Please join us for dinner and a presentation/demonstration by Jay Johnson on Weyerhaeuser's Forte Software. Forte is their single member sizing software that sizes joists, beams, posts, columns, hip and valleys, rafters, etc. The designer can size the member for a specific spacing, depth, best economical solution and provide multiple solutions using Trus Joist Engineered Wood Products, commodity lumber or Glulams. The software is user friendly and Weyerhaeuser provides many options for on-line training and technical support.  Jay will also provide information on the Trus Joist product line and the solutions their products offer.
