SkyCiv Structural 3D overview

What is SkyCiv Structural 3D?

SkyCiv Structural 3D is a structural analysis software used by civil, structural and mechanical engineers, including architects and academic staff. The software allows users to build structural models and analyze shear, bending, deflection, stress, and more. The platform is completely cloud-based, enabling users to access their work and files via web browser, at any time.

Users are able to create and solve complex 3D structures with analysis on virtually any structure. SkyCiv Structural 3D's analysis features include deflection, (with X, Y, Z sum translations and X, Y, Z rotations), bending moment diagrams (BMD), shear force diagrams (SFD), axial forces, torsion, stress analysis, and full buckling.

SkyCiv Structural 3D enables engineers to visualize their structures with a powerful 3D renderer, as well as view the way the structure will look and deflect using color contours. Users can inspect the structure’s geometry, and rotate around the 3D model from each angle for a complete structural analysis.

SkyCiv allows users to save and load various sections from a library of American, European, Australian, and UK standard sections, as well as select a variety of beam sections, such as rectangular/square, hollow rectangular/square, hollow circular, circular, channel sections, I-section, L-section, T-section, and triangular. Users can also add a custom section, and preset materials can be selected from a drop down list for quick entry.

SkyCiv Structural 3D allows users to view and export their structural analysis text files in order to focus on specific results, with custom screenshots. The solution's unique "single member" function allows users to switch on specific critical members for a cleaner diagram view. Users can also download screenshots for reports and personal records. The platform allows users to store all files onto their SkyCiv account, which can be organized using the intelligent file manager.

Excellent software for innovation

Review Source: Capterra

Our business is on special designs for innovated processes that involved equipments and systems with structures that works in specific environments, so SkyCiv Structural 3D help us on the design with iteration process. We started of using SkyCiv Structural 3D when we developed a 6 m of diameter door for vacuum application with a huge hinge using just SkyCiv Structural 3D, it was the only option for designing on real time when we are welding and fabricating on shop, supporting the improvement process that changes the design every day.

Pros
The easy way of modelling, ideal for experienced and non experienced designers.

Cons
The mesh size when uses plates, I mean the most of the cases is just fine, but sometimes we design with our own plate design, so mesh and number of nodes are critical.

SkyCiv was there when I needed them a few years ago and getting this business going. They are there every time I need help. Very nice to have this software for our business.

Pros
I like that you are continually improving and upgrading the software and developing new features all the time. I am an old school engineer doing a lot of analysis via spreadsheets and long hand formulas. When we started designing various solar carports and other structures I needed to quickly evaluate spans, member sizes etc and this program really helped a lot! The cost is also very reasonable while about every other engineering product is expensive and some very complicated.

Cons
I am probably ignorant but I would love to easily change the display fonts for the output and be able to shift the info to eliminate blank page spaces. Analysis output typically takes a lot of pages and I hate having too many with info most will never use.

I have used both enercalcs and SkyCiv, which have similar capabilities. I prefer Enercalc because it is much more intuitive and easier to set up the simple calcs you want to do.

Pros
It was useful for analyzing a built-up steel section and had good visualization capabilities. Everything is saved in their cloud, which is a nice feature to have.

Cons
The types of structural analysis that are offered are limited. There may be more functions in the future, but for now it is useful only for a small number of projects.

The platform is very agile, even though it is in the cloud. As a senior engineer I really like all the applications to the point that I am thinking of not using Etabs.

Pros
Quick subscription, agile environment, access from anywhere.

Cons
Tutorials in Spanish, I use it in Ecuador. Codes of other regions, in this case Ecuador.

Linear and Non linear analysis easily carried out through this software. it gives speed result of them and easily access their files and program from web browser anytime.

Pros
Structural analysis software on the cloud. yes, easy to use . it is considering the less time for Structure analysis.

Cons
No, powerful analysis and design the structure through this software. It subjected to easily modelling functionality. it provides good and easy process for understanding and then analyzing.
