Within 3D+™ a single building model is created from an extensive
library of structural data for all forms of construction and material Integration

sections, details and 3D views etc. can be created automatically. Structural analysis and design data is managed
simultaneously within the 3D+™ objects. A separate
analytical frame linked to the physical structure enables
