Free CMS Viewer

CMS Viewer allows users to view and verify the exact content of structural steel component DSTV- NC files (nc1).

CMS Viewer provides both a 2D/3D graphical representation as well as the standard text format representation of DSTV and nc1 files within the same interface, which facilitates communication and collaboration between structural steel detailers, drafters and fabricators.

CMS Viewer enables graphical scrolling through DSTV files in a browser like interface, allowing users to rapidly view contents of any number of files in the same directory.

With CMS users can check dimensions, view details such as holes, patterns, and cutting angles, and rotate the part to view it from any angle. The DSTV text view is interlinked with the graphical view, thus any element that is highlighted in one view is highlighted in the other.

  • "We have worked with StrucSoft Solutions on several occasions and every time I have been extremely impressed with their willingness to understand and support our project needs and goals. One of our prefabricated metal panel projects could not have been designed or built as efficiently without MWF. We even used the model to help plan how to ship the panels from our warehouse to the jobsite which was very effective."

  • At Swindale Associates Ltd we use Strucsoft's MWF Pro Metal software with Autodesk Revit to produce light gauge steel panels and structures in a BIM environment. MWF is vital to our business, it enables us to be highly productive and efficient, and adds the functionality to Revit we need to achieve the results for our success. The software has enabled us to produce highly complex steel framing solutions, from concept through to designs, drawings and Building Information Models.
