Calculated Industries recently introduced the Construction Master EZ app for Android devices helping remove the construction math hurdle for many trade professionals and DIYs.
The new app uses forms to calculate advanced construction math problems. Users enter inputs and instantly see outputs, removing the guesswork on which keys to press because the forms guide users through it.
The app enables contractors to calculate rafter dimensions, complete stair layouts, rake wall inputs and more. To determine cuts for rake walls or stairwell openings, a user launches the app, selects the job function they need, enters available measurements, and the app calculates related dimension values for accurate and faster building.
EZ app also includes the ability to calculate material requirements for most common construction items. Estimators can determine material requirements and volume needs so they can order exactly what they need. With unit costs they can figure out total material costs and budget.
In addition to linear dimensions, contractors can determine items requiring trigonometric math as well. You can define circles, arcs and volumes of columns and cones to get the correct layout, order enough material and build accurately to the design.
EZ can also determine crown molding cut angles. Users input the number of corners or sides involved in their layout, then enter the spring angle. The app shows the miter angle, bevel angle and the corner angle needed for installations.
