Lunch & Learn Webinars

On the third Tuesday of each month, SPIDA offers a free, one-hour long webinar to all existing and prospective SPIDACalc users. SPIDA product specialists lead the webinars and highlight a feature of our structure analysis software to demonstrate various aspects of SPIDACalc functionality and usability. Lunch and Learns are a great way to see SPIDACalc in action, keep up with the latest product features, and ask questions!

User Manuals

SPIDACalc and SPIDAMin users have access to product user manuals. The manuals can be downloaded as a pdf on our SPIDA Software Support site, and can be used as a troubleshooting tool or for self-study. It is important to note which version of SPIDAMin or SPIDACalc you are currently using so that the proper user manual is downloaded.

Knowledge Base

The SPIDA Software Support Site was created to assist our users with finding the information they need in a timely manner. The search tool on our support site picks up on key words to quickly find the information you are looking for. This knowledge base is an ever growing forum of SPIDA FAQ’s, snips of the user manuals, instructional videos, software release notes and a direct contact to SPIDA Support through our ticketing system. This support outlet is a tool that can be used as a 24/7 reference.

Video Demonstrations

SPIDA’s collection of video demonstrations includes SPIDACalc Lunch and Learn recordings, software integration demonstrations, conference presentation recordings and more. Links to video demonstrations can be received upon request by emailing
