IDEA StatiCa works with SkyCiv, a powerful, Cloud-based structural engineering software and API technology.

With the SkyCiv plugin for IDEA StatiCa, you can export single connections directly to IDEA StatiCa Connection Web Viewer or export the entire SkyCiv model to import it into IDEA StatiCa Checkbot. All SkyCiv geometry, materials, and cross-sections used, as well as the internal force results for specified load cases and combinations, are automatically converted.

Full model workflow

Download a converted IDEA Open Model (.xml) file from the SkyCiv IDEA StatiCa Plugin. After creating a new project in IDEA Checkbot, you can proceed with importing your model. Simply use the IOM Import command and select the .xml file generated by SkyCiv.

Full Model Workflow

Export, design, synchronize, and generate a report

SkyCiv 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.
