StruCalc is pleased to announce the latest software to come from its development team, the StruCalc Mitek Importer. Due to increased demand from engineers and architects for the ability to import designs from other structural software programs, we have created a program to import MiTek Sapphire Structure jobs directly into StruCalc. Now with just a few clicks a designer can import an entire house designed with MiTek Sapphire Structure into the new StruCalc Importer and create engineered StruCalc projects!
MiTek Inc., headquartered in St. Louis, Mo., United States, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., is the world’s leading supplier of state-of-the-art connector products, engineered software and services to the structural building components industry. With operations on six continents, MiTek companies develop and sell products and services in the residential, commercial, industrial and institutional construction markets. MiTek’s SAPPHIRE Suite is the residential construction industry’s first 3D BIM platform built from the ground up specifically for structural framing design and production of prefabricated components.
