XFrame2D is the MOST intuitive structural analysis and design software for 2D models of any structure. Consider, for example, a calculation of 2D frameworks in steel and/or timber.

It is developed in close cooperation with the users of the software.

This page contains a complete list of all the features of XFrame2D. For more information check the Documentation XFrame2D.
