Re: SOFTWARE: Do You Find "Woodworks Structural Office" To Be Useful?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I recently found a bug in the col design that I passed on to the Canadian team.  The program wouldn't allow me to designate about which axis to take lateral stability analysis.  It's to be corrected in the next fix.
I also tend to use the software for isolated  member design.  The concept module scared me off after I had to take several runs getting the joist layouts to set up correctly.  I have only briefly perused the shearwall module, because I'm "afraid" of that too.  This seems to be a general comment from other users around here.
I concur with the comment that there is poor, or no, user-friendly connection between the modules.
Is there some conflict between the Canadian and US development team that makes that difficult?

I use Wood Works just about every day for beams and
columns, but I could not get shear wall to work and
I talked to another Can. engineer and he said the same.
I understood that there was supposed to be a fix coming
out in the fall.  I have not tried Concept.  I will
forward this and your message to Acronym.
