Dear All,

I have a problem, which I guess everyone has faced at one point or the other.
I am finding that detailing beams and generating Layout and LS, is becoming too cumbersome, and is eating into my time as well as my draftsmen time. We are currently doing it manually and using autocad.
I did a search to find out about detailing software, which can detail the columns, slabs, beams etc. and also happens to be within my meagre budget.
I came across a software named "Arc Bds", which seems to be doing only beam detailing and not anything else. Tried contacting the people, but they are giving vague answers and are not quoting the price. Also their website is not of much help.

I want to know:

  1. What are the detailing packages available, currently, that will help me in the above?
  2. What are the prices?
  3. How does "Arc Bds" work? What is it's price?
  4. Also heard of RCDC, can anyone tell me how good it is and wheather it is useful for detailing(i heard it gives only schedules)?
Thank you all in advance.

Dear JK,

Thank you for your reply. I checked the link provided. The software is a part of "AutoCad Revit Str.Suite" and it costs in excess of 2lakhs.


I think it will be very good, but I am unable to afford that.
I heard from another forum member that RCDC and ARC BDS are lesser priced. Especially the ARC BDS seems to cost around rs.30000/-, and also seems to be compatible in taking layout and reinforcements from Staad.

Can you please help?

Hi,

This is Sajit from S-cube Technologies, the creators of RCDC. This will be the solution that should help you design and cerate detailed working drawings form files analysed in STAAD or E-tabs.

I would like to direct you to the web site www.s-cube.in to get information about the product.
