I would say the same general things as Bill Allen about Formation Design's beta version of Multiframe. I have used it in the past on a Mac and I am now starting to use it on my PC. Time will tell how well I like it. The graphical model input is embarrassingly fast and easy and easy to edit both graphically and by text. I have found their Section Maker pretty nifty for creating custom sections. I have also created a catalog of LVL's, glu-lams and such, for wood projects. They also have a dynamic analysis version available that I have not used. If anyone is interested I can dig up their web page and phone #. I am curious if anyone else on the list uses it. > My basic computer >philosophy is that if I have to look at a manual to do build a basic model, >then it wasn't written properly.
