ShapeBook 2009 is the ultimate structural and miscellaneous steel estimating and quick reference software for steel industry professionals. ShapeBook 2009 is based on the AISC Steel Construction Manual 13th Edition plus the addition of large pipe sizes, small bar size materials, plate, flat bar, round bar, and square bar in US imperial and metric units. This new release of ShapeBook 2009 with 2D3DSteel 2009 continues the 9 year legacy of the 5 star award winning ShapeBook with 2D3DSteel software.

If you are looking for an affordable solution for estimating steel and coatings, look no further. The new ShapeBook 2009 software is much more than just a steel shape reference. It now includes a powerful estimating tool for steel, and coatings. The new "Calculator Material List" extends the weight, surface area, and pricing for all of the items in your "Calculator Material List".

The "Calculator Material List" can be easily revised and manipulated. List items can be re-priced, inserted, deleted, sorted, or dragged to new locations. The lists can be saved to files on your hard drive and loaded back into ShapeBook or imported into spreadsheet or database software. The "Print Calc List" command prints the list with a custom title, date, page numbers, line numbers, and includes column and row outlines. The lists can be used as an advanced bill of materials if needed. Click on the "ShapeBook 2009 with 2D3DSteel 2009" link above for more details.

The South Fork Technologies Feet and Inch Engineering Tools is an integrated library of programs for calculating in feet and inches or metric format on a HP48G, HP48G+, HP48GX, HP49G, HP49G+ Calculator. These programs enable you to add, subtract, multiply, and divide dimensions. You can calculate dimensions using the trigonometry tools for right triangles, oblique triangles, circular segments and much more, all in feet and inches. When working with the right triangle tools you just set your angle and enter a side you know and hit the button for the side you want and it is displayed. Values on the stack from previous calculations are always preserved so you can flow through a group of triangle calculations accumulating the results with ease. This software provides an essential set of integrated tools for steel detailers, engineers, and contractors. This software allows the user to solve simple or complex dimensional geometry in feet and inches without working with decimal equivalents. You can store all of the critical angles and dimensions for any project in your calculator or in a file on your personal computer. The data can be loaded back into your calculator whenever you need it.
