BIM links: Supported versions of 3rd party applications

This article is also available in:
Please check the currently compatible version of the 3rd party applications (BIM links).

We have made several actions to ensure the consistent update process of our BIM links. In each major release of IDEA StatiCa (e.g., 21.0 and 21.1), we will support the two most recent major releases of each linked application. The older versions will become obsolete, this will happen in the major IDEA StatiCa releases only (patches will never disconnect older versions). On the other hand, when a new major release of the BIM application comes, we will develop/update the link in 2 months – the link will appear in a patch of IDEA StatiCa.

We currently support the versions presented in the first column of the table. The “In development” column represents the newest versions that will start to be supported in a patch of a major release.
