Standardized yet dynamic component libraries are the basis for fast designing. With our software we supply the data for the most commonly used timber and steel components as well as for many constructional details. Company or project specific standards can be created during the design process and then be saved and used for other projects.
Whether it is about a new building or refurbishing an existing one, whether there are oblique-angled layouts, different roof pitches or variable rafter and truss distances: flexibility is the key. And at the end the integrated visualization presents the project in the best light.
These assistants are fast and simple-to-use input tools for purlin, lap-jointed purlin and abutment roof profiles and also for dormers and roof windows. Changes are immediately updated and visible, all details are automatically dimensioned for maximum convenience.
With Roof Design all kinds of roof landscapes can be created - without size limitations but with automatic area intersection. The subsequent editing of all roof areas is possible, either with or without roofing tile grid.
The Rafter System enables automatic or free spacing of all roof members, plus the option to position components freely in space for more flexible detail constructions. It also offers three-dimensional component intersection with immediate calculation of all component lengths and processings. There is also the possibility to calculate the cross-sections of components during the construction process with the integrated structural analysis. Additionally it is possible to enter commonly used steel profiles, fasteners and brackets for more complicated structural requirements.
Faster designing of new buildings, adding of new storeys or refurbishments with these pre-defined construction details. Also helpful are the extensive libraries including traditional timber connections and fasteners/brackets. For an efficient realisation of projects, global and cross-project macros of individual members, whole roofs or even complete buildings are available.
