Change the locale by changing the building code. (Note: you cannot change the code for an existing analysis (member design). You would have to create a new analysis.)
- To switch the locale in BC Calc® software www.bccalc.com or Offline, edit your "Analysis Setting" by clicking on the gear icon.
- Choose the Building Code tab. IBC codes are US and NBCC codes are Canada:
- Click Save to modify the current design locale or click Save as User Defaults to make this your new default setting.
- Click Yes at the warning box and Save then Close. Your new designs should use the building code you have selected for the appropriate locale.
