Custom Templates and Workflow

Build templates and processes customized to your team's needs.

Create pre-defined templates for frequently encountered design scenarios, so you can save time by simply selecting the appropriate template and making necessary adjustments instead of starting from scratch.

Access and work on projects simultaneously, regardless of your physical location.

Share project files, make real-time updates, and provide feedback. Empower your team to work efficiently and effectively as a cohesive unit.

It's very quick. Some of the settings you can set up, like the code edition, your snow load, and wind load. You can put those things in and save them, and for every project that you pull up it will go back to those defaults and you can, you can do your computations in a matter of a couple of minutes. You just plug in the information, and it spits out whether it'll pass or fail.
