Join our regular Connection Wednesday webinar and find out how to enhance the workflow in your company – especially between designers and structural engineers.

In the first part of the webinar, we are going to show the cooperation workflow of structural engineers and designers. Our example shows an easy and efficient way to connect an FEA analytical model and a CAD structural model into the one file. Such a joint can be easily checked and optimized in IDEA StatiCa Connection by a structural engineer and with the advantage of the new web-based plug-in for Advance Steel shared with the designer.

In addition, we will go through one “HelpDesk highlight” – current vibrant topic from our support desk. This time something about local deformation check + GMNA.
