MasterSeries: Office Tools
Export analysis results, calculations, and design output to Microsoft Word or Excel
MasterSeries Office Tools is an add-on program that provides you with two distinct features:
- The ability to export all analysis, design and results to Microsoft Office software packages (namely Excel and Word), and
- Grants you access to the Calculation Wizard, a separate application for the creation of calculation templates
Note: MasterSeries Office Tools is included in the PowerPad suite.
Calculation Wizard is a standalone piece of software that's used for the creating calculation templates. It allows you to speed up the process of generating and verifying common engineering calculations, be it for a timber flitch beam, masonry walls and columns, or steel variety of steel members. Calculation Wizard will allow you to modify and create custom calculations, in a similar fashion to Microsoft Excel. However, unlike Microsoft Excel, Calculation Wizard has been built specifically for the purpose of generating engineering calculations, giving it an edge in terms of functionality and output.
MS Office Integration
With Office Tools you'll be able to export all frame data, graphics, design and results to either Microsoft Word, or Microsoft Excel. By exporting to either of these programs, you'll be able to make adjustments and tailor your reports to your liking, before printing them off, or passing them on to a colleague.
Calculation Wizard Features
- In-built steel design functions to calculate compression, moment capacity, local capacity and LTB resistance
- Introduce conditional "If" statements to make your calculations even more powerful
- Comprehensive databases of calculations for timber, masonry, steel and concrete
