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."
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.
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.
Now available, Export to PDF. Qnect's customers have been asking for this and we deliver. Just like Qnect, export to PDF is a simple and painless way to turn your detailed Qnect reports into a sharable and for some more manageable format.
In late August, we hosted a webinar focused on the power of analytics presented with Qnect data. The full video is below and then just below that is a transcript with screen shots. We had a great attendance and a solid Q&A session after the main presentation. There is also a 7 minute BONUS video that can be found here where you will learn more about future plans around the content presented in the webinar.
The Qnect development team took on a monumental task when they added Vertical Bracing Connections to the product roadmap. They were confident they could make it work but they knew it would take time and testing.
The hard work paid off. Qnect received a 2020 Hot Product Award for “The world’s most efficient vertical bracing connection.”
After the holiday rest, we had a productive and, I’ll say, exciting time on the product development side of the house. Most of the enhancements are working behind the scenes so you won’t notice too much on the User Interface side but you will notice a few items.
