Improvements of IFC import in SCIA Engineer 16.1
SCIA Engineer 16.1 contains significant improvements in the import of IFC files. The primary concern was the speed of the import. We are proud to announce the results of our development. The import of IFC is much faster than before. Moreover, it is also more memory efficient. The benefit for the user is that he is able to import larger IFC files.
A few examples of the speed increase:
|Memory||1D elements / cross-sections||Slabs / Subregions||Old solution time||New solution time||Difference|
|Ex.1||6 102 kb||14 /3||485 /143||19 s||11 s||-40%|
|Ex. 2||11 042 kb||542 / 153||984 / 420||39 s||21 s||-45%|
|Ex. 3||42 7224kb||0||509 / 224||92 s||59 s||-35%|
