To use Descon, start by choosing which options will work best for you. Get ready to design some great things.

You can also choose a one-time purchase, a Set Plan, which means no new features and no support.
This option is not eligible for upgrade pricing. This option does not have the option to add multiple Users that share 1 Seat.

Looking for more functionality?

During the rolling release, you can choose a Release Package.

The releases of Standard and Next are coming soon. In the meantime, you can access similar functionality while using Descon Version 7
and Version 8 side by side. By choosing an Annual Maintenance Plan (AMP) Release Package (available during the rolling release of Version 8),
you will have access to both Version 7 and Version 8 until either Standard or Next is released. At the time of the chosen level’s release,
your Release Package license will be transferred to that level of Version 8, at no additional cost.

Flex (month to month) and Set (one-time) license options are not available for Standard or Next until those levels have been officially released.
To qualify for the transfer to Standard or Next, a Release Package license must be current at the time of the chosen release.

* Majority of the design options of AISC 14th Edition are included in Version 7.

    Here's how it works

From the people who've used Descon

We have been using DesconWin and DesconBrace for about 8 years. It is very powerful but our main benefit has been speed. We are a design-build firm so we do estimates with a preliminary structure design. We used to estimate 10% of the total weight for connection material. But with Descon software, we can do preliminary connection design so fast that we get a better estimate. More than once we won the bid because we could estimate 7% of the total weight for connections instead of 10%. That little difference has been a key factor for being more competitive and winning more bids, mainly after the 2008 crisis that tightened all budgets.

Hector Ochoa

The calculations were accepted without comment by the connections engineer and the designers.

Ron Yeager | Steel-Art, Inc.

Investment on the software provides good return on investment when factoring in countless hours of review time on other methods. … (My Annual Maintenance Plan) provides quick responses to our design questions on projects with fast track schedules and on time commitments.

Eugene Ninnie | CTE-VBMIS Group

I used the DesconPlus Win and DesconPlus Brace for a recent FAA project. The generated written report was very easy to follow (and explain to others) and the generated dxf was a great tool between engineer and detailers.

Rick Koehler

Descon Brace has greatly aided in the design of our connections. The interface is easy to use and the customizability of the connections is supreme. The reporting portion is easy to follow and presentable for a calculation submission. Descon Brace provides great value and should be in every structural engineers software library.
