Just playing with some code. You think this can be useful? What calculators you wish you had as a fabricator or steel detailer?
Please note that this is a test version of the calculator, which means it’s still a work in progress and we’ll be making improvements and adding features in the future. It is not intended for use in a production environment, and we cannot guarantee the accuracy or reliability of the results. Use of the Steel Takeoff Calculator is at your own risk.
Currently, the Steel Takeoff Calculator only supports three wide flange shapes: W8X18, W10X22, and W12X26. However, we plan to expand the available options in the future based on user feedback.
Using the Steel Takeoff Calculator is easy: simply select the shape of the steel pieces you need from the dropdown menu, enter the length and quantity, and click “Calculate”. The calculator will then compute the total weight and cost of the materials, taking into account the dimensions and weight per foot of the selected steel shape.
The Steel Takeoff Calculator can save you a lot of time and hassle by eliminating the need to manually calculate the materials needed for your project. It’s a handy tool for anyone working with steel in the construction industry, whether you’re an engineer, a contractor, or a DIY enthusiast.
We hope you’ll give the Steel Takeoff Calculator a try and let us know what you think. We welcome your feedback and suggestions for improvements, as we continue to develop and refine this tool.
