Software is our business, wood is our passion.

Wood uniquely combines the tradition and the future of the construction industry. It combines outstanding material properties, durability and ease of processing with the ecological advantages of a renewable resource with a negative C02 balance when sustainably harvested from local forests.

Dietrich’s was the first company to make design software specifically for the wood construction industry. In 1982, Josef Dietrich, a master of carpentry, developed the first programs for German carpenters to calculate roof shapes, compound angles and cuts. Today Dietrich’s is the largest provider of wood construction software in Europe and has grown steadily since entering the North American market in 2002.

Currently in Europe new buildings must meet high standards for energy efficiency through performance of materials and methods of construction. North American construction will soon have to meet similar high standards and your Dietrich’s software can be an integral part of your ability to design energy efficient, net-zero buildings.

Continuous, leading edge development has made Dietrich’s the most up-to-date wood construction software on the market.

  • Timber frame joinery demands very careful planning and detailed design, which is a task almost impossible to solve in 2D. For this reason, right from the very beginning Dietrich's programs have constructed the model in 3D.
    With the generated 3D model of the frame and its surrounding building component envelope, you have a detailed overview of the structure you are building and your clients can see exactly what they are going to get.

  • Pre-fabrication is not new, but the ability to work precisely has made the difference in the success.

    In 1929, Konrad Wachsmann built a prefabricated home for Albert Einstein near Potsdam, Germany. In the USA from 1941-46, Wachsmann and Walter Gropius manufactured the Packaged House in Massachusetts. In 1946, Celotex of California took over and formed the General Panel Corporation, which lasted until 1952. The reason given for the failure of this early prefabrication effort was that,

    “the facility’s equipment failed to provide the proper tolerance needed for the system to work, ultimately affecting output and, consequently, the bottom line."

    (Source: Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling by Barry Bergdoll and Peter Christensen)

    Precise CAD/CAM production data and documents, combined with accurate CNC equipment have eliminated this excuse for failure. Prefabrication is the way of the future for cost effective housing and commercial buildings.
