A wider range of 3rd party applications
Bentley RAM Structural System (RSS) link with RAM interface
We have implemented an FEA link with Bentley built on the .rss format import. This link is a result of communication with our customers and their requests for linking to this popular FEA software.
After saving the structural model in RAM Structural System software, the .rss file is created. Now you have an option to simply import these files into the Checkbot, where the model will be loaded and displayed in the 3D graphic window.
Here you can download a PDF file with the details for use of RAM SS BIM-link import.
Available in both Expert and Enhanced editions of IDEA StatiCa Steel.
Tekla Structural Designer linked through Checkbot
Not only the CAD app Tekla Structures is possible to connect with IDEA StatiCa. Also, another Trimble company application is now possible to link - the FEM app called Tekla Structural Designer (TSD).
This link is not actively supported by IDEA StatiCa but it is being developed on side of Trimble.
STRAP linked through Checkbot
Another 3rd party application possible to connect with IDEA StatiCa apps from version 22.0 is STRAP. This STRuctural Analysis Program is a solution of Israel Software company ATIR Engineering Sofware Development. The user can import the structural model into Checkbot app thanks to the integrated plug-in.
