The PROKON suite includes a full-featured CAD program, Padds, designed specifically for structural engineers.
New users are usually pleasantly surprised by how intuitive and easy to use it is. Without the bloat of modern
CAD systems, all that remains is a lean and powerful tool for drawing and structural detailing.
The free PaddView drawing viewer compliments Padds even further. PaddView is a simple utility for viewing and printing Padds drawings.
What makes this module unique?
Automatic scheduling: the program automatically reads all the bars in the drawing and sorts them first by member name and then by bar mark.
Work with reinforcement bending schedules created with the PROKON concrete design modules, or create drawings and schedules from scratch.
Generate geometrical input for other PROKON analysis modules, like taking complex slab geometries and generating finite element meshes for Frame Analysis.
