Basic Software Modules

Curtain Wall

Choose from a wide-variety of common curtain wall applications, such as bypass, infill, spandrel, parapet, and opening conditions. Complete the assembly with TSN's connections and Hilti's fasteners.

Load Bearing Wall

Optimize load bearing stud elements in low and mid-rise structures. Select fromStandard sections or the optimal SigmaStudsection.

X-Brace Shear Wall

Shear wall design is simplified with the power of SSS 7. Newly added special seismic design requirements provide clients with multiple design options.

Floor Framing

Choose from TSN'sPrimeJoistor Standard sections to quickly select a steel-framed floor system.

Roof Framing

Design roof rafters and joists quickly and easily with SteelSmartSystem's Roof Module.

Roof Truss

Select from a variety of common trusses, or create your own truss to design the members, connections, fasteners, and lateral bracing elements.

Moment Resisting Short Wall

Simplify and optimize the design and construction of a short wall or half wall in residential and commercial cold formed steel framing.

Advanced Software Modules

Lateral Load Generator/Distributor

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”.
