StruCalc Features

StruCalc 8.0 is the next generation of structural analysis software. The intuitive interface combined with the power to design multiple span members using steel, wood, flitch beams or manufactured lumber propels StruCalc ahead of the competition.

This is the features page for StruCalc 7.0, a now outdated version of our software. To see what StruCalc 8.0 looks like please go to our homepage and follow the links from there.
