Truswal design and engineering software is the industry leading design software used to create cold-formed steel trusses. Powerful, flexible and comprehensive, the design software is capable of designing virtually any truss in steel that can be produced in wood. With a seamless transfer of geometry to the roll former software, the package is unbeatable in the industry.
True design and engineering tools, the combined strength of the INTELLIBUILD™ design software and TRUSPLUS™ engineering software allow you to see exactly what you are designing and will allow you to optimize each truss to ensure a cost-effective product. Developed with the designer in mind, default settings handle most specific variables. Each component is defined by a set of properties which allow you to quickly and accurately develop a truss – built the way you want it. Intuitive and easy to learn, you will also appreciate how items are linked together so that one adjustment ensures everything else still fits. Complicated designs are handled quickly and accurately without complicated input.
NUPANEL’s automation and modeling provide improvements in accuracy and efficiency that are exponential, all while working within the world’s most accepted design platform, AutoCAD. NUPANEL is innovative software that allows the generation of 3-D metal stud wall framing models while working within a much simpler 2-D environment. These easily produced models, which include the ability to input scheduled doors, windows, and other features, will generate labeled and dimensioned fabrication drawings, material cut lists, bills-of-materials and erection drawings all at the touch of a button. And because NUPANEL allows you to work with AutoCAD, the models and drawings may be integrated with other AutoCAD drawings and objects.
Imagine having the ability to receive and transmit files and drawings with design professionals inside and outside of your firm without the need for translation, while working within an environment in which you are likely already proficient. These are but a few of the advantages of working with NUPANEL. Whether generating impressive models for presentation to your client, plans and elevations for communication with the engineering team, material lists for suppliers, shop drawings for fabrication, erection drawings for the field, or responding to revisions, NUPANEL allows production of project documents with unprecedented accuracy at lightning speeds.
The only software available of its kind, the newest design layout software offered to the Authorized Fabricator family is NUJOIST. NUJOIST software aids in the layout and placement of the NUJOIST floor system. NUJOIST software allows a simple and time efficient method of determining the placement of each pre-punched hole for floor joists. This software offers you 3D views and utilizes the floor plan to line up every hole, ensuring a perfect match even on the most complex of floor plans.
This kind of technology allows for each job to be extremely time and cost effective. Including a bill of materials list to cover not only the joist quantities and lengths needed, but also the clips, strapping, blocking and the rim joist required for each project. Consisting of a wider variety of sizes than most steel floor systems, such as larger sizes, NUJOIST allows Nuconsteel and our Authorized Fabricators access to a wider range of markets.
