IDEA StatiCa works with your NextFEM. You can select any number of steel connections and members in NextFEM 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 NextFEM model changes. IDEA StatiCa and NextFEM give you an efficient workflow for your structural steel design that saves time, minimizes errors, and opens up optimization possibilities.
Workflow NextFEM 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 NextFEM 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? NextFEM 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
Link activated directly inside NextFEM application, more information at: https://www.nextfem.it/it/steel-building-design-with-nextfem-designer-and-idea-statica/
NextFEM 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.
