Default Newbie and Example DEMOLFTW.prj

Hello
I have recently purchased the program to assist in assessing beam sizes for building work particularly lofts prior to getting full plans.

I have been trying to work through DEMOLFTW.prj in detail so that I fully understand every aspect of it but found the loading on "Partition support beam r/o s/c" difficult to visualise.

To help with this I need a sketch of the beam layout for DEMOLFTW.prj as I am finding some of the loading figures difficult without a clear overall sketch.

I appreciate that normally the plans go with the calculations but a sketch for the example would be helpful and I cannot find one anywhere in the manual or the program.

Thanks Bobtec.

Does this help? It's a scan of a c.1992 leaflet: back then SuperBeam was a DOS program and you could use the User Text Page option in conjunction with DOS graphic characters to produce diagrams like this - but only if you had a lot of patience!

From a quick look, it's almost identical to the current DemoLftW project file, save that the size of beam in front of the chimney breasts has changed.
