ProfileCALC is a professional, easy-to-use profile weight, surface area & cost estimation system designed for use by engineers, contractors, structure designers, quantity surveyors. The app allows you to quickly create estimations, calculations & reports for steel or wood frame structures. It can also be used to calculate the materials for roof trusses, portal frames, columns, beams, gates, fences, carports, balustrades and lots more!
Calculate & quantify steel, wood & other profiles & sections in just 3 simple steps!
STEP 1 – MATERIAL TEMPLATES:
Setup a new custom material template with pricing related to your area, or use one of the existing material templates shipped with the app.
STEP 2 – PROFILE CALCULATION:
The next step is to enter the dimensions of all profiles required for your project and save them to a file with custom description for each profile.
STEP 3 – ENTER PROJECT DATA:
Once all the profile calculations is saved to your project file successfully, the final step is to generate a report with all quantities & costs that can be exported / shared as an HTML table, CSV data for excel spreadsheet or DOC for printing.
Use ProfileCALC to calculate the weight, surface area & estimated material cost of:
• Steel or wood framed structures (Any custom material can be setup)
• Steel frameworks for portal frames, warehouses & other metal frame buildings
• Roof truss systems, carports (Steel, wood or other material)
• Staircase framing & Balustrades
• Gates & Fences
• Pipes & plumbing
• Bespoke furniture
• Lots more! (Anything that uses profiles / sections common in the building industry.)
Supported Profiles / Sections (Calculate Metal / Steel weight or any custom material)
• Rectangular / Square tubing (SHS , RHS)
• Solid rectangular / Square sections (Columns, Beams, Flat bars, Sheeting etc.)
• L-profiles, Equal & un-equal leg angles
• U-profiles / Channels
• Lipped Channels
• I-profiles / H-profiles / T-profiles
• Round hollow sections / Pipes (CHS)
• Solid round bars & Dowels
• Hexagon Bars
Materials & density
The app ships with various metals & other materials commonly used in the construction industry for example: Mild Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminium, Copper, Cast Iron, Tin, Zinc, Soft Wood (Structural Pine), Hard Wood (Meranti), Concrete & uPVC.
You can also add an unlimited amount of custom materials with custom densities & pricing. Material price can be specified by bulk volume (m³) or weight (kg).
ProfileCALC – Main Functionality
• Calculate profile surface area (For protective coating / treatment / painting etc.)
• Calculate profile weight from specified length (Metal, steel, wood & more!)
• Calculate profile length from specified weight
• Specify the number of pieces required of each profile length (Calculations are shown separately)
• Create cost estimations (Specify local price of material by weight or volume)
• Save all calculations to a file - Estimate the total cost of a structure / framework
• ProfileCALC – Metal / Steel calculator currently works with metric units only. (Support for Imperial units to be implemented in future version)
• Create profile (metal, steel, other) weight, surface area & cost estimates quickly and easily
• A user-friendly interface designed with ease-of-use as a top priority
• Save & share results in a report as individual projects
• Convenience – Export data to HTML, CSV or DOC
• Offline - Works 100% offline, no internet connection required!
• Efficient building profile calculations in an easy-to-use single suite on any mobile device.
