Any IDEA StatiCa Connection project file can be opened in the free online IDEA StatiCa Viewer. This tool also allows the export of the model to a 3D DWG file to be opened in any CAD application.

Sometimes, when you open the 3D DWG in Autodesk applications (e.g. Advance Steel), there are some components missing. This is due to the internal data reading error in the software.
