Enercalc fills a unique and needed niche, but still has a lot of room for improvement.

Kommentare: It fills a niche that there just aren't a lot of other options for; we've looked.

Vorteile: Enercalc handles many of the simple piecemeal calcs that come up on a typical project. Many times it's just not worth the time to build a true "model" in other software just to check the capacity of one member. Other times, you just need a quick ballpark verification of another piece of software. It handles enough different calc situations that you could use it to check the worst-case footings, columns, beams, and walls, and cover most of a simple building, or check specific areas of more typical structures. It's nice in that it covers several situations each in steel, concrete, wood, and masonry. Not exhaustive, but enough of the basics that it fills a good niche. The multiple material capabilities is nice in that you can compare a wood header vs. a steel beam in the same software, or a wood vs. CMU vs. RC shear wall. Pole footings and point loads on slabs are nice calcs often not addressed in other software. Input is fairly intuitive. Selection for wood members is thorough. Development seems to be improving after a long time of negligible improvements, which is encouraging.

Nachteile: 1) Customer support was always friendly & helpful, but there seemed to be almost zero program development for several years. Bug fixes took multiple years in some cases, enough so that we often forgot we'd submitted a bug report when notified that our issue had been resolved much, much later. That does seem to be improving lately (2017) with better emphasis on releasing patches/updates.
2) The licensing is still in need of some work. Still one of the most painful of the 30 pieces of software in our office. Not being able to communicate with their license server is a longstanding problem. Licenses in a pool not being released upon program exit is another.
3) Project printing & the need to refresh all reports before being able to print something.
4) One common question from tech support when reporting problems is if we are using network storage. I believe every job I've worked at the last 20+ years has used network storage for project files. That really shouldn't be an issue for any modern software.
5) It's like a spreadsheet w/ the formula bar hidden, in that it's not transparent to the user what is happening inside the "black box". You just see input & output, & with the various bugs over the years, I still need to maintain my own spreadsheets or worksheets (i.e. MathCAD, SMath) to check Enercalc output when it's fishy.
6) Entering user-defined cross-sections is time consuming as it doesn't calculate section properties based on input dimensions like other software.

Long Time User and have watched the software grow to a good product with still more area for growth.

Kommentare: Efficient Engineering calculations to be more cost effective in a tighter market. One stop shop for a good part of all our engineering calculations.

Vorteile: I like how you can set up a project and have all the different components in one files and print it all at once. I like the variety of different building components that can be designed with this program. I am a visual person so the pictures (although a little weak) help with the understanding of the member or structure I am dealing with. In general I like the way the tabs are set up for entering data. I like the option to calculate members under several different Code or Design Standards. The shape values calculator is handy for a number of retrofit designs but still has room for improvement. after all I know about the program I would still purchase it if I were new to looking at it.
Tech support is very knowledgeable in all aspects. If you find an issue with the program, they are very responsive to fix the issue. They truly put out upgrades regularly unlike some of the other ones who wait for the next years release to fix an issue.

Nachteile: Would really like to see the program Link Data from one member to another, which I have heard is coming but for me not soon enough. It would be nice to design a beam and link the load to the column and then the column load to the footing type of thing. Would like to see wood beams especially calculated and take into account bearing lengths. The wind calculator could be improved but it works.
