Free steel take off software that provides the fastest method of entering materials into 'sortable' electronic lists for estimating and factory production. Do a take-off once and get it right first time. Create lists in seconds...sort on material, section, type.. export the data, create reports, BOMs, lists, production sheets etc. You'll never have to re-type material lists again!


FastCAM® MTO™ is a steel estimating spreadsheet program for steel takeoff that simplifies the quotation process. As it stands, many lists are handwritten. Where a spreadsheet is used it's not in a standard way and they aren't able to contain the detail of hand drawings. With FastCAM® MTO, you can appropriately capture take off data in electronic format. To automate and improve time to quote, the MTO format can be 'fed' into our proprietary quotation system, however you do not need any other FastCAM® or 3rd party software other than Microsoft Windows.

Simply enter data direct from the command line or use the drop down catalogue list to select sections. The Job Details sections, (Assembly, Drawing, Facility & Item) now have mouse over tabbed flyouts to provide function descriptions. Color coded prompts are used to guide you through the requirements for minimum data entry. A graphics screen is used for visual checking of the data as it is entered and a new diagnosis feature provides data entry Errors & Warnings. In the standard view, the vertical scales are exaggerated to provide clarity. Zoom facilities are provided to allow precise checking of details.

FastCAM® MTO™ data has many uses and you can even go a step further and use the data in an external fully automated quotation system such as FastCAM® QE™ to produce accurate and optimized quotes based on exact stock sizes.
