- Multiple Openings in Shear Walls and Slab Drops of any Shape
Easily create openings in your shearwalls and insert isolated slab drops & openings of any shape, anywhere in your project floor, handle toilet drops and architectural set downs with ease.
- Auto truncation of Beam Elevation Details
Automatically truncate and arrange your beams into your drawing sheets with ease saving hours of drafting time.
- Column Grouping
Save the earth - Automatically group your columns and reduce repetitive detailing requirements. Together with beam grouping cut down on the number of drawings you produce, save costs, rationalize design and reduce your paper usage.
- Revit Integration
Share models bi-directionally with other leading BIM platforms including Revit, greatly enhancing project coordination and workflow. Synchronise and track model changes in either Revit or ProtaStructure. Take advantage of enhanced filtering commands to share parts of the model you like, co-ordinate a floor at a time or the whole project model, your projects, your choice.
