Layup is an ArchiCAD add-on (available for most recent versions) developed to aid specifiers in the fast and simple production of joist and rafter layouts. It is one of the integral design components of the Superior Performance Flooring System, FLOORSUITE. Once the layout is drawn up a simple click of the mouse will label, calculate and produce a schedule of quantities to be used by merchants making ordering and delivery of components a breeze.
