Master the 3D and 2D design of Light Gauge Steel Structures

Import .ifc files and .std files from any software.

STRAP gives structural engineers probably the best interface and features to design cold-formed steel (LGS) sections and structures such as Cabins, Wall Panels, Trusses, etc. Design flexibility makes the Light Gauge/ Cold-Formed steel products ideal for affordable housing projects, residential, commercial, institutional, educational, and industrial structures.

LGSF is promoted by PMAY-Urban

Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana - Urban is an affordable housing initiative by the Government of India to provide housing for all urban citizens

Building Materials & Technology Promotion Council (BMTPC) of India has recognized the use of Light Gauge Steel as a sustainable technology to save a lot of time and optimize costs. It has promoted the use of LGSF through PMAY-Urban.
