Stay Informed with the Javelin Informant

Weyerhaeuser Software Support and Training are pleased to bring you the Javelin Informant, our quarterly e-newsletter especially designed for our Javelin software users. Users can now read up on the latest software tips and tricks, and also stay current on upcoming Javelin training webinars being provided by our staff of software trainers. These newsletters are produced each quarter based on the most relevant topics of the day along with feedback from the actual end-users themselves!

In a matter of minutes, readers can pick out valuable lessons for using Javelin to their advantage during the drawing process.  The goal of the Javelin Informant is two-fold. We want to bring awareness to what Javelin software can do in quick digestible chunks, while also bringing increased efficiency to our user base.  We realize that as business picks up for our dealers, that can constrain the time allowed for our users continued education.  That is why we believe the Javelin Informant is such a valuable tool for getting information into their hands without slowing up their production time.

Using Load Path Labels

In the latest Q1/Q2 issue, we featured some quick how-to instruction such as specifying Capping Height for Beams, How to use Solid Walls to Reduce File Size, or Using Load Path Labels (example shown above). Click here to view the latest issue of the Javelin Informant.
