WallPanelPro

WallPanelPro is a wall design and analysis software that integrates with Truss Design & Estimating (Truss D&E) and Truss Modeling.

Capabilities:

  • Draw, label and dimension walls
  • Metric and Imperial Units
  • Design walls quickly
  • View single wall panels, complete floors, and complete buildings with 3D Viewer
  • Layout wall studs
    • Break walls into panels
    • Distribution beam at top of wall
    • User created beam pockets in wall
    • Add wall stud at specific location (include rotation)
    • Mirror Interior Walls (floor to floor)
    • Set initial stud spacing
    • Add door and window openings
    • Label studs, plates, headers, etc.
  • Summarize wall cost and sections
  • Sheer Wall Analysis done with a click of a button
    • Diaphragm analysis, per level
    • Plan layout of shear forces on walls, per level
    • Shear wall analysis report
    • Create alternate X-braced bays, Left-Right, Left-Right, until shear resistance exceeds actual building shear forces.
    • Align X-braced bays, top level to lowest level
    • Option to X-Brace both sides of wall
    • Allow user to Set/Change X-braced Bay
    • X-Brace hold-down connection design
    • Design Type I shear panels (solid wall area) with criteria similar to X-brace design.
    • Create Type II shear panels(perforated wall) until total shear panels along design plane exceed design requirements (single level only)
    • Type II shear panel hold-down connection design
    • Show failed design in red. Also list failed results on 1st page of analysis report.
    • Diaphragm and shear wall deflection calculations
  • Designs Studs + Connections, Bottom and top plates, Headers + Connections, and Bridging: Straps +Blocking Connection
  • Design up to a 6 story building
  • Mirror openings from one level to level
  • Easy to use and learn
  • Break walls into panels
