Structural Calculations Framework — Free, Open and Lightweight Design
WINDOWS 10 APP
We designed SCaFFOLD to make writing and using engineering calculations as easy and enjoyable as possible, based on the following aims:
Provide an open source and lightweight framework for calculations enabling them to be run in a wide range of environments, including stand-alone apps for different operating systems and as plug-ins for popular packages.
Make it easy for engineers to write and share calculations without having to understand user interfaces or software architecture.
Enable clear output from the calculations to allow understanding and checking of the calculations. LaTeX is used for type setting the mathematical formulae, providing professional quality output to make understanding and checking the calculations a pleasure.
The core framework and the calculations themselves have been written for .NET, with no dependency on specific operating system libraries. There are several client applications and plug-ins being developed that work on specific platforms. The download available here is the Windows 10 app — iOS and Android apps are planned for release shortly.

The core SCaFFOLD framework, the Windows app and a selection of calculations are an open source project. The code can be found on our Github site Magma Works.
The SCaFFOLD Windows app has been written and tested on Windows 10. Any PC running Windows 10 should be capable of running it.
Current download is v.0.4.1
We recommend the following minimum requirements:
