calcbuilder is a standard module, so you can load it at any position of your template using module configuration. In order to load a module inside an specific section (like a tab inside a virtuemart product), you'd need to know how that section is built, maybe you're using a plugin or a customized template to build the tabs, you can ask your extension or template support about how to load a module inside that content, maybe there is any position of the template you can choose at the module to show it there.

If tabs are created as a custom template and thus there is php code involved, you could add these php lines to load a joomla module, this is joomla standard, not only related to calcbuilder but for any other module:

jimport( 'joomla.application.module.helper' );
$module = JModuleHelper::getModule( 'calcbuilder', 'CalcBuilder' );
echo JModuleHelper::renderModule( $module );

Where the second 'Calcbuilder' is the name/title of your calcbuilder module.

If you can provide more details about how your tabs are built, please place a ticket at the helpdesk, there we can share code and files if needed.

Hope this helps, regards
