Automatically generates trusses by combining values of 35 parameters (geometrical, mechanical, support and loads) and displays the influence of each of them in their structural behaviour (reactions, forces, stresses and displacements).

When the user changes the value of any parameter the truss is updated and the system automatically recalculates and dynamically presents the results. This enables the optimization of structural design, determining the values that produce minimum forces, stresses, deflections and self-weight of the structure.
