hsbTimber is an open, easy-to-use CAD solution, designed to meet the challenges of modern construction. Based on AutoCAD® Architecture, it has a broad functionality, ranging from oak framing, oak roof trusses, open frames and classic roof structures, to the design and manufacturing of carports, balconies and staircases – even building bridges and playgrounds.
The hsbTimber entry level module provides the full range of functionality expected from modern design software, with many innovative features. As well as providing 3D solid modelling, hsbTimber enables the advanced editing of each and every beam during the whole process. Users can set out roofs – including dormers – and automatically insert beams at will. They can edit all objects and create customisable reports in Excel or Access. In addition, hsbTimber has a standard library, covering important wood construction connections, as well as a user-defined catalogue for materials, components and tools.
hsbCAD includes the full range of modelled Cullen hangers which can also be estimated through hsbEstimator.
