Hello,

 

Has anyone ever used this company for beam calculations?

They have a pretty handy shear and moment calculator and diagram generator.  Their pro version also calculates deflections etc. and it's $20/year.

Hello,

 

I went ahead and signed up for a 1 year access to their pro version for $20.  It seems to work pretty well.  Saving the file out to a printer friendly format could be a little better - the image comes out somewhat small - it would be better to break it up across a few pages.  Having said that, this will save me a lot time having to create diagrams and run stress and deflection values.  I'll follow up after I try it out some more.
