GraphiCalc Elements

Next-generation software for design calculations

GrafiCalc Elements

GrafiCalc® Elements is groundbreaking software that works with geometry in the same way as spreadsheets work with numbers. It allows users to associate geometry and calculations in the same worksheet so that change in one updates the other automatically.

This is possible because GrafiCalc Elements combines the disciplines of 2D parametric sketching and automated "smart" graphical calculations in a single application that enables users to solve a wide range of design challenges with unprecedented ease, speed, and accuracy while making informed decisions.

GrafiCalc Elements can be used standalone as well as in conjunction with Microsoft Office and all popular CAD applications on any computer running Vista, XP, Windows 7 or Windows 8. More...

GrafiCalc Elements Key Benefits

  • Use standalone for day-to-day design calculations
  • Use as companion to extend Excel and CAD capabilities
  • Perform interactive 'what-if' analysis of design options
  • Create, manage, and reuse intellectual property

GrafiCalc Elements Key Features

GrafiCalc Elements offers a collection of facilities that have been enhanced over several years to incorporate latest computing technology and valuable inputs from users.

  • Print drawing directly from GrafiCalc Elements
  • Cut, copy, and paste information from GrafiCalc Elements to Windows clipboard
  • Cut, copy, and paste information from Windows clipboard into GrafiCalc Elements
  • Windows standard 2-way Dynamic data exchange (DDE)

Sketching tools

Constraint manager: GrafiCalc Elements includes an ultra-fast constraint manager especially tailored for function modeling. Initial geometry can be entered within GrafiCalc Elements as well as imported from any DXF compliant CAD software using the built-in 2-way automatic translator.

Geometry definition tools: Line, Circle, Arc, Poly Line, Closed Boundary. Initial geometry can also be imported from any DXF compliant CAD software.

Constraint tools: Free point, Concentric, Centroid, Endpoint, Proportional, Tangent, Intersection, Virtual Intersection, On-Entity/Slider, Parallel, Perpendicular, and at a fixed angle with respect to another line.

Automatic Constraint snapping facility: GrafiCalc Elements includes an automatic constraint inference facility which, when turned on, allows you to snap automatically to center, endpoints, tangents, centroid, and on-geometry automatically. Lines snap automatically to horizontal and vertical.

Text tool: Allows entering notes and annotations. Use all available fonts in your computer.

View manipulation tools: Pan, Zoom, Zoom by 2X, Zoom by .5X, Zoom to fit, Show paper boundary.

Automatic measurements

GrafiCalc Elements incorporates linear, radial, and angular dimensions that can be constrained to measure any aspect of the flexible model. The measurements are updated automatically as design intents are altered. The measurements can be directly included in calculations setup in GrafiCalc Elements Formula bar.

Calculations facilities

Formula Bar: GrafiCalc Elements incorporates a 'point and click' type Formula bar that is used to establish bi-directional association between geometry, dimension, empirical values, and calculations.

Built-in calculation functions: GrafiCalc Elements includes a library of 88 built-in functions to setup in the Formula bar and the Programmable calculator.
