New Tekla Structural Designer update features Fabsec link

Posted on by in News

A new partnership between Trimble and Fabsec in the UK has resulted in the launch of a bi-directional link between Trimble’s latest Tekla Structural Designer (TSD) 2020 update and Fabsec FBEAM software.

The link means data can flow freely between the two packages, which is said to save design time and thereby ensuring an efficient project solution.

Structural and consulting engineers, as well as steelwork contractors, are able to download the free FBEAM software from the Fabsec website, and design long span cellular beams to the Eurocode.

Commenting on the partnership, Sharon Green, Fabsec Business Development Manager said: “Fabsec started in 2001 and since then FBEAM has established itself as the industry’s leading software solution for the design of plated cellular beams in ambient and fire conditions.

“With a track record of continuous development, to ensure FBEAM remains at the forefront of engineers’ needs, we are pleased to announce our recent partnership with Trimble to develop this import/export regime between FBEAM and Tekla Structural Designer. This latest update allows a seamless transfer of data between the two software packages making the design and specification of FBEAM plate girders even more streamlined.”

Fabsec software is only compatible with the latest Tekla Structural Designer 2020 release and can be downloaded in the UK from the company’s website:
