Know limitations for AxisVM

This article is also available in:

The link now works for a wide variety of connections/joints. However, please take into account the yet unsupported functionality:


Limitation: You can not mix for example AISC code with European materials.

Workaround: When exporting joints or members, the Design code has to be the same type as Materials, used in the structure. 


Limitation: To be able to receive the internal forces from the non–linear analysis to IDEA StatiCa is important to keep the following rules.

Workaround: At first, we need to run the linear analysis.

Subsequently, we can run the non–linear analysis. This process guarantees that we will import the internal forces from combinations and load cases from Axis VM to IDEA StatiCa.
