Analysis and design of a freeform timber structure

With MasterSeries Timber Design software you'll be able to design a vast array of element types, from joists and rafters, to columns, and flitch beams.

You can complete your design to either Eurocode 5 or British Standard. You can also switch between the two codes at the click of a button, allowing you to compare results.

Integrated 3d timber structure analysis and design according to the Eurocode 5

Timber Design is available both as a standalone piece of software, or as an integrated design module as part of a larger software suite. Used in conjunction with MasterFrame, MasterKey: Timber Design allows you to interactively design a whole frame by integrating directly with the 3D structural model.

All MasterSeries design programs feature our "Real Time Design", meaning that your full detailed design report is displayed at all times and instantly updated as changes are made to design parameters. No black boxes and no digging around for detailed design results.
