IDEA StatiCa BIM  -  link with other programs

collegamenti bim con software strutturali

IDEA StatiCa is not only a program where the user defines geometry, loads and other data, but also supports a BIM interface that allows to import steel elements (unions, connections) including loads (internal forces) from others programs.

Software features

  • Link with many structural software
  • Link with many FEA / CAD programs
  • Bidirectional BIM Link
  • Elements and loads import
  • Easy to use
  • Automatic
  • Management of multiple nodes simultaneously

Bim Links - Examples

Each engineering office has several programs to deal with different tasks of engineering practice. Outputs of one program are often inputs of the other and vice versa. That is why we developed a unique IDEA BIM (building information modelling) interface which connects IDEA StatiCa with other programs in an easy and effective way. IDEA BIM enables engineers to get inputs from their current software – it instantly transfers model of internal forces to IDEA StatiCa where required members/details can be designed. Some of IDEA BIM links are also two-way, i.e. transferring results from IDEA StatiCa back to FEA program.
