XConstruct

User-friendly and modern

XConstruct is a user-friendly and modern toolbox that allows you to make your calculations quickly and very easily.

You can add multiple calculations to your project. Of course you can move, copy and delete them. You will experience how easy that is.

The powerful and modern user interface ensures fast input. For example, dimensions can be changed easily by clicking on the dimension lines. After each change the calculation is started immediately. The result of the calculation is shown on the right.

XConstruct is designed generically so we can easily add new modules. This is a first start. We will quickly expand the number of modules in the coming months. Do you have suggestions or wishes? Please let us know! With your help we can expand XConstruct with that new functionality.

Unique transparent calculation output

Like our other programs, XConstruct generates a fully transparent calculation that you as a structural engineer can check manually. This unique output gives you insight into the calculation, all used EN-formulas including a reference to the EUROCODE. The calculations of XConstruct are accepted by inspection authorities without problems.

In the main screen you see the results of the selected (current) calculation at the right hand side. This screen area is dock able. This means that you can place this panel anywhere on your screen. When you have a 2nd monitor you can show your calculation results here. In short. You have everything in view. The input and the calculation results. After each change there is a new calculation. You can also immediately see what the effect is. That is not only pleasant but also very efficient.

Of course you can make a total report of the selected calculations. (Print preview, printer, PDF and RTF)
