SEMA Stairs programs have a modular structure and can thus be perfectly adjusted to the individual needs of our customers. What all modules have in common is that they are completely embedded into the SEMA user interface, which follows the modern standards of the Windows XP and Vista operating systems.
Fast Layouts & Plans
Intelligent input options enable the fast and simple input of even the most complicated stairs ground plans. Especially helpful in this context is the excellent integration of architectural drawings which include amongst others an optimised data exchange with architectural and real-estate programs via SCI-XML. Furthermore, also the file formats DXF and DWG can be used, or you can use scanned drawings and integrate them.
Once the basic staircase has been entered into the system, comprehensive input assistants help to quickly enter the stairs, and if necessary also the surrounding walls.
Many Automatic Features
SEMA Stairs Software offers the user very powerful automatic features: repeating details are only entered once and can then be used again via the auto function.
This makes it also possible to adapt the program exactly to your special needs. And the individual steps necessary for this adaptation are so easy, that every user can create them himself.
In every design phase of the staircase, the complete visual representation of the building is just a mouse-click away. Every individual detail and special processing and even the most complicated connections can the visualized without any additional work.
Realistic like Photos
But SEMA does not only offer normal visualization: With a few additional inputs such as ‘Position of the sun’ or ‘Type of lighting’ the entire staircase, individual components or details can be represented in a photo-realistic way. It takes only a few seconds calculation time to print out a picture which shows exactly what the future building will look like.
Fasteners & Brackets
The SEMA program offers the complete range of all imaginable forms of timber connectors. In addition to that you can access fasteners & brackets from the catalogues of all international manufacturers. And of course, the program calculates all necessary processings on the components as well as the counter compo-nents automatically.
The SEMA Software enables the design and the production of wreaths in a simple way. The program auto-matically calculates the transitions of strings or handrails – but offers at the same time the option to modify all components also manually.
Almost all staircase shapes can be realised with the SEMA program. As a helpful tool, an assistant for spiral staircases has been integrated which offers the possibility to combine all forms and shapes of staircases – for unlimited design options.
Often it takes a lot of time to print out drawings – but not with SEMA. Drawing templates and layouts can be individually adapted to the needs of your company. Furthermore, you have comprehensive functions that automate the drawing output so that you do not need to spend any more time on it. Drawings can be printed out in any scales and formats, up to true-to-size printouts. Also, continuous printouts and the option to print out the project on several pages is available.
It is for the first time possible to represent the components on screen with all their processings and details and then produce them in exactly this way. This applies to CNC machines with 3-axis just as well as for 5-axis systems.
The SEMA program is compatible with most CAM systems, which means that no new or double settings have to be made, nor are expensive post-processors necessary. If the existing post-processor supports the file format, an automatic production from the Stairs CAD on CNC machines is no problem.
