PTC CADDS 5 Structural Steel and Hull Design Option

Design and Fabricate Steel Structures

Powerful structural design software, CADDS 5 Structural Steel and Hull Design Option enables users to 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 increase steel design productivity, particularly in the shipbuilding, steel buildings and offshore industries.
