IDEA StatiCa uses new BIMapi solution to create BIM links to AXIS VM7 and Robot Structural Analysis 2024. The new solution offers more stable connection between the apps that allows for a comfortable use.

New BIMapi links 

The links to AXIS VM7 and Robot Structural analysis have been available since the patches of 23.0.
This makes it stable, reliable, less prone to create unnecessary errors, and most importantly faster!

When it comes to Robot Structural Analysis we are now able to read eccentricities of 1D elements when importing the model to our Checkbot application. This is a feature that has been loudly asked about by the Robot users. You asked for it, we delivered! 


Be aware that if you have a project created with BIM link in version 23.0 of IDEA StatiCa and you update to new version of 23.1, you might not be able to read the project due to new BIMapi solution. Therefore, we recommend to finish existing projects with version 23.0.
