Boise Cascade EWP Software

Boise Cascade EWP software includes the following applications/services:

BC FRAMER® CADD Framing Software
BC FRAMER® helps customers create floor and roof framing layouts quickly. This easy-to-use computer-aided 3D drafting program frames layouts and creates piece and price reports.

BC CALC® Sizing Software
BC CALC® performs engineering analysis to help our customers size beams, joists, columns, studs and tall walls for their building projects. It is simple to use, yet flexible enough to analyze a variety of common applications. The user enters the member geometry, adds loads, holes and other relevant data, then selects a product for analysis. The program helps the user identify which of Boise Cascade’s engineered wood products meet the demands of the application.

After the analysis has been run, the user can create an easy to read PDF design report that clearly shows important span and load information as well as the analysis results.

BC FRAMER® CADD Framing Software (US and Canada)

BC FRAMER® helps customers create floor and roof framing layouts quickly. This easy-to-use computer-aided 3D drafting program frames layouts and creates piece and price reports. It also draws framing drawings that use Boise Cascade’s engineered wood products and develops schedules. BC Framer’s editing and drawing tools allow flexibility when modifying framing layouts. You can also customize the layout drawing with framing details, notes, symbols, and accessories.
