Can we open up desktop BC Calc files (*.bcc) in web BC Calc? Yes! Converted to BCCX format.

You will be able to open files created in the desktop version of BC Calc® software in the web based version.  The legacy *.BCC file format must be converted to *.BCCx file format.

Version as of 1/30/2019. Now includes solid sawn product selection for converted members.
