" I found ASDIP Retain several years ago. I needed it for a specific project. It was so user friendly and easy to use. I've used it many, many times since. I then tried the Foundation version and again it was perfect for my needs. I've now purchased the entire suite. Customer service is excellent and the software is up to date and very thorough. There are tutorial type emails sent out periodically which show exactly how to get the most out of the software. These are particularly helpful. It's not often I'm this pleased with a product but I'm a customer for life!

Chad Elliott, PE

" The software is very intuitive and helpful for the type of work we do. We are always using it for helping our clients with smaller sized walls, foundations, etc. The best part of the software is truly the support. Every time I have had a question about how to change a setting that seems hidden to me, support has been prompt and efficient. It is almost like they are sitting there with you and easily guide you to a quick solution. I just had to switch computers and I seemed to have misplaced my installation instructions. Support walked me through the whole process and took less than 5 minutes. Best customer support out there!

" I first purchased ASDIP suite at a previous employer to check other structural software analysis. It soon became my go to design software which I used on a near daily basis. The software suites are intuitive and produce meaningful data with only a few clicks. Now that I’ve started my own firm, ASDIP suite of software tools are a must have for efficient structural designing at a very competitive cost.

Dan Alexander, PE

" I’ve used Mr Encinas’ software for designing composite steel beams, and found it easy to use, surprisingly flexible (for a “fill in the blanks” interface), and best of all, largely self documenting. I’m an engineer who always struggles with documenting calculations owing to time constraints. Being able to print out a nicely-formatted output that reflects a classic hand-calculation approach is a boon. I highly recommend this product.

Regards, and thanks for a great software and the superlative customer support!

" I was using Enercalc’s retaining wall module for wall design. It was cumbersome and glitchy. I needed a change and found ASDIP retaining wall software and was immediately impressed. The interface is clean and easy to use. The input options are located in logical tabs and provide me with all of the options that I need. I had one issue using the program due to my computer missing a windows install file, and Javier quickly helped me solve this. The install file was not related to the ASDIP software. Great software and even better support!!

Travis Rodriguez, PE

Simi Valley, California


"I have been using ASDIP products (steel, retaining wall, and foundation) for a little over 1 year, and I must say I am overly impressed!
Software is intuitive and extremely EASY to use and learn. I have used it for design and submitted the brief report to the sealing engineer, and not one comment was issued.
Fantastic software and would recommend it to all practicing engineers out there. Keep up the great work!

" ASDIP offers an excellent suite of structural engineering software modules for a price individuals and small businesses can actually afford.

Stephen Walters

Lancaster, Pennsylvania


" I have been using ASDIP software for some 3 years and consider the software to be most detailed, efficient, accurate and easy to use design software available for concrete and steel design and detailing. The integrated active graphic modules provide excellent visual design results for load combinations for shear and moments and graphical construction details. The condense and detailed reports provides the designer a most complete documentation of design calculations and code review, and is an excellent source when design calculation submittals are required. I am very satisfied with ASDIP software.

David R. Cassara, PE

" I’ve been using SAP2000 for a while to design continuous concrete beams, but have never been happy with all the work it takes to produce a decent easy to read report (specially for old-fashion town engineers). The reports that ASDIP CONCRETE generates couldn’t be any better. They beautifully show all the math, the equations, code references and load combinations. What I like the most is the reinforcement detailing. I only got the ASDIP Concrete module and now I’m considering buying the rest.

" The ASDIP structural engineering program suites are intuitive and well thought out software products.  I routinely use the steel, concrete and retaining suites in the design of coastal structures. The presentation, graphics and data input interactive are straightforward and logically presented.  Regular updates are provided which address comments from users and continually improve the scope and application of the software. Customer support is excellent and the value of the product relative to the cost of the software is one of the best I have come across in the engineering software field.  The author also provides design approach blogs on a regular basis which demonstrates his commitment to the product and his clientele.  I highly recommend ASDIP software to other structural engineers.

Robert Cutcher, PE

" We use it as an architectural tool, allowing us to model design concepts ahead of the structural engineers, who we find very conservative and unexcited about new design concepts. ASDIP allows us to say “Of course it is going to work, see”. Generally, our structural folks use an older tool but they have all been impressed by ASDIP and the clear reports. Your customer service is without equal and has certainly made my job easier.

