Weyerhauser and BuildingWorx 2011 Software
- Practical Solutions for Structural Framing Design and Wall Bracing
Weyerhaeuser and Structural Soft are working together to offer engineers a powerful structural design software tool — BuildingWorx 2011 — featuring Weyerhaeuser engineered wood products and prefabricated shear panels. Developed specifically for wood-framed structures, this versatile program for single- and multi-family homes and light commercial buildings offers engineers significant time savings in calculating gravity and lateral loads for the entire structure as complete load path.
The software's unique features include its ability to perform both lateral and gravity systems design in a single physical model, leading to a very efficient building design.
Key Features Include:
- Sophistication and flexibility of BIM combined with simplicity and design efficiency of CAD in a single package.
- Import CAD architectural plans. Export engineering drawings with schedules to CAD.
- Export comprehensive framing and lateral calculations to Excel or PDF. Calculations are based on IBC 2009 building codes.
