Steel detailing trial software.

    Anyone have a link for a free trial steel detailing package.

    I used to use Strucad and Xsteel but no longer have a license, and not about to buy one either for a one off small family project.

    I could do it in Autocad, but I want the entire material output, plate drawings, column and beam details at the press of a button, so I dont want to detail everything seperately.

    I have Fusion 360 and could detail it in that, but hoping there is a trial of something that could do it quicker.

    Thanks. K.
