2D cross-sections and 3D illustrations
BuildDesk U helps you visualise the constructions by using clear 3D colour graphics and 2D sections. The sections are particularly useful when working with framed constructions.
BuildDesk U provides clear printouts that show the 3D colour illustration of the construction with the calculation results. You can choose to print the Condensation Risk Analysis results in summary or more detailed form. Results can also be saved and forwarded as PDF files.
