IDEA StatiCa
The software manufacturer SOFiSTiK newly offers a BIM link with IDEA StatiCa. Using the new Structural Analysis Format (SAF), calculation models with results can be transferred to IDEA StatiCa in order to do the design and code-checks of steel connections.

In this joint webinar, experts from both companies will show you the entire workflow, from modeling the structure through the calculation to designing connections. They will also cover details that need to be considered, such as SAF file format processing, setting nonstandard cross-sections, and eccentricities of members. At the end of the webinar, both speakers will be available to answer your questions.

SOFiSTiK and IDEA StatiCa

SOFiSTiK combined with IDEA StatiCa will allow you to model, design, load, and check steel connections of any topology and loading. And make this data available to your colleagues or subcontractors doing detailing and fabrication. See more about the BIM link.
