodes, stability verifications and many international standards (e.g. BS EN 1992, SNIP, AASHTO) round off the verification options. The graphically interactive post-processing is extended by the integration of surface results, interfaces to Excel® and VBA offer full flexibility.
