ForTen 2.1.2 Info

ForTen ® 2.1.2  is ...
the first commercial software specifically developed to calculate and model tensile and fabric structures.
Forten® is both a geometrical and mathematical modeler that permits to you to obtain the exact building shape, starting from :
  For the first time you'll have the total control, since a great design problem was not to know the final result until this kind of structure was completely realized: now it's possible to have the sharp view of a real time 3D geometry that can be manipulated inside your preferred CAD/Modeling software.   Forten can share files with the most many CAD/CDRS platforms, having the ability to exchange data in:
DXF Format (.dxf)
Autodesk 3D Studio ASCII format (.asc)

Forten® 2.1.2 Main Features:   1. Hi-speed math kernel
2. Hi-speed drawing engine
3. No complexity mesh and joints limitations
4. MDI (Multiple Document Interface) based
5. Graphical real-time stress analizer
6. Graphical real-time contour lines analizer
7. Built-in Renderer (Phong Mode supported)
8. Object-snap tools for interactive editing
9. Non linear math solver module (FortCalc®)

Limits ...
The only limits to the size of the mesh that forten can build depend on the avalaible machine memory.   Forten® 2.1.2 works well on all computers with windows 3.1 / win 95 / Nt .
