Sheet Metal

Streamline Sheet Metal Processes

Discover our comprehensive sheet metal solutions designed to optimize your workflow and increase efficiency.

Publish to Stratus

The Stratus workflow begins in your authoring software.  This is typically Revit, CAD or CAMduct.  Duct systems or individual components are then published with Stratus – which both pushes new content into Stratus and syncs current Stratus data back to the content in the authoring software.

Detailing

Harness the power of Stratus to masterfully craft your assemblies in AutoCAD, Revit, or directly within Stratus, then seamlessly manage the surrounding workflows in the cloud. Experience unparalleled automation in item numbering, dimensioning, and document generation, streamlining tasks and enabling meticulous organizational control from BIM to reality workflows.

Packaging

Stratus enables you to easily request work orders through the cloud, allowing you to create fabrication packages   outside of Revit. By narrowing down your selection to project areas, specific systems, material types, and other criteria, you can streamline the process. You can also automate this process to auto package your projects.

Fabrication Management

Stratus adeptly manages the fabrication of sheet metal systems by enabling the generation of MAJ files that directly feed manufacturing tools, ensuring a seamless transition from design to production. With its robust publishing capabilities, it integrates effortlessly with industry-standard tools like CAMduct and ESTmep, enhancing the flow from digital drafting to physical creation. This connectivity not only streamlines production but also ensures precision in the manufacturing process, allowing for more efficient use of materials and resources.

Spooling

You won't have to exchange multiple emails to select and approve spool drawings anymore. With a cloud-based system, you can choose your field joints and see exactly how the fabrication will appear at the job site. Plus, features like auto-tagging and auto-dimensioning help you save time by streamlining digtal workflows.

Status Tracking

Stratus elevates project oversight with its robust status tracking, enabling real-time visibility and control of each phase of construction. This streamlined control mechanism ensures that every team member stays informed and aligned, driving efficient and synchronized project progression.

Cutting & Nesting

Stratus strengthens CAM workflows by creating work package specific MAJ job files that use Fabrication data to guide manufacturing, whether using a plasma table or a coil line to process sheet metal. Furthermore, our Package BOMs enable nesting of linear materials like threaded rod to provide the precise stock amounts needed to complete the work.

Labeling

Stratus automatically generates company, content, and even tool specific labels for your sheet metal parts, hangers, packages and containers with QR codes for tracking and customizable information for installation.

Assembling & Joining

Assembly stations can go completely digital with Stratus.  Shop crews can work directly from model components with ability pull any additional information or dimensions needed on the assembly.  Teams work directly from digital assemblies without the need for PDFs, or shop drawings saving valuable time in your BIM departments.

Shipping & Containers

Packages of duct can be grouped together and, using Stratus labels and scanners, assigned to a shipping container – this can be a cart, a pallet, a truck, etc.

Field Installing & Tracking

A fabrication shop does not work in isolation while production schedules and prioritization need to be closely aligned with the onsite project status.  Stratus Flex extends part, package and container tracking, model access, and QR scanning to the field – all of which work both online and offline.

Analytics Report

To support the Stratus vision of “Data Driven Contracting” it is critical to not just run a digital process, but to create actionable reports and insights to optimize your process in real time. Stratus makes it easy to create custom reports, customizable productivity dashboards, look ahead dashboards and custom reporting and integrations with an open API.

Working in the piping industry can be challenging, but GTP's software has made my job so much easier. It streamlines the entire process and allows me to complete projects more efficiently. I highly recommend it to all piping professionals.
