Title: RE:STAAD.etc for Architects - Timber, Masonry, Steel & Concrete

Perhaps an appropriate response for structural engineers would be for the users of STAAD to stop paying for license maintenance and updates, and write a letter to Research Engineers explaining that the reason for doing this is "STAAD.etc for Architects."  Maybe Research Engineers would have to decide which market is more important to them.

WHAT!!!!

I'm not the world's biggest fan of Research Engineers, partly because I've always considered them a little on the "iffy" side

ethically.

This (IMO) is a case in point. Can they do this and not be sanctioned in some way by the CA PE board, for instance?
