Engineering News Record (ENR): “…Qnect will be a game-changer”

By admin on Apr 1, 2016 12:52:32 PM

A cloud-based digital engineer is hovering nearby, ready to calculate, design and optimize thousands of bolted and welded connections on 3D Tekla models as a service to subscribers.

QuickQnect is a Tekla plug-in about seven years in development and out in stealth mode since April. The developer says QuickQnect differs from other steel-connection software in that it uses powerful, in-the-cloud computers to examine loads rapidly, designing each connection to be as efficient as possible, rather than applying standard designs by connection type from a library.

To set up the tool, the engineer selects among dozens of preferences for job requirements, connection types, detailing, bolts and welds. Then, the model—or only parts of it—is uploaded to a cloud processor by clicking a button on the Tekla interface. The system extracts the forces and engineers the connections, says Jef Sharp, the developer and CEO of Qnect, Hadley, Mass.

Software is eating the world of steel

By admin on May 7, 2015 2:43:17 PM

As Mark Andreesen of Silicon Valley famously said, “Software is eating the world…” This is evident in all industries and the Steel industry is a prime example. Software is efficient. Design something really well the first time and then deploy it over and over again, while making it continually better. Smarter.

So what is the limit to what software can do for Steel? Qnect addresses not just the software options of today, but the future of software to make the structural steel industry even more safe, economical and efficient.
