Osdag Beta Launch, June 2017


Osdag is a cross-platform free and open source software for the design (and detailing) of steel structures, following the Indian Standard IS 800:2007. It allows the user to design steel connections, members and systems using an interactive graphical user interface. The interactive GUI provides a 3D visualisation of the designed component and creates images for construction/fabrication drawings. The design is typically optimised following industry best practices.

A beta version of Osdag was released on 21-Jun-2017.
