Multi-Ply Beam Fastening

As a User, I would like to choose whether to use Bolts, Screw or Nails as a fastener.  I would like like the ability to set a default fastener.

    Calling out other fasteners would be nice.  i.e. Gun nails 0.131"x3" values, Simpson StrongTie SDS, SDW screws.

    Currently Clicking the radial button, Multi-ply Fastening, will try to design the beam with nail connections first.  If nails fail, then it will go to Bolt Fastening. Screw fastening is not an option at the moment, but will be apart of future development
