The fastest way to design baseplates with post-installed and cast-in anchors; post-installed rebar; concrete overlay, handrails and other fixtures with Hilti

PROFIS Engineering Suite is cloud-based, so you can get started instantly. Even the latest codes and product details update automatically. All this pre-set information can save you hours researching the latest approvals, codes and anchors. Avoid other slow, error-prone tasks – like manual load transfer – thanks to the direct import function from other structural analysis software such as Etabs, Robot, SAP2000, StaadPro, Dlubal RFEM and RSTAB.

Minimise waste and save time, without compromising on code compliance

The extra precision offered by the paid version of PROFIS Engineering Suite, especially Component-based Finite Element Method (CBFEM) analysis, helps you cut excessive tolerances when designing connections. The result is a design which helps you to save material and labor costs, while still reflecting relevant codes and real behavior of the whole baseplate connection.

Free structural connection design software also available

After the free trial of the premium version ends, you can still rely on PROFIS Engineering Suite for virtually all common structural connections. Our standard free software is ideal for everyday cases where rigid design or a baseplate rigidity check is enough. You will be able to design cast-in place anchors using the free software.

Easily document your designs and export them to your main BIM and CAD software

Detailed, step-by-step anchor design reports displaying drawing and structural formulas on each step can be generated on-demand. Your designs can also be exported in 2D and 3D for integration into your standard BIM and CAD programs.

Structural design software in line with local or international standards

Various Eurocodes, ACI, AISC, Indian Standards, Australian Standards and Russian Codes are supported. PROFIS Engineering Suite automatically updates to use the latest versions of the codes and approvals you need.

Engineering software, but not just for Engineers

Designing with PROFIS Engineering Suite can improve efficiency on the jobsite too. Site Managers can use our smartphone app to find anchor item numbers, while Contractors can easily generate handrail reports to satisfy EN 1090 quality and safety standards.

PROFIS Engineering Suite

An all-in-one solution for connection and fastening design

PROFIS Engineering Suite is user-friendly, cloud-based software that makes designing and analysing structural connections faster and easier than ever.

Not just for anchors, PROFIS designs, calculates and analyses multiple fixings, including steel to concrete, concrete to concrete and steel to masonry as well as entire handrail and baseplate solutions that are more reliable, more cost-effective and code-compliant. The software also comes with application specific engineering trainings that enable you to unlock the full potential of PROFIS.


*Once your trial has expired, you will have access to our STANDARD version for free.

Choose the version and license model that best suits your needs

The Standard version is always free – or try the fully featured Premium version for free for 30 days. After this trial, you can automatically continue to the free Standard version or purchase a Premium license.


Enable compliance

Get peace of mind knowing that your design will automatically meet local codes and approvals. As a leading manufacturer of anchors, interpreting codes and putting them to work is our key ambition. 

Improve accuracy

Manual input errors mean costly rework. Get it right the first time by importing load cases from structural analysis software, processing multiple loads simultaneously and building accurate BIM/CAD models.

Save time

Use templates to design connections in minutes. Don't waste time researching – let PROFIS spec the anchors instead. And speed up communication by granting your entire team access to the most recent file in the cloud.

Learn efficiently

Whether you are an experienced or a graduate engineer, our technical training – covering application basics and advanced modules – enable you to do fast, compliant designs.

Anchoring to Concrete

Design complex and day-to-day structural baseplate connections

Use preset templates to design concrete fixings including baseplates, anchors, welds and stiffeners quickly and accurately. With just a click you can analyse baseplates using CBFEM and perform rigidity tests to determine whether to adapt the design or the loads. Optimize fixture points and perform stress and strain checks – PROFIS considers applied loads such as seismic and fatigue and can find economical solutions for avoiding breakout using supplementary reinforcement. Smart baseplate design further simplifies your design process.

Generate a customized report complete with code references, calculations, product information and images.

Concrete to Concrete: PIR

Everything you need to design post-installed rebar applications

Add or extend concrete elements whether you're working with existing rebar or missing starter bars. Solve concrete structural joints and splices, and then verify the shear resistance at the interface between the old and new concrete.

Need to adapt the layout or geometry of your PIR design? PROFIS lets you easily customize the diameter, embedment depth and spacing parameters for existing concrete as well as post-installed.

Concrete to concrete: Overlay

Design for concrete overlay and post-installed shear dowels

With PROFIS you can dimension post-installed shear connectors and verify the interface between the concrete cast at different times. Establish whether your design has edges or is symmetric, and then define different areas of acting shear. You'll know your designs are sound thanks to intuitive 3D graphics that show how stresses vary throughout the connection.

Ready for installation? PROFIS has already saved you time by optimizing the layout.

Anchoring to masonry

Design masonry fixings more productively and accurately

PROFIS Engineering Suite can help you design accurate baseplate connections using masonry-approved anchors. Save time with intuitive built-in templates that combine your on-site data with factors such as allowable tension and shear loads while considering load reductions and geometry requirements.

Select from multiple sizes and types of brick or concrete masonry units, adjust their layout and define whether grout is present. You can even create your own templates to reduce design time on similar projects.

Handrail Fixings

Design complete connections for platforms, balconies and staircases

PROFIS doesn't consider just codes and regulations when designing handrail connections – it determines the loads acting on the handrail depending on how it's being used, wind conditions and more. It then performs a stability check.

Within minutes you'll create complete designs for welds based on thickness, weld type and material. And to reduce steel costs, PROFIS can suggest where to incorporate plastic into the design to allow for thinner rail and post profiles that still satisfy regulations.
