Free Upload to SketchFab

With every steelwork detailing project drawn, we offer an anonymized upload of the 3d structural steel model to SketchFab. These uploads are extremely useful and are popular with non-cad users to visualize the project's steelwork. This is all provided for FREE! Check out our Sketchfab profile for more models of steel structures.

Universal Format

The SketchFab model is in the same format regardless of the type or size of the structural steelwork being drawn. Models are uploaded on request and are always fully anonymized.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a structural steel drawing?

A structural steel drawing, also known as a steelwork or fabrication drawing, is a technical document that details the design, dimensions, materials, and connections of steel components in a construction project. These drawings are essential for steel fabrication and construction, providing precise instructions for creating and assembling steel structures such as buildings, bridges, and industrial facilities. They serve as a communication tool between architects, engineers, and construction teams, ensuring accuracy and safety in the construction process.

How do you read a structural steel detail drawing?

To read a structural steel detail drawing, start with the title and general information, check the scale, interpret symbols and dimensions, review material specifications, and follow assembly instructions while considering safety and compliance requirements.

Who prepares structural steel shop drawings?

Structural steel shop drawings are typically prepared by specialized professionals known as structural steel detailers or drafters. These experts use architectural and engineering plans to create detailed drawings that guide the fabrication and construction of steel structures.

What are the different types of drawings in steel structures?

In steel structures, various types of drawings serve distinct purposes. Architectural drawings provide the overall design, showing how the structure integrates with the surroundings. Structural drawings detail load-bearing elements, specifying sizes, shapes, and materials. Fabrication drawings instruct the fabricator in manufacturing individual cleats/plates/sections with precise dimensions and welding specifications. Erection drawings offer on-site assembly instructions, ensuring correct placement and alignment of steel members. Additionally, there are shop drawings, which provide further fabrication details, and coordination drawings, which address interferences between various trades. These drawings collectively form a comprehensive set that facilitates the construction process, from design to installation.

What info will the steel detailer need to produce the drawing package?

The detailer will require upto date drawings and calulations from the Structural Engineer and Project Architect aswell as a site survey information if the structure is related to any existing structures.

Detailing software packages can import data from all parties or use BIM to control the project.
