Fwd: Re: GOOD STRUCTURAL PROGRAMS

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I agree that Staad-III has taken more than its share of criticisms.  I
practice in a small office doing a wide range of structural engineering
consulting.  I have used Staad-III since version 10.0 and have had many
complaints, not so much about the program, but about support and
documentation.  I have used several other programs and have found similar
problems.  I suppose that my comfort with the program comes from many years
of program use.  When designing moderately orthogonal plan buildings, I
wish the Staad-III program was as easy to use as say...  RamSteel
(RamAnalysis).
