I am searching for reliable structural software. Anyone have experience with Woodworks, http://woodworks-sof...com/us-edition/.
Other software suggestions for residential calculations? Thanks, Steve

Why do it it in the first place?
if it’s not in the code span tables for simple spans is off to the p.eng
all engineered products. Lvl, jsi joists are referred to the supplier p.eng, he can make sure there’s no roof point loads etc, once he gets the truss info
i don’t even spec posts under girders.
too busy to be doing the p.eng work. Lol

Thanks for all the input. I have opted to stay with StruCalc. I use this as I design just for my own peace of mind,
ie; will an 18" beam at the top of the stairs give proper head room etc. I do not call out or claim to provide any
engineering to clients and I can send the plans to Structural Engineer or the client or their contractor can. 95%
of the buildings we design are constructed in non permitted/non inspected areas and we suggest engineering
but the ultimate decision is up to the homeowner and their builder/contractor.
