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


Limitation: Footings on a concrete block cannot be imported from SCIA Engineer.

Workaround:  Import the node without the footing and add it afterward in IDEA StatiCa.


Limitation: Geometrical eccentricity is not imported to IDEA StatiCa.

Workaround: Import the joint and move the beams in IDEA StatiCa to proper positions manually. Imported internal forces include the eccentricity effects, only the geometrical offset is missing.
