Discover key features of SkyCiv Truss and Frame

SkyCiv Truss and Frame

Full hand calculations

SkyCiv 2D Truss also comes with full hand calculation features - which clearly show the step-by-step calculations for both the method of joints and the method of sections. This interactive learning module helps students follow the hand calculations of how to solve a truss:

  • Step 1: Model your truss in S3D.
  • Step 2: Click "Solve" to transition to the results section.
  • Step 3: Click the "Truss Hand Calcs" button highlighted in the image.
  • Step 4: A pop up will come up with the hand calculations.

SkyCiv 2D Truss

  • Simplified 2D truss analysis software
  • The SkyCiv Truss Software can add 10,000 members, supports, and loads compared to the Free Truss Calculator which is limited
  • Fixities are set as pin connections (FFFFRR) for proper truss behavior
  • Add as many supports and loads as you like, SkyCiv Truss can solve in
  • The reactions at each support are solved and displayed in the Free Body Diagram (FBD)
  • Clean internal axial force results in a fast and neat diagram for use in your assignments or to check your results!

SkyCiv 2D Frame

  • Simplified 2D frame analysis software
  • The SkyCiv Frame Software can add 10,000 members, supports, and loads compared to the Free Tool which is limited software
  • Fixities are set as fixed frames (FFFFFF)
  • Results for: Reactions at supports, bending moment, shear and axial forces
  • For all other results, users can use SkyCiv Structural 3D which comes with all subscriptions
  • Add cross-section properties using SkyCiv Section Builder
  • Fast and neat diagrams will be produced for use in your assignments or to check your results

Save, load and share your files

Truss systems and frames can often take a long time to set up. Continually entering the same structure every time you want to test it is a pain. That's why the SkyCiv Truss and Frame software allows you to save and load from your cloud storage.

Since our software is on the cloud, you can also share and collaborate on models with your team in real-time. Work as a team, or across multiple devices, with SkyCiv's cloud truss and frame analysis software.

SkyCiv KipCon testimonial
"The ease of use and the presentation of the results are both awesome.
I have had ongoing interaction with the support team and
everyone is excellent!"
Mitch Frumkin, CEO of Kipcon
SkyCiv TexasAM University Software Testomonial
It is used for various civil and mechanical engineering courses and the students
love it. We are happy with the continuous updates to SkyCiv as well,
highly recommended.
