API Credits

Every SkyCiv user has a maximum number of API credits available, based on their account level. Users can check their usage at any time by visiting their account activity page.

Different functions use a different number of API credits, based on their functionality. Typically, API calls only cost if a calculation or computation is being performed (i.e. FEM analysis, member design checks, wind load calculations). Below is a list of the functions and how many API credits they cost to run.
