ShapeBuilder is a tool for doing a wide variety of structural engineering tasks related to shapes and their properties. Originally this tool calculated basic section properties for plane areas; properties like area, moment of inertia, section modulus, and more. The “Big Idea” for ShapeBuilder is that you can quickly determine the structural section properties of a complex built-up or cut-down cross section. ShapeBuilder also incorporates many additional features including stress analysis, composite properties, reinforced concrete capacity analysis, and more. ShapeBuilder is also the tool for IES shape database customization. Get ShapeBuilder and try it for yourself to see what it’s all about!

ShapesBuilder is a tool for doing a wide variety of structural engineering tasks related to shapes and their properties. Version History: Version 1.5 – Added a tab at the top of the program to allow the user to select the Shape Created and then it will calculate properties of the created shape and generate a tab. Version 1.4 – Added a program upgrade notification and bug fix regarding an issue where properties would not calculate correctly. Version 1.3 – Changed the way properties are calculated. Old versions of shapes will need to be re-created to use new version of the program. Version 1.2 – Added the ability to place in variables numbers of results to be calculated. This will be used for later iterations of the shape. Version 1.1 – Changed the way the geometry is calculated to prevent crashes with older PC versions.

=========================================== ShapeBuilder is a powerful shape design program for creating, viewing, and analyzing 3D shapes. ShapeBuilder was developed to meet the needs of the structural engineering profession. ShapeBuilder’s graphical user interface, ease of use, and powerful set of features, including section properties and stress analysis, make it an ideal tool for all structural engineers. With standard shapes like T-sections, U-sections, and square and rectangular tubes, ShapeBuilder calculates and displays basic sections properties, such as area, moment of inertia, section modulus, and more. Any cross section shape can be created by using the cutting planes functions or by using a computer-optimized solid-modeling utility. ShapeBuilder also features a data base capability. You can create your own shape database to store your own custom shapes, and to use your own shapes in calculations. You can also edit your own shapes using the ShapeBuilder Composing and Editing software. A shape library provides the capability to display and compute the cross section properties of a custom shape, simply by name. ShapeBuilder Uses: ========================== ShapeBuilder is suitable for use in a wide variety of engineering applications. It is very useful in analyzing and solving structural problems. Engineers can use ShapeBuilder to: – create custom complex shapes – analyze complex shapes – perform simple stress calculations on complex shapes – quickly create and find shapes in a shape library – find properties of a cross section – view shapes and cross sections – create and view animations of cross sections – transfer a section’s properties to another shape – determine the effects of embedded reinforcement on a section’s properties Comparing ShapeBuilder to other tools: ============================================================ ShapeBuilder has many advantages over other structural analysis tools. ShapeBuilder’s automatic section properties calculations are a major advantage over other tools. ShapeBuilder also offers built-in section properties, stress analysis, and embedded reinforcement. It can read and import shape files created by QuickShip. Many CAD programs include features similar to ShapeBuilder. ShapeBuilder can read and import many of them, and is more powerful than many of them. ShapeBuilder Limitations: ========================== Some sections cannot be analyzed with ShapeBuilder. If your section is not included in the ShapeBuilder section properties list, but you need to analyze it, you can use the “Modify Section Properties” feature to add it. Some of the material properties in ShapeBuilder are
Input a geometry to get the properties of the section. It can be a polygonal, spline or 3D object. Select the kind of section you are interested in. It can be a general section, a beam, a bar, a column, a hinge, or even a plane area You will get properties calculated including section properties, section properties or composite properties. You can also select which properties you are interested in calculating. Once you have a result, you can “Flatten” it down to a single line (for example, a bar or column section on a beam). How-To: A number of options are on the “Options” tab of the “Profile Properties” dialog box. For example: As you change the various option settings you will see the tab of the “options” dialog box change to reflect what you have chosen. So, to choose a general section, choose “General Section” and then the properties of interest will be displayed. Here’s a link to a PDF file that has a description of the very basics of ShapeBuilder.
