IDEA StatiCa works with your Advance Design. You can select any number of steel connections and members in Advance Design and export it to IDEA StatiCa for structural design and code-checking. All the beams, cross-sections, and internal forces are not just exported, but they are also synchronized if the Advance Design model changes. IDEA StatiCa and Advance Design give you an efficient workflow for your structural steel design that saves time, minimizes errors, and opens up optimization possibilities.
Workflow Advance Design and IDEA StatiCa
You do not need anything special to get started - just download and install both applications on the same PC, IDEA StatiCa will automatically detect the Advance Design installation and activate the plugin. And you can start exporting and designing steel connections right away!
Export, design, synchronize, generate a report
Ready to solve various steel connections? Advance Design combined with IDEA StatiCa will allow you to model, design, load, and check steel connections of any topology and loading. And make this data available to your colleagues or subcontractors doing detailing and fabrication.
Scope of the BIM link
Linked applications: IDEA StatiCa Connection
How does the link work for older IDEA StatiCa versions?
IDEA StatiCa versions up to and including 21.0 (released April 2021) are using the application Code-check manager. It has limited capabilities to export and synchronize steel connections. It is, of course, still supported by the IDEA StatiCa product team.
