About the Strand7 plugin

You can select any concrete member or part of the whole Strand7 model and export it to IDEA StatiCa for structural designing. All the members, cross-sections, and internal forces are also completely synchronized if the Strand7 model changes. IDEA StatiCa and Strand7 give you an efficient workflow for your structural concrete design that saves time, minimizes errors, and opens up optimization possibilities.

The 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
