SCADA Pro 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

About the SCADA Pro plugin

You can select any number of steel connections and members in SCADA Pro 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 SCADA Pro model changes. IDEA StatiCa and SCADA Pro give you an efficient workflow for your structural steel that saves time, minimizes errors, helps with optimization, and makes the data available to your colleagues or subcontractors doing detailing and fabrication.


SCADA Pro 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.
