3D Steel Detailing Services

We are a structural steel detailing business with a long history of providing a quality detailing service for our customers serving the steel fabrication and construction industries. We are in Washington State near the Mt. Saint Helens National Monument and have been incorporated since 2000. Our experience includes commercial and industrial buildings and building retrofits, Corps of Engineers projects, including dams, bridges, & fish ladders, water treatment facilities, and a variety of miscellaneous steel projects.

We use Design Data's SDS2 detailing software to provide the highest level of intelligence and automation available in 3D modeling, drawing production, and files for your CNC equipment. We use BlueBeam, Adobe Creative Cloud, & Microsoft Office 365 for project management and content creation. Our steel software products ShapeBookWith2D3DSteel and SFT Feet and Inch Engineering Tools are used every day in our office for help estimating jobs in BlueBeam and for detailing steel in SDS2. They are great productivity tools and are available for you to take advantage of. We are always looking for the next job to detail so send us a RFQ if you need a good detailer. Here's a list of SFT's projects and customers for reference.

At South Fork we design and build our own custom computers using the best components for stability, reliability, and high speed operation. Our website, network security, and backup systems ensure safe secure operations. We strive to keep our hardware and software technology as close to the leading edge as possible and we adapt to change easily. We conform our drawings and detailing to our customers detailing, style, and fabrication standards as required for each customer and we follow industry standard AISC detailing practices.

We are also expert AutoCAD users and Visual Lisp developers so we are able to customize AutoCAD as required to automate detailing in many innovative ways, like our flagship software ShapeBook with 2D3DSteel which is trusted and widely used throughout North America since it's release in 2000. For more information please continue to our ShapeBook page.

We are experts in the use of the SDS/2 software and our software development skills allow us to utilize the full power of SDS/2. We are able to create parametric programs using the built-in Python programming language in SDS/2 to speed up many repetitive detailing tasks in any SDS/2 project.
