PTC CADDS 5 Structural Steel and Hull Design Option

Featuring a broad range of capabilities for the detailed design and fabrication of steel structures

With this powerful structural design software, you can model and fabricate complex plates with curved and twisted stiffeners. These product design and development capabilities, coupled with associative relationships that drive automated updates, help you increase steel design productivity, especially in the shipbuilding, steel buildings, and offshore industries.

Features & Benefits

  • Easily create complex structures-- from conceptual design through manufacturing--to reduce total product development time
  • Leverage specialized shipbuilding design and steel fabrication options, including NC outputs and automated drawings, to reduce costs and accelerate production
  • Reduce product design costs and speed your production processes using accurate interference detection, which helps you resolve design conflicts early
  • Create both linear and complex curved and twisted members
  • Import mechanisms for external or legacy hull form definitions
  • Save time by leveraging a library of standard and user-definable end cuts, cut outs, collars and brackets
  • Reduce errors and increase design speed with associative links between structural items, which automatically updates the design when modifications are made
