The Multiframe Advantage

Multiframe is a suite of structural analysis and design software that works the way structural engineers do.

It has been developed from the ground up for the Windows environment providing you with familiar techniques for building and analysing structural models and smoothly exchanging data with Excel, AutoCad and other Windows programs.

Multiframe's flexible construction capabilities significantly reduces the time it takes you to set up structural models.


This means fewer errors, more time for you to investigate design alternatives and a more professional result. But Multiframe doesn't stop with the analysis. Other modules allow you to design and optimize your structures in accordance with code requirements.
