How to Create an Engineered Wood Material


In RISA-3D and RISAFloor, the entire NDS species list is available as well as glulam materials but you may need to design a wood product that is not available in the program.

You can create any wood material that is not part of the default wood materials available in RISA-3D or RISAFloor by opening the Custom Wood Species database found on the Advanced tab.

To create a new wood species, simply click "New" and enter the properties of the new wood species.
