Gang-Nail software programs include:
The Ecojoist software tool is used for the design and engineering of open metal web floor joists, cassettes and roof rafters. Available as a fully integrated application with Roof & Truss or used stand alone, the design and layout software provides powerful 3D visualisation of the complete project or individual beams. Comprehensive cutting lists and fabrication drawings are produced for optimum processing of the manufacturing requirements.
Roof & Truss
Gang-Nail structural Roof & Truss package, aptly named Roof & Truss is used for the design, detailing, estimating, manufacture and 3D visualisation of complex trussed rafter roofs. Roof & Truss allows easy project control with all the trusses for one project being in the same project area. Trusses are on screen during the build and design process allowing ease of input. Trusses are colour coded depending on the design state to provide a clear understanding to the end user of the design stage. The program allows the user to input walls manually or by importing direct from the Framing software and then linking to standard roof templates and macros which in turn speeds up the overall design process.
Framing, the design tool for Timber Frame and Floors is a modular solution to fit the needs and requirements of today's offsite construction market. Operated extensively by manufacturers, structural engineers and design practices, the software is used for the detailing of timber frame buildings in 3D, producing comprehensive cutting lists, manufacturing drawings for manual production along with direct links to industry automated machinery and saws. Designed to work on Autodesk AutoCAD or Architecture products, Framing is the preferred industry design platform for timber frame.
A management application that links all of the software products from Gang-Nail Systems. Roof & Truss, SpaceJoist, Framing and StairCon® are controlled in a single environment, that is used from project inception to completion and delivery to site. This .NET developed solution controls estimating, order processing and invoicing using central data source. With a fully integrated Customer Resource Management (CRM) module, Matrix combines all department and management data to provide real-time reporting. This management application can help run overall businesses from one site to multiples which provides added value in sharing of critical data. Details of production capacities suited to each of the business functions assists in the procurement process of timber engineering requirements from personnel requirements, through to volume of stock required for job completion and dispatch.
