Modest to IDEA StatiCa workflow
About the Modest plugin
You can select any number of steel connections and members in Modest and export them to IDEA StatiCa for structural designing 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 Modest model changes. IDEA StatiCa and Modest 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.
MODEST BIM link is developed and maintained by a third-party integration company. IDEA StatiCa does not take any responsibility for this integration. All technical requirements and questions must be addressed to the developer
