Simpson Strong-Tie Launches Enhanced Online Deck Planner Software

Simpson Strong-Tie has launched an enhanced online Deck Planner Software tool designed to help deck builders and homeowners quickly and easily design their dream deck. Featuring 3D software, design guides and an in-app user tutorial, the free web-based design center provides a suite of intuitive tools and resources for designing and building decks. The in-app tutorial was developed to guide users step-by-step through the custom design process, so they can select shapes, modify dimensions and choose from various deck board and railing options. The software also highlights the critical connections for building a strong, safe deck and recommends hardware based on any custom design, the company says. When the design process is over, a full output report is generated that includes a bill of materials for all lumber, decking, railing and hardware necessary to build the deck. http://www.strongtie.com/deckplanner
