Conversion of structural models into analytical models

In conjunction with Allplan Bimplus, a revolutionary new service: SCIA AutoConverter Light is available with Allplan 2021 for Structural Engineers (Serviceplus contract or Subscription required) that can automatically convert your Allplan models into analytical models. Using the new Structural Analysis Format (SAF), the analytical model can be transferred to various structural analysis systems. This enables an openBIM workflow and much better collaboration between design partners.

In this preview webinar, learn how we worked together with SCIA, our expert Nemetschek Group sister company; to address the issues Structural Engineers have integrating within a BIM process. Learn how easy it will be to implement a workflow from Allplan Engineering via Allplan Bimplus and SCIA AutoConverter Light to various structural analysis systems. See for yourself the innovative approach that we have developed and ultimately find out more about the full SCIA AutoConverter with its extended functionality and features, also available to purchase directly from SCIA.

This webinar will cover:

  • Introduction
  • Aims of the Integration with Structural Analysis Solutions webinar
