CAD Cross-Section Properties Calculation Wizard


Cross-section properties are needed to perform a wide range of engineering calculations. Yet, it's a pain to calculate section properties in many popular CAD applications - you need to find the right macro, move co-ordinate system, and if the section has holes and islands you need to consolidate the regions.


SectionCalc© enables users to simultaneously calculate all vital section properties of any standard, custom, or built-up profile in any CAD with unprecedented ease, speed, and accuracy.

How does SectionCalc work?

Calculating section properties with SectionCalc is easy as 1, 2, and 3.

1. Save profile geometry of the section in CAD in DXF standard file format.

2. Start SectionCalc and simply load the DXF file.

3. See results in seconds.

Following section properties are simultaneously calculated and displayed:

Results can be saved in CSV standard format for report generation.

SectionCalc key Benefits

SectionCalc can be used on any computer running Vista, XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.

Disk requirement is less than 1 MB.
