Beam for Windows by Dymak

Beam for Windows by Dymak

Beam for Windows by Dymak

There used to be a great 2D beam analysis program called Beam for Windows by a company called Dymak.  I cant find anything about either of them in the search engines.

Does anyone know what became of it and who sells it now?


RE: Beam for Windows by Dymak

Try colincaprini.com for an alternative beam program

RE: Beam for Windows by Dymak

There all kinds of beam programs out there.  I like BeamChek ( spelling is correct) for residential and light industrial work.  Cheap at about $150 a copy!!

RE: Beam for Windows by Dymak

I'm an IT guy for Structural Engineering company.

Beam32 no longer supported and I need to set up a new server.

We have Multiframe / Microstran / SpaceGass all of which can do beam analysis, but for single beams in a house or small buildings, Beam32 is much quicker, because of its simplicity.

Engineers currently trialing BeamChek mentioned in this thread. colincaprini.com does NOT load.

Any other really simple beam analysis programs out there that I can try?

RE: Beam for Windows by Dymak

Ok, so it's http://www.colincaprani.com (not caprini)

Still keen for any more suggestions of other beam software.
