SkyCiv Structural 3D

3D structual analysis software for engineers

4.6/5 (15 reviews)

SkyCiv Structural 3D overview

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.

Great software for solving structural problems

I am using the software to investigate the behavior of a construction given various elements to build it with. It is really easy to learn and you can use the built-in templates or make your own. It also allows the use of plates that can be meshed giving you a glimpse of FEA. The one thing that is outstanding is their service. Extremely helpful and going far beyond what you would expect in this day and age. I actually had one of the developers assist me, even making some drawings for me. I never had that happen with any software support and I can wholeheartedly recommend it.Easy to learn, very flexible, great customer service, ability to specify custom materials

Had a really good experience with SkyCiv. I use the software for simple analysis and did not want to pay thousands of dollars. It helped me make simple checks (mainly deflections and bending stress) without having to hand calculate them. Highly recommend them, they were also very quick to reply to issues/questions as well.

This review concerns only the BEAM module.

I used the Beam Module on a special project and it served my needs quite well. I like the way beam and loading information are entered into the program. Solving is pretty quick and the results look quite good. I will be using the software only occasionally because of the nature of my work.

I found SkyCiv very useful for some of the work I have been undertaking over the last few months. Big advantage was that I didn't have to commit to an expensive licence. Very easy to use and thorough results. Would highly recommend and will continue to use the software in the future.
