SmartFrame Design

In the ever changing world of construction it is of great comfort to know that Tilling is standing there beside you. The frequent, and quite often time consuming, challenge of understanding the new building code regulations is a matter of concern to any practitioner that designs and engineers building projects

Take Off

This is an ever expanding development in engineering software. A simple, yet outstandingly precise floor joist layout system designs the joists and floor beams as they are drawn. Industry first “interoperability” means that SmartFrame Take-off directly imports data from Mitek, Multinail and Pryda truss and frame software, and imports from CAD drawings.

Then, at the push of a button, a fully detailed full colour layout and quantity take off is produced before your eyes. Take off has now become so sophisticated that it allows full load path analysis for accedited users.
