We are currently working hard to have End Plates available by the end of September (yay!).
Targeting End Plates at end of summer and Single Angle bracing this fall.
"LAST MONTH, I wrote about how early connected models can help steel fabricators. This month, let’s expand the discussion to include the myriad ways that early connected models help the steel industry as a whole.
At Qnect, we call early connected model delivery projects “ISD” for integrated steel delivery. There are many advantages to integrating the connection engineering, detailing, and optimization of the model before the bidding process begins (which I’ll explore in a second). Using these benefits makes steel less expensive and faster than other building materials—and also more sustainable."
Learn the 5 Ways Integrated Steel Delivery (ISD) is Beneficial to Fabricators in this month's issue of Modern Steel Construction. Check out Early Integration written by Qnect CEO Jef Sharp.
"[with ISD] the 3D model is fully connected early, with the connections engineered, detailed, and optimized often before the fabricator is awarded the job." - Jef Sharp, CEO of Qnect, LLC.
Overall working on CISC with engineering using metric (imperial sizes). To be safe this will be 2 more weeks (may be earlier). We are in QA with AISC-15 which we are targeting end of September. Also working on Single Angle bracing and End plate connections. They still need a bunch of time. In the meantime we are working on customer requests.
AMHERST, Mass. — "As North America’s first Tekla Structures user we at Dowco had developed a myriad of tools, technologies and best practices around Tekla/Trimble software, but none offering the advantages that Qnect can,” says Ewen Dobbie, Dowco Consultants CEO.
This year, the development team has done a lot of work into preparing to launch the Canadian building code CSA-S16-14. This will go live in June 2021.
