AUCKLAND, New Zealand, May 14, 2020 – FRAMECAD is excited to announce the latest release of structural engineering software: FRAMECAD Structure 9.2. Now upgraded to the latest IntelliCAD 9.2 platform, FRAMECAD Structure 9.2 delivers a range of new features providing increased speed, design flexibility, and accuracy.
As part of our continuous improvement program, all new features are added for your convenience. All updates are available at no additional cost to your current FRAMECAD software license.
FRAMECAD Structure 9.2 updates include:
- Updated engineering methods enable better design and engineering using different construction methods. This is achieved with a flexible design and engineering software that can adapt to the local norms.
- Now provides easier access to existing jobs on opening Structure.
- The introduction of cross sections makes it easier to review the design and check for any issues, providing improved speed and accuracy when designing.
- Ability to modify the stud spacings either for the entire design or for a section, saving time during the design process.
- Improved design of openings – When designing an opening you can now automatically place additional jam studs around openings based on the local building requirements.
- Seamless integration to Revit, using FRAMECAD Revlink*, has now been extended to FRAMECAD Structure bringing streamlined design and engineering capability into your BIM model.
*The FRAMECAD Revlink plug-in provides seamless integration between Revit and the FRAMECAD software suite. Recently updated to include FRAMECAD Structure, you can read more about FRAMECAD Revlink here.
A complete overview of all Structure 9.2 updates, including step by step how-to information and additional training videos, is available for all FRAMECAD customers in Knowledge Center.
About FRAMECAD Structure
Based on the powerful IntelliCAD platform, FRAMECAD Structure is a computer-aided engineering software that saves you time and money. Completing over 25,000 engineering calculations per square meter of roof and walls in just seconds, FRAMECAD Structure improves your engineering time by up to 80%.
FRAMECAD Structure makes real-time engineering calculations as the designs are created – analyzing loads, deflections and other forces – making it an easy process to optimize building code compliance whilst delivering best value engineering practices. The software generates a design checklist automatically generated based on the building code and other design factors. The enhanced 3D view displays framing components and an easy step-by-step truss, joist and wall builder.
With its universal design format and instant engineering analysis, FRAMECAD Structure is the world’s most compliant engineering software for cold formed steel construction. It has been developed for worldwide application, drawing from CFS building codes for USA, Canada, China, Europe, Russia, Brazil, South Africa and Australia/New Zealand.
