My firm is based in Dallas and seldom is involved in residential design
work, so we rarely design in wood.  However, when we do, we use both of
AFPA's Woodworks programs:  Connections and Sizer.  Both programs are
pretty slick.  Connections covers most common connections, and has a
simple Windows graphical interface.  Sizer 97 incorporates the 1997 NDS,
32-bit Windows, and a graphical interface similar to RAM Steel and PCA

For more information on either product, or to download demo versions,
visit the AWC website at:  For detailed
technical questions, I recommend that you contact Gord Cameron with
Software Metrics (the software author) at:  gordc(--nospam--at)
