23/03/2016 Print options of the report

In the latest version of the software we have added the following new features::

  • Print options of the report: the user can now define the sections to be included in the technical design calculation report; this option will streamline the final report, when the users requests it.
  • Bug fixing e small improvements

09/03/2016 Improvement of the beam restraints management and saving of the optimization process

In the latest version of the software we have added the following new features:

  • Save the optimization process: the user can now decide to permanently change the model after the optimization process
  • Management of the beam restraints: the user can now define a beam element, which does not entirely belong to a floor
  • Extended walls: the user can now define the extended walls with a more complex geometry
  • Bug fixing and small improvements

 

 

26/01/2016 Würth fasteners

In the latest version of the software, we have added the following new features:

  • Würth fasteners: the user can now select the fasteners from a larger database. The fasteners produced by Würth and added to the internal database are: smooth nails, threaded nails, staples and screws
  • Yield moment calculation: the software can now or calculate the yield moment of the screws using the formulas of EN 1995-1-1 or consider the yield moment provided by the manufacturer
  • Bug fixing and small improvements

 

19/01/2016 Lateral torsional buckling checks of the beams

In the latest version of the software, we have added the following new features:

  • Buckling resistance of the beams: the user can now quickly define the lateral restraints of beams as well as all the parameters needed to check the elements
  • Display of the concentrated loads: the user can now view the concentrated loads acting on the beam in a different way from the distributed loads
  • Checks according to the Eurocodes and the National Annexes: the user can now choose to perform the checks even according to the National Annexes of Austria, Germany, United Kingdom and Finland
  • Bug fixing e small improvements

 

11/12/2015 Optimization of the analysis speed and improvement in the simple wall extended to the floor

In the latest version of the software, we have added the following new features:

  • Analysis optimization for multicore processors: thanks to the optimization, we have improved the software performance; the speed analysis increased up to 200%.
  • Improvement of the simple wall extended to the floor: now the user can view the start and the end points on the top of a simple wall extended to the floor. The user can consequently define the model in a simpler way.
  • Bug fixing and small improvements: the connection safety factor used in the checks of the jointed CLT walls has been modified. The user can now view the instantaneous deformation of the beams for each single load (G, Q snow, etc.) in the main window too. The check of the CLT floors and of the platform frame walls have been improved.

04/11/2015 Portable license and service classes

In the latest version of the software, we have added the following new features:

  • Portable license: the TimberTech Buildings License can now be activated on up to one computer. The user can, in the moments he needs, “release the license” and activate it, with his log-in information, on another computer.
  • New “Personal Area”: the user can now quickly access to the “Personal Area” from the TimberTech Buildings – Welcome Page. In this way, he can quickly read the main data related to his license (purchase data, expiration date of the updates).
  • Service class: now the user can set the service class of every timber elements of the model
  • Bug fixing e small improvements

 

27/10/2015 Design according to the Eurocodes

In the latest version of the software, we added the following new features:

  • Check according to the Eurocodes and to the National Annexes: the user can choose between different codes. The software performs checks according to the Eurocodes and the corresponding National Annexes in addition to the checks according to the Italian National Codes.
  • Bug fixing and small improvements
