I’m told by peers that it works OK, whatever that means …

I am mostly interested in the shear wall module.  I have a large, several story building to do with both wind (I think including torsion) and seismic.  If it works fairly well, it could save me a ton of time.

I use it mainly for beams and cols.  I find it quick and easy to do simple beams and cols.  The output is easy to understand and printout is usually 1 page for me.

 

In the past I tried but found the concept layouts hard to do but that may have been improved.  I haven’t used the shear wall module to any extent.

 

What would you like to know?

Has anyone had experience with WoodWorks software?  Your recommendations and/or feelings?
