Printing the Load Calculations

  •   Press this button to print the loads. If you have recently calculated the loads and not made any changes to your design, you can use this button to save time during the printing process. Otherwise, use the button.

  •   Press this button to run the Calculate Building Load Totals command, then print the loads. Use this button when you have made changes to your design since the last time you ran a calculation.

    Both buttons will create an HTML file and display it in your default web browser. You can then print the load calculations using the standard print function of your web browser.

Some of the pages are very wide. You may need to change the page setup to print in landscape mode for everything to fit on the page.
