Structural Engineering Software
I have been using Staad III
for the last 10 years and now I am probably about to change to a
different program. We do a good deal of architectural work which
inevitably requires 3D analysis/design. We are looking at the host
of programs available with confusion and apprehension.
I downloaded a copy of IES
VisualAnalysis to review. Anybody using it?
What are the thoughts of real
structural engineers on the software available? I am not
interested in buying the most expensive program as architects comprise
half of my practice - that is to say, l too am under-paid. We are
very interested in accuracy, reliability, a short learning curve, and
ease of use.
Thanks in advance!
