The Lateral Load Generator/Distributor tool uses the dimensions and load specification for a building and calculates the total lateral wind and seismic loads according to ASCE 7 Standard “Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures”. Plots framing layout of the wall and adds the connection design data (clip designation, # of fasteners, embedment, and screw pattern)  to the typical connection detail. The drawing also includes framing members’ cross-sections and shapes.  The drawing can be exported in AutoCAD® DXF format.
