Masonry Software
& Analysis

Be creative and effective with your design. These programs assist in the designing stages so you can calculate the best dimensions and material for the most cost-effective structure. You can interchange materials for unique looks and quick design changes. Contact the company representative for trials and options for access.

 

Masonry iQ: The leading design tool for masonry, Masonry iQ allows architects to improve their workflow while creating 3D models with masonry-specific wall types, custom bond patterns, and computer analysis of wall geometry that includes corner bonding. Architects can browse and select an actual product from real-world block producers, placing their choices directly into the design and having the software do all the calculations, all while staying inside of Revit. 

 

Direct Design Software: This unique software makes a daunting design job much easier. Take an idea from concept...to blueprint...to reality in just minutes, perfectly to codes and standards. Simply enter a few input criteria, specify the plan layout and opening locations, and the software does the rest.
