How Module Presets Work
ClearCalcs includes helpful preset templates for our modules (ex. beams) in order to save time entering common default properties. All presets use the standard 'beam' module and FEA analysis, however each preset will adopt different defaults for inputs such as loads, spacing, and restraints based on what's common in the building standard specified.
While these presets are designed to save time, it is important to note that the defaults are only general and may not cover every scenario. It is important for engineers to check each module to ensure the defaults adopted are correct for the project being worked on (for example - wind factors).
