Have you ever needed your colleague to export a connection from Autodesk® Advance Steel® but an IDEA StatiCa license was not installed on his machine? Now he can get a FREE plugin to export from Autodesk Advance Steel to IDEA StatiCa Connection.
Moreover, all detailers without an IDEA StatiCa license can export a connection to the cloud Viewer and from there, export and send the.ideacon file to the structural engineer.
After the installation, you can use several new commands to start the export process. By selecting the desired standard, you can export any connection to the IDEA StatiCa Viewer on a cloud. Cloud Viewer is a free service enabling you to display any connection from IDEA StatiCa and export it to 3D DXF model or generate an .ideacon file. (Please note that the IDEA StatiCa Viewer plugin for Autodesk® Advance Steel® plugin differs from the Code-check manager plugin which enables you to work with multiple connections at a time, synchronize models, etc. and requires a valid license.)
The plugin is for FREE. That means it does not require a license of IDEA StatiCa. It is activated by downloading the install file from IDEA StatiCa website or the Autodesk® AppStore.
