Edit or Create DSTV Files

MetroID DSTVEditor is a graphical software application that processes DSTV files. The DSTVEditor can read a wide range of DSTV blocks (or types of operations) including, external and internal contours (AK, IK), holes and long holes (BO ), marking and powder marking (PU, KO) for I-Beams, U-channels, L Profiles, Rectangular tubes, and others. DSTVEditor can also be used as a fully featured DSTV editor to create DSTV files from scratch in an office environment.

About DSTV file format

The DSTV file format is an industry-standard defined by the German Steel Construction Association (Deutsche Stahlbau-Verband). In the last 20 years, the format has become an international standard for communicating with beam lines, drill lines, coping machines, and plate cutting. Although limited in comparison with the IFC file format, the DSTV file format is still widely used for information transfer between steel detailing software and fabrication machinery.   You can download a free trial here!
