Pangolin - Create complex steel structural model definitions

With Pangolin you can create complex steel structural model definitions that include details such as: 
  • Beam haunches
  • Highly configurable cold-formed sections with stiffeners
  • Surface loads with load transfer surfaces distributing them onto beams
  • Load combinations made up of loads in load cases
The created model then can be saved out as a file for later use or sent directly over to Consteel by the connection component for analysis with Consteel’s unique calculations.

Currently supported objects:
  • Geometry: Lines, arcs, polygons
  • Structural members: Beams, plates, supports, rigid bodies, diaphragms, link elements, haunches
  • Sections: More than 7000 predefined from Consteel section bank, or custom defined by section macros, including cold-formed sections with stiffener definition support
  • Custom structural attributes: Release stiffness model, support model, material properties
  • Loads: Nodal, line, uniform and linearly changing surface loads
  • Load configuration: Load combinations, load groups, load cases, load transfer surfaces
  • Organization: Layers and structural groups
  • I.O. : Load from file, load from Consteel, save to file or Consteel
  • Integrated parameters: For unambiguous definitions, avoiding the use of nebulous generic parameters
