STRAKON is a 2D / 3D / BIM / CAD modern software solution for structural design of all kinds of reinforced concrete structures. The main focus is on formwork and reinforcement drawings. STRAKON enables you to create professional 2D drawings and 3D detailed models.
You can create your project in BIM (Building Information Model) in 3D or only in 2D. The designer or project manager can decide within a project which method is required or useful. As changes during the phase of planning and construction are very common, a high degree of modification comfort is very important. Furthermore, cooperation with many project participants via fast electronic data transfer is absolutely essential. STRAKON allows you to communicate digitally with all project partners such as contractors, architects, structural engineers, MEP-planners, construction companies, etc. BIM in particular requires good interfaces in structural design, where formwork and reinforcement plans play a central role. Here IFC, CPIXML or 3D PDF offer a very good standard.
With STRAKON you are excellently positioned in the field of formwork and reinforcement planning for the future. BIM is in increasing demand by both the public and the private sector. It is therefore important that a CAD system can be optimally integrated into BIM process chains in terms of formwork and reinforcement. The decisive factor here is that BIM should offers advantages for your office – in this case STRAKON can support you very well. DICAD is a member of buildingSMART and the structural design group and is actively working on changing planning methods a 3D/BIM processes.
