Sometimes a big 3D structural analysis software package is a little bit too complex or just excessive for the simple, straightforward engineering problems such as low rise buildings and simple beam design.
MasterSeries PowerPad bundles together a wide range of essential structural analysis and design capabilities to be able to carry out a small building project from the bottom to the top.
The development of MasterSeries is always focused on the needs of our customers. We get a lot of enhancement ideas, from which we select the most popular. One of the enhancements, which is already implemented is the shop welded moment connection.
We are only weeks away from the launch of MasterSeries 2019, and we want to share with you another exciting connection enhancement to look forward to. MasterKey: Moment Connections 2019 is coming with a new connection type.
On Tuesday, we held the sneak preview webinar of MasterSeries 2019, which is only weeks away, to share with you the upcoming main improvements. Now we would like to give you a deeper insight into the upcoming bracing connections.
