BC Calc®

BC Calc® is now a web-based application available at  and can be used on Windows or Apple operating systems via Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome or Safari browsers as well as on iOS and Android tablets. An offline version is available to BC Connect® or registered BC Calc® users for use without an internet connection or in cases of limited connection availability. It can be downloaded once users have signed in to the application.

Performs engineering analysis to help our customers size beams, joists, columns, studs and tall walls for their building projects. It is simple to use, yet flexible enough to analyze a variety of common applications. The user enters the member geometry, adds loads, holes and other relevant data and then selects a product for analysis. The program helps the user identify which of Boise Cascade's engineered wood products meet the demands of the application.

After the analysis has been run, the user can create an easy-to-read PDF design report that clearly shows important span and load information as well as the analysis results.

The Next Generation of BC Calc Software

This next generation of BC Calc was redesigned from the ground up with a focus on productivity and expanded functionality. Existing users will note a similar, but enhanced user interface and experience that will allow them to easily transition to the new application. The same features from the desktop version are combined with new features exclusive to the web application.
