Modelling

 
Modelling in SCIA Engineer
Easy-to-use graphical environment for direct modelling in 3D
Automated checks and conversions for imported models
Parametric modelling for repetitive and optimization tasks
Analysis and Structural Model integrated in one project to save time and minimize errors in the case of exchange of data with architects/draftsmen
Library of fabricated and typical sections, integrated designer for a general cross-section
Beams and columns of any geometry: straight, curved, arbitrarily shaped, with a cross-section varying along the length or with openings
Plates, walls and shells can be flat or curved, optionally with openings, subregions or of a variable thickness
Ribbed slabs, slabs composed of prefabricated elements
Auxiliary grids and storeys for more effective work with large models
Library of predefined structural parts: frame, truss girder, spiral ramps, dome, pipe elbows, etc.
Auxiliary entities such as lines, curves, volumes, text labels, dimension lines
Possibility to exclude selected entities such as architectural objects from the analysis
Import and export of the model using DXF, DWG, VRML, PSS, IFC, SDNF, DSTV, XML, PDF 3D. Bi-directional links are available for Allplan, ArchiCAD (Structural Work Link), Vectorworks, Tekla Structures, Revit (Autodesk), Etabs, etc.
