What's New

You can now export your work to print it and share it with others! This release is a big milestone for us, and it is the first step towards a more unified platform that will allow you to collaborate better with others.

• NEW: Tap on the new External Link button (right next to the Settings icon) in the top-right corner of the design view to export and generate a link that you can share with others! You can also open the link directly in Safari, where you can print or save the document as a PDF. When you open the link in a browser, it opens up an interactive website that behaves similarly to the mobile app: You can tap on loads to select them and get more details, and you can also tap on the diagrams to obtain specific values.

App Description

Analyze structural beams quickly. Design visually and obtain engineering results, graphs, and equations seamlessly.

Whether you are in mechanical, civil, or structural engineering, unleash the full extent of practical Mechanics of Materials tools from day 1 as you are learning them, or come back and reference them any time in the future.

Simply place loads and supports on the beam, and select or customize any shape from the built-in library. Immediately see how the beam bends in response to the applied conditions. Deflection, internal stresses, and other results are automatically updated.
