What Our Customers Say
At Cobe, we have been using the BuildSoft structural analysis software since the very beginning. Even though its possibilities have strongly evolved over the past 20 years, this software has always remained extremely accessible to both junior and experienced project engineers. BuildSoft Diamonds truly is a software that supports structural engineers in developing creative solutions for a wide range of challenging projects.
We've been using the BuildSoft design analysis software for about 15 years and it has always been a great experience to do that. Because this software is so easy to use, we can solve complex structural design challenges very efficiently. And thanks to the BuildSoft BIM Expert, we can now even go one step further and translate the Diamonds analysis model into a Tekla Structures model. As a result, a smooth collaboration with the building contractor becomes a lot easier.
Because Diamonds allows us to recalculate a structural design in just a matter of minutes, we firmly improve our agility as an engineering team. Also, Diamonds' great ease of use is essential to us in our day-to-day tasks as structural engineers. If a new colleague strengthens our team, it only takes a few days at the most to get up to full speed with Diamonds. I don’t know of any other structural design analysis software that makes this possible.
Diamonds structural analysis software is very intuitive to use, it is straightforward to achieve results quickly and actively use them during our discussions with the architects. That helps us realize structural designs that give a voice to the architects’ visual language. […] It is most helpful to use analysis models that focus on the structural design essentials and quickly translate it into practical solutions. That's precisely why we use the Diamonds software.
We are always looking for the best balance between repeatability and material savings […] Being able to work within an easily readable software environment is very important to help us maximize project productivity. That really helps save a lot of time when defining model geometry, structural properties and loads, but also when processing, interpreting and reporting the analysis results. Now that we have been using the BuildSoft structural analysis software for about 10 years, I believe I am entitled to say that it really shines in this respect.
As a Senior Project Expert at Sweco Belgium, I'm in charge of assessing the feasibility of complex building projects and devising creative structural concepts. […] Once a Diamonds 3D analysis model is available, it is perfectly possible to perform what-if analysis for different scenarios. Personally, I find this to be the great power of 3D analysis software and a major enabler to explore and validate creative structural concepts.
We have been using BuildSoft’s Diamonds software intensively for many years. For our team of 5 structural engineers, it has proven to be an indispensable tool for the structural design of increasingly complex structures as can be found in many modern architectural designs.
