The program contains a library of rolled and cold-formed profiles, reinforced concrete and timber elements. The program can be used for easy insertion of planar and spatial bar systems, both small systems comprising a number of bars, and large 3D structures containing hundreds of bars and nodes. Therefore, it is possible to count such construction systems as: multi-level and multi-bay frames, planar and spatial trusses, lattice towers, surface bar structures, bar grates, etc. The program makes it possible to work with dimensioning modules according to Eurocodes: EuroStal, EuroŻelbet and EuroStopa.
