“With so many years of experience in structural engineering, we are excited to bring the benefits of the SolidWorks’ 3D modelling and design environment to our particular field of use with this great product.” commenting on the commercial launch of BuiltWorks said Dr. Vladimir Popov, the CEO of SolidACE, “Users will greatly benefit from the integrated workspace BuiltWorks provides in seamlessly combining various engineering analysis applications and industry standard drawing formats within the SolidWorks modelling environment. We are engineers proudly developing tools for our fellow engineers, based on our in depth knowledge and experience.”

BuiltWorks was developed to meet the Architectural, Engineering, Construction and Plant industries requirements for flexible and versatile tools, while being able to integrate with leading engineering analysis and design software. Customers throughout the structural engineering industry will benefit from the fully integrated workspace that BuiltWorks provides, particularly those who are familiar with the SolidWorks design environment. BuiltWorks provides intelligent modelling tools that facilitate the creation of a 3D parametric model of a steel structure under design. The use of both SolidWorks Weldment and BuiltWorks Structural members, either as Part or/and Assembly, seamlessly integrates solid physical model to leading analysis and design engineering application STAAD.Pro.

BuiltWorks also includes functions for component modelling using international standard libraries of steel shapes as well as connection detailing by setting relations like alignment, joining and cutting structural members at intersections and placing endplates. Drawing generation and calculated bills of quantities are fully available. Full SDNF import/export functionality allows for flexible and efficient workflow with third party Structural and Plant applications.

BuiltWorks 2010 will be ready for shipment immediately. Orders for BuiltWorks 2010 licenses and requests for evaluation are accepted via SolidACE web page (
