Design in 3D
Structural Models are created in 3D space with 3D elements such as walls, floor slabs, columns, beams,… and are instantly available in 2D with unrestricted user functions. Model in 3D and create instantly 2D plans.
Reinforce the structure in 2 clicks! Select working elements, designate styles and Software will automatically consolidate, based on the unique algorithm developed by Renga.
Reinforcement is parametric and can be applied to components of differing dimensions. Automatically cut bars at openings. Designers can create an unlimited number of custom reinforcement styles.
Working with Rolled Steel sections
Add steel sections as needed, without depending on unavailable databases
Designers must not be hostage to missing reference data, a lack of element configurations, or be forced to purchase databases. To provide independence from missing specifications, Renga Structure provides a mini-CAD style editor for designing elements from scratch. The editor creates new prototypes of any kind of new element for use by 3D models.
As an alternative to catalogs and reference books, Renga Structure’s element styles offer fast modification, which are transferred easily to other projects and shared with fellow designers.
Navigate project documents
Renga Structure is designed for convenience, with an intuitive structure to navigate the project. Projects are adjusted directly through 3D models or by using the Project Explorer
Project Explorer contains all views arranged logically, automatically extracted from the 3D model. It provides users with access to floors, sections, main faces, drawings and schedules
Fully functional 2D editor for issuing drawings
Arranging layouts with Renga Structure is as basic as placing already-developed views (such as elevations, facades, and sections) at the required scale, along with tables of specifications and bills of materials.
Views and tagged objects placed in drawings as projections are obtained automatically from 3D models. As drawings are associated to the 3D model, any model changes adjust the geometry on the drawings instantly.
Designers can add explanatory elements to drawings manually, such as sections, arcs, hatches, fillings, elevation marks, linear dimensions, and callouts.
Design data imported and exported into multiple formats
To maximize the integration of Renga Structure into already existing data environments in design companies, our program exports data to other systems as .ifc, .dxf or .obj files. . C3D, IGES, STEP, PARASOLID, ACIS. This allows to use all necessary data for the project on all phases of the project
Communication with Analysis Software
For exporting data to software that performs other kinds of calculations and analyses, Renga Structure uses the IFC standard. Materials are sent to the analysis software, along with geometry in the form of objects, such as columns, beams, ceilings, slabs, and walls. This allows designers to open 3D models in analysis software, assign required fixtures of building elements, and apply loads for further calculations.
