The ARCHITECT’S FORMULATOR is the perfect tool for any Architect. This program contains over 400 formulas helpful for architect. ARCHITECT’S FORMULATOR combines all of the formulas from our Electrical, Carpentry and Plumbing Formulators. In addition, this product also includes Concrete and Excavations formulas, that perform calculations for excavating or filling soil, the concrete required for a job and the bricks required for a wall. The program also includes special formulas just for architect for concrete and steel design, parking area and sidewalk design and even swimming pool design, as well as basic formulas for wind load and wind overturning force. The 23 formulas just for architect’s included now are just the start of what we expect will grow to over 100 formulas in coming months.

The CARPENTRY section contains formulas that calculate the number of joists and studs required on a job. ARCHITECT’S FORMULATOR aids users to calculate the load on headers or the cost of hardwood flooring. There are even formulas to calculate the loads on walls and loads on beams. Formulas in the ELECTRICAL section calculate kilowatts, horsepower, efficiency, power factor, watts, amps, current, power, resistance, and voltage. This section includes formulas to calculate total resistance, capacitance, voltage drops, and transformer calculations.

The formulas in the PLUMBING section calculate areas of pipe walls and the weights of different pipes. ARCHITECT’S FORMULATOR is able to calculate the final temperature when two bodies of water are mixed. There are also formulas in this section to calculate the expansion of pipes, radiant heat and heat loss cooling requirements, head loss and fresh air in room requirements All formulas can be saved or E-mailed. The program also remembers favorites and recent formulas.

Ratings and Reviews

Great, but where are all the missing bits?


For what it does it seems great, however I am missing lots of things. 1) most of the calculations do not indicate the units I am supposed to enter, is the length feet, inches, yards etc. 2) electrical, I would love to see all the NEC tables, for example in the conduit size calc I Ned to be able to select size and cable type from the normal list (16gage THHN) the current calc only works if I know the pursue size of each cable (they are in the tables, why not use it) now I know NEC get updated every few years so if it cannot be include then wy not a new app? I would pay for it; conduit fill, box fill, all the tables from the standard.

Needs Refinement

Not a bad app, but it needs polishing. As is it contains several spelling errors. The formual definitions could be fleshed out a bit more...define each component of the formula more precisely, including which units are employed. For example, under the HVAC section, in Heat Loss, one of the items to enter is "Radiation Value". Is that U factor or R value? Not everyone who may use this app is thoroughly versed in every parameter required for a formula to work, but if they are defined in the app, the user can then know what information is needed or lacking more precisely. This app can be a teaching tool as well as for one who knows the formulas but wants an easy way to use them. I'd give it higher stars pending needed upgrades.

the worst of the worst


How anyone could screw up an idea this simple this badly, I have no idea. The vast majority of the formulae are of no use to practicing architects, but that hardly even matters because there are errors and inconsistencies everywhere. Many of the formulas don't even use units, rendering them completely useless. Those that do use units, use them inconsistently. Many words are misspelled, the grammar is poor, and the "formula definitions" are often so vague as to be laughable.

I wouldn't trust it to add two single-digit numbers. I deleted it within an hour of installing it.
