Reliable software for structural designs.

Overall experience while using this software were better than using our traditional method in designing a structure it reduces our work load and can easily edit the parts that have been misplace.

Pros

I like using this software especially when I have to design a certain building. And as well as making computation of loads that I will have to apply. It's easy to use and convenient in presenting for meetings of what building or structure that you and your team were planning to build.

Cons

Maybe the least thing of this software was you have to be knowledgeable first in using this 3D software. If your not familiar or it is your first time using it, you'll encounter a lot of trial and error. and supervision is advice when using it as well.

Tekla (Detailing for Engineering Construction)

Overall, it has been a great help with the job done and it is a great detailing tool with a lot of features that will surely be a great deal with the construction industry.

Pros

The best attribute of this software is that when doing a detailing of Precast or Concrete or Steel, the software itself has templates that will ease your job. For example, Austral Conct. and others have their own specifications rather than doing it one by one.

Cons

The least attribute would be it has to be learned every part of the software as it has many functions and specifications. In about 2-3months of continuous application before you can really say that you are familiar with the software.

Best collaboration tool for construction experts

A lot of benefits using this tool as it reduces the gaps between the team members and streamline the communication. It also helps reducing the conflicts.

Pros

This is a tool which is used by the construction industry to collaborate and to merge 3D models, share information, and check for clashes. This is a powerful tool and yet very easy for the new users to learn the software and perform productive work. The best part of this tool is that one can use it on the mobile phones, tablets or smart devices which have the touch screen capability and the benefit of it that it can be used at the construction site to collaborate on the live project. Few of the features of this tool is like clash detection, rebar measurements, 3D navigation, create and share notes, save model views etc.

Cons

Nothing much as this tool has been a powerful tool for the construction experts including the project managers to collaborate with the stakeholders of the projects.
