FEM-Design - IDEA StatiCa connection

FEM-Design to IDEA StatiCa workflow

Perform global analysis in your FEA
Share structure and forces with IDEA StatiCa
Design selected connections
Code-check and optimize connections

You can select any number of steel connections and members in FEM-Design and export them to IDEA StatiCa for structural design and code-checking so you can model, design, load, and check steel connections of any topology and loading. All beams, cross-sections, and internal forces are also completely synchronized if the FEM-Design model changes. IDEA StatiCa and FEM-Design give you an efficient workflow for your structural steel design that saves time, minimizes errors, helps with optimization, and makes the data available to your colleagues or subcontractors doing detailing and fabrication.


This third-party integration is developed and maintained by StruSoft. IDEA StatiCa does not take primary responsibility for maintaining this integration. All technical requirements and questions should be addressed to the link developer directly.
