BIM modelling software dedicated to the manufacture of steel structures.

The bocad Steel software offers a complete solution for the modelling and fabrication of all types of metal structures: plate work, stairs and railings, traditional frameworks, bridges and structures, from small projects to industrial and architectural projects of great magnitude.


A modern user interface offering a logical workflow allowing users to design and model their structural project quickly and accurately. A large library of automatic connections customizable to your standards allowing you to quickly create your models. No limit in terms of number of elements, nor in terms of materials. The overall and assembly plans, the shop and assembly drawings necessary for fabrication always reflect the model and are of high quality. The different interfaces (import/export) in different formats allow interoperability with other software and work within the framework of BIM projects.
