Weyerhaeuser Javelin Design Software
When you're ready to upgrade your home-design software, consider this sophisticated lumber-sizing program that was originally designed for commercial lumber dealers and architects. Javelin provides a fast, easy, and extremely accurate way to specify engineered lumber and sawn lumber for new construction and remodeling projects. You can easily convert basic blueprints into detailed plans showing the precise location and size of every header, wall stud, roof rafter, and floor and ceiling joist. The 3-D modeling software also tracks vertical loads, ensuring that right-sized lumber is used to support the structure. Javelin is part of the Modus Suite, which includes Forte single-member sizing software, Stellar fabrication software, and Estima specification services.
