Profis Software was RE: Great ASCE7 spreadsheet / ComboBoxes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Have any of you used Hiltis Profis software? It's a free download. I  DL'd it but have not tried it. It looks very comprehensive albeit complicated. A collegue told me he gor great tech support from Hilti on how to use it. He likes it.

Originally, I developed this to answer this question: “What in the world is this function good for?” It became good enough to use regularly in my library.


As Dennis Wish already mentioned, I also use Index and Match functions, but I use them for my anchor bolt and expansion bolt tables which brings me to one of my biggest pet peeves. Why can’t the manufacturers (Redhead, Simpson, Hilti, etc.) get together and come up with a standard capacity for specific edge distances, embedment and spacing? All of them are different! Arghhhh!!!!
