ProSteel 3D is CAD software for structural steel and metal work, supporting construction & planning tasks. ProSteel works on both the Microstation & AutoCAD platforms.

Bentley's many years of experience in the field of AutoCAD development & its close contact with users has made ProSteel 3D an internationally recognized application for 3D structural steel & metal work.


ProSteel 3D has more than 300 national and international shape tables with more than 20,000 shapes. End plate, Base plate, Web angle, Shear plate, Splice joint, Haunch, Stiffener, Purlin connections and so forth - any connection is easy to create and to adapt.


Workshop drawings views, erection drawings, parts lists or NC-data can be created in a short amount of time. With interfaces to ERP-Systems, the machine control and workshop preparation can be optimized.


Individual, arbitrarily complex connections - or whole constructions - can be realized by the COM interface easily. Specific customer's requests can be provided quickly.
