RE: ENERCALC

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It is a useful program but like any other software program or design
spreadsheet it is not a foolproof black box.

I paid for the v5.8 when they came out with the offer for the free upgrade to
v6.0 when it came out. I think it must be taking longer than planned because
I have not seen any updates or additional information so maybe they went into
hiding. I have sent a couple of e-mails asking about the status of new
version and have not had a response.

I thought I found some information buried on v6.0 somewhere on their website
but it was not anything more than they had on the flyer.

5.8.0 is what I've got.  Dated 1-Dec-2003.  And I'm definitely on their
mailing list.

So what is the current version? 5.8.x?

I already have a standalone wood framing program that I really like.  Thanks
for the offer though!

My point is, Enercalc seems like the only thing out there that "does it all"
so to speak, without an engineer needing to collect 20 different
spreadsheets for 20 different tasks.  I'm eagerly awaiting v6.0 if it is
truly coming.  I would advise people not to use it until they get to about
v6.2 and fix all the new bugs though :)

It wouldn't surprise me if these guys were folding up shop and fleeing the
country or something.  Several of Enercalc's design modules are questionable
at best, despite being on v5.8.  And their service is non-existent.  Yet is
seems like they are the only software product in their niche that is widely
used.  Unfortunately it is damn useful.  But why can't they put out a
reliable product, or why hasn't someone else jumped at the opportunity to
steal their market share.  It seems like all the respectable engineering
software companies only focus on complex FEA products.  That's a mistake on
their part I think.

Does anyone know what happened to ENERCALC? I've gone to the web site and I
can't get any information about updates or revisions past the 5.6.1 patch
(Oct. 26, 2002). I thought they were going to put out a 5.8 version in Fall
of 2003 and  a SEL Version 6 later on but I can't find any info on this.
I've sent email to support(--nospam--at)enercalc.com but I get no response. What gives?
