Truss D & E Modeling

The Truss Design & Estimating (Truss D&E) Modeling program will save you so much time. Just fill in one input screen and your roof layout will draw and with another click, you can analyze all the trusses in your system. Clients' say that what would have taken them 2 days to design in Truss D&E they now do in minutes with Truss D&E Model. There is no CAD experience necessary. The idea behind the program is to keep things basic, yet fast. The program will not handle all modeling situations, but can do 60-80% of most engineering jobs. The program cost can be very easily recuperated because of the speed.