Clyde McMorrow, AIA

San Jose, California


" I like the output because is SUPER well explained, easy to follow and the software does what I don’t have time to do, an excellent calculation report. Also, the software is very stable. I love MKS units included, makes me feel like fish in water.

Felipe Gallegos, MSE

"  I had been having some challenges with my computer due to some registry issues and i had a pressing deadline approaching regarding a retaining wall design for a client. I contacted Javier multiple times in an effort to figure out why the program was not launching on my computer as before. He was patient, kind and calm as he communicated with me late into the night & throughout the next day until the problem was resolved. I can say with confidence that not only Javier is knowledgeable technically, but he has a very pleasant demeanor as he offered prompt service to suit my needs.

Sabrina Urbano, PE

" This structural design software is definitely a suite of very useful and practical tools for the design of concrete and steel elements. I have been able to use these tools and check the results with many hand calculations and spreadsheets. The results are simply fantastic. I’m currently working with the ASDIP software in some of our engineering projects, and I’m satisfied with the quick and reliable results.

Isaac Salazar Moreno, M.Sc

IASM Ingeniería

" The software is incredibly straight forward and easy to use. Very detailed so that one is not scratching their head trying to figure out what the calculations are doing in reference to the AISC and ACI standards. I especially found the method options for design of column base plates and anchorage to concrete under ACI 318, along with the seismic provision option, to be very flexible in its scope of design. Also, the ASDIP blog posts on seismic design of anchor rods helped my understanding of application of the over-strength factor requirement in ACI 318 Chapter 17. The Structural Steel Design module of ASDIP Structural Software is a very capable design tool.

Lawrence Lewis, PE

Quick Tanks Inc.

" I very much liked your Retaining Wall software. I designed a Counterfort Wall with a surcharge; and was able to complete the design in a short time. The input was friendly and progressed nicely through the design. I was able to do this after a short tutorial review by ASDIP and figuring out the software on my own. I reviewed the design results as I progressed and went back and revised design input as needed. Resulting Design calculations were easy to follow and well organized. I do highly recommend the ASDIP Structural Engineering Software.

Jon Allen, PE

Millcreek Engineering

" Your software is awesome! For me, it’s the best software especially ASDIP FOUNDATION. I’ve tried other software but ASDIP overcomes all of them. The detailed calculation on the output, the user-friendly GUI, ASDIP is the best.

Ruel Paler, PE

R2P Construction Services

San Mateo, Rizal, Philippines


" In March of this year, I started using ASDIP. From years of using different software and developing my custom solutions, I have to admit that I was a little skeptical. I bought a year lease for all the modules. The software is straightforward to use, different options in terms of reporting, and precisely what I am looking for in terms of submitting calculations and designing. But the best feature of the software is customer support, always fast responses to questions and revisions to the software if needed, and with a great attitude. Glad I decided to try the software, and without a doubt, I recommend ASDIP. Keep up the excellent work.

Augusto Poitevin, Ph.D., PE, SI

" I have used the ASDIP structural engineering full package suite for several months and it’s clearly the best structural engineering software in my library. The software is straight forward, up-to-date, reliable, and the customer service is prompt. My Civil/Structural Engineering firm of 30 years in Washington State is licensed in all 50 States and, because I can handle complex problems faster and more reliably, the scope and size of my average project has increased.

" I am very pleased with my purchase of the ASDIP SUITE. I am a licensed engineer with a master’s degree in structures, and more than 20 years of experience. I’ve been looking for years for a design program with an iterative base that would allow me to make calculations in real time and at the same time see the computations to arrive at safe design values. I have tried many software on the market and despite being good, they did not provide me with the security because their reports went directly to the results. ASDIP reports are basically a university class that shows you the reference, including the formula used and the code where it came from. To all this I must add that the price is absolutely accessible and the assistance service by Eng. Encinas is super professional. It is not about a sale and farewell, but a constant, fast assistance in which I have clarified my doubts instantly.

" Javier was very helpful and quick to respond when I contacted ASDIP support using the chat feature on their website. I needed help getting the ASDIP license set up after getting a new computer, and Javier knew exactly how to help and quickly got ASDIP working for me. I’ve also talked to Javier previously about questions I had regarding design calculations and code references, and he has been extremely knowledgeable and helpful with that as well. Of all the similar software I have used, ASDIP has the best tech/design support I’ve received!
