Only Metal Materials for Post Frame

SmartBuild Lite offers the core features of our industry-leading Post Frame software for automating bids, yet the output is limited to metal panels, trim, and accessories.

Using the same simple, on-screen graphic design process as the original, SmartBuild Lite automatically generates a 3D model, cut lists, material lists, pricing, and shop drawings.

Designed specifically for Metal Manufacturers, SB Lite reduces takeoff time to about 5 minutes and virtually eliminates the errors inherent to working by hand.

SmartBuild Systems

In our original software, users are guided through a simple, menu-driven set of prompts for designing any custom structure. As each new variable is entered, a real-time 3D model shows exactly what the building looks like in shell or frame view. Best of all, SmartBuild automatically updates the framing, sheathing and trim cut lists, material lists, pricing, and drawings with every change to the design.
