Besides common features with Estrumad See common characteristics
According to the CTE instruction and the latest revision of the Technical Building Code
Metalpla includes the following modules or features:
- Document Management System. Customize your reports by adding the images you want, as well as your company logo in the headers.
- Download examples / templates from the cloud, to have a project in minutes.
- Possibility of using all processors in the calculation. Calculate a structure is even faster.
- Text description on the members.
- Simplified inputs in members if they are of constant section.
- Drawing stresses and forces with color grading.
- Improved import from DXF files.
- Tables created by users travel with the FIE file, it is not necessary to move files tables.
- Assigning the worst classification section, if the data in tables is more favorable
- Improved editing assumptions and combinations as well as automatic renumbering
- Import DXF improved for calculating mechanical characteristics of sections
- improved bar links calculation semirigid unions.
- Drawing reactions in the graphical output of results.
- Improved own weight calculation variable section bar.
- Automatic saved. Configure how often you want the program to automatically save its structure
- Aid in the calculation of fire exposition
- Improved PDF export with the ability to embed fonts in the document
- American profiles. Calculate structures in other countries.
- New export options in results display (HTML, Word, Powerpoint ...)
- Validation of loads in members.
And from release XE3
- 32- and 64-bit, the latter up to 25% faster than 32-bit.
- Uploading to the cloud and be able to visualize these structures from a mobile device (tablet / smartphone)
- Comprehensive calculation of any steel structure included autosizing.
- Automatic generation of common types: Trusses, Houses, buildings, towers ...
- Import and export DXF
- Baseplates and foundations
- Rail beams
- Dynamic analysis and buckling
- Automatic generation of loads and calculation of purlins
- Calculation to fire
- Calculation to earthquake
- Calculation of non rigid unions in members
- Calculation of mechanical characteristics of profiles from your drawing in DXF
- Engage with Revit 2016 (separate module)
In the case of LT Metalpla, not all options are available, as is a reduced version of it, and very easy to use.

SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE OF METALPLA
Calculation of fire and earthquake
Simple member definition of fire exposition and protection
Simple earthquaque data definition
Internal calculation of cross sections of class 4
Those double T sections that have not been classified directly in the tables , the program analyzes internally and in terms of the efforts which receives classified as shown in the CTE . If it is a class 4 the program calculates the cross section according to the law of tensions that received the combination of hypotheses analyzed in calculations introducing its effective strength characteristics . (Area and modulus ) .
