Whether you’re an architect, engineer or design professional sizing joists, beams, posts or studs, ForteWEB™ software performs member calculations and identifies solutions for the conditions and geometry you specify. Size members for a specific spacing, depth or the best economical fit.
ForteWEB is the next generation of our member sizing software available as a web-based application. ForteWEB can do everything you would expect from a member sizing software and more. We invite you to give it a try and size it up for yourself!
NOTICE: A load transfer issue has been identified with linked loads from vertical members in the current version of ForteWEB. Please review the details of this issue in software advisory (WSA#: 2002a).

FEATURES & BENEFITS
Intuitive user interface and design workflows – ForteWEB software is designed to be used right away with practically no learning curve.
Balance cost and performance using the TJ-Pro™ Rating System — the solutions list provides a view into product combinations that can save money while delivering on-floor performance expectations.
Loading assistance for complex conditions – easily calculate and apply loads on one tab using a variety of tools.
Size engineered wood and dimension lumber in one tool – compare design results and select the most effective solution.
Address field issues on site – use the joist and beam hole analysis or the TJI® notched flange analysis to determine if an issue at the jobsite will work without a modification.
Integration with BIM solutions — users’ modeling and designing structures using Autodesk® Revit® software will now have the ability to design Trus Joist® products using the MWF Pro Wood Revit® extension from StrucSoft Solutions. Visit StrucSoft Solutions for more information.
We provide a software development kit (SDK) to software developers looking to enhance their software to export floor, wall, and roof members to the ForteWEB application for analysis. This allows your customers to skip remodeling spans, supports, and loads in Forte and instead send these calculations to Forte with all the necessary information pre-populated.
