Multiframe 2D - 2D structural analysis

* Totally graphical modelling

* Fast and accurate solver

* Data exchange to and from AutoCAD and Excel

Designers with a limited budget will appreciate Multiframe2D as an ideal design tool for smaller scale problems which can be solved in two dimensions. Featuring all the modelling commands of the 3D module, 2D makes it easy to model, load and analyse two dimensional structures in minutes. A simple or continuous beam can be quickly and simply sized or you can utilise Multiframe's capabilities for designing residential, commercial or industrial buildings. A simple portal frame or a more complex truss are all easily managed.

Regularly spaced structures are especially easy to handle as Multiframe 2D's snap-to-grid, automatic generation, and duplication, rotation and extrusion functions make light work of repetitive model construction.

The built in library of common structural shapes let you analyse steel, concrete or timber frames. You can include sections made from any other material or automatically include sections designed using Section Maker.

Whether you are designing a simple truss or a frame, Multiframe's 2D analysis will give you the answer you need quickly, easily and accurately.
