To design prefab metal building kits, many of the pre-engineered metal building manufacturers like Butler and Robertson have their own proprietary software. In some cases, this software is made available to the manufacturer's dealers, distributors or contractors. Most of this software is very powerful. Custom designed prefabricated metal buildings are no problem for the pre-eng software. With very little data input, this type of software can design a building and provide the contractor with pricing details and even structural drawings. This software is of course kept well guarded by many of the manufacturers.
For the metal stud panelizing industry there is light gauge steel
framing design software available as well. This software works in conjunction
with AutoCAD. For example, the footprint of a building is in-put into
AutoCAD along with some parameters that are set by the user. The
software provides a detailed panel layout and list, material cut list,
material order list and even a cutting pattern. This information can be
used in your estimating software to produce an accurate quotation.
