The properties of all elements in the structure can be determined and simulated to provide an holistic appraisal of the potential forces in the structure. Special Structures Lab AnalysisSection sizes for structural members, cable sizes, baseplate design and fabric properties can all be simulated and applied to the project.

Connections can be specified as fixed or pinned, and allowed a range of degrees of freedom to move or not as the software engineer specifies.

Deflections in the loaded form can be measured accurately and displayed as an aide to final design.
