AxisVM to IDEA StatiCa workflow
About the AxisVM plugin
You can select any concrete member or part of the whole AxisVM model and export it to IDEA StatiCa for structural designing. All the members, cross-sections, and internal forces are also completely synchronized if the AxisVM model changes. IDEA StatiCa and AxisVM give you an efficient workflow for your structural concrete design that saves time, minimizes errors, and opens up optimization possibilities.
This BIM link is managed by Checkbot - an application for the management of BIM workflows. This means:
- Export and synchronize members easily
- Complete control over all of your imported members
- A clear list of all imported items including status checked/not-checked
- 3D visualization of imported members
- Conversion table for materials and cross-sections
- Load combinations management

How to get started
You do not need anything special to get started - just download and install both applications on the same PC, and activate the BIM link in a few easy steps. And you can start exporting and designing concrete members right away. All exports are managed by IDEA StatiCa Checkbot, where you can select any member and open it in detail.
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 concrete connections. It is, of course, still supported by the IDEA StatiCa product team.
