residential structural analysis design software

Residential Design, made Easy.

Design software for structural engineers and architects.

SkyCiv Structural Analysis and Design software is focused on being fast, easy and accurate. This supports the residential and home industry, as being able to turn designs around quickly is critical to meeting your client's needs.

SkyCiv helps by supporting all necessary analysis and design needs. This includes all aspects of home design, including beams, columns, plates, foundations, wind/snow loads, retaining walls and much more..

Integrations with Revit and other software also helps engineers work faster and easier, saving users having to rebuild models that already exist.

What's Possible?

Features that will accelerate your residential structure's design
Integrated Section Properties

SkyCiv Wood analysis

Fully Customizable and Integrated Section Properties

Use shapes from a variety of databases, or create your own custom ones from a combination of shapes. Import complex DXF drawings of custom sections for analysis as well. The Section Builder will find all the section's properties using a FEA of the section. Every section can be used for 3D modeling and analysis through the Structural 3D integration.

Integrated Design Module with Exportable and Detailed Design Reports

When your structural model is complete, import the analytical results into the Member Design module to run the design checks in accordance with the relevant code. E.g., NDS 2018, AISI S100-12, etc.

The design module will present the results clearly and effectively, while offering individual member hand calculations. These reports depict hand-calc walkthroughs with code references, which serve great as deliverables on your project or for backchecking -- eliminate that blackbox!
