About IDEA StatiCa

We develop software for structural engineers and detailers. Our development team researches, tests, and applies new methods of analyzing the behaviour of structures and their members. Based on this, we created IDEA StatiCa – software that enables engineers to work faster, evaluate requirements of the national code thoroughly, and use the optimal amount of material. For us, creating software is a way to contribute to making every new construction around the world safer and cheaper.

Discover the Exciting New Features of IDEA StatiCa 23.1

Release notes IDEA StatiCa 23.1

We are thrilled to introduce our newest version of IDEA StatiCa, 23.1, designed with your speed, safety, and efficiency as our top priorities. In the rigorous and high-stakes realm of structural engineering, this update brings a host of new features and enhancements to help you effectively address the various challenges you encounter regularly.

In this blog, we shall delve into the key aspects of the new IDEA StatiCa 23.1 release. Although the update comes with various features, we will briefly highlight and touch upon the main aspects of the update.

Enhancing Data Sharing Precision: Seamless IFC Export for Efficient BIM Integration

When it comes to precise data sharing, the ultimate objective is to eliminate the necessity of duplicating the same design. The new update utilizes the robust Industry Foundation Classes (IFC)  exporting features located in our IDEA Statica connection app.  This format is vendor-independent, meaning it can be accessed by any Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. Now, you can guarantee that your detailers receive all the necessary information, including an accurately represented model of the connection, complete with bolts, welds, and materials. Attaining accurate exports is now as simple as a single click!

Streamlining Member Design with User-Friendly Features

Creating member designs has become simpler and more user-friendly than ever. Simply select one of the commonly modeled use cases in the wizard, which aids in quickly grasping the member and its added benefits. Additionally, with the rigid support member, you can take advantage of the straightforward input of boundary conditions. 

Automatic temperature calculations

Fire design is a vital aspect of any construction project, resulting in the feature available in version 22.1. The latest update – version 23.1 takes this feature to the next level through the enhancement that we have made.  We are excited to inform you that IDEA StatiCa Connection is now the only application available that can calculate the fire resistance of steel joints with ease!

Fire Analysis

Auto-design welds with ease

At IDEA StatiCa, we take pride in making sure that our users are able to use the structural designing software with ease. A great example of this can be demonstrated by allowing users to auto-design welds to estimate their total capacity with a click of a button. This means you can optimize the weld size based on the welded plate strength and shorten the design time, whilst also ensuring the safe weld size for all welds in your connection projects.

Enhanced Alerts for Safer Connections

Another new aspect of version 22.1 is the alerts in the IDEA StatiCa connection app for when welds and bolts (or bolts and prestressed bolts)  are used for connecting the same plate. As a result, it reduces the thickness and ductility.

Furthermore, the feature also allows you to receive automatic warnings when an electrode stronger than the base material has been utilized.


Better unified user interface

At IDEA StatiCa, we are committed to ensuring our users experience a smoother workflow and enhanced speed and performance. With that commitment in mind, we are excited to introduce a significant upgrade to the graphical user interface (GUI) of Detail. This enhancement enables you to easily choose the specific project or model you wish to work with.

Making the right connections

As leading figures in the structural engineering field, our mission is to inspire and assist our users in crafting the perfect connections for their projects. To further this goal, we’ve introduced the Connection Library, a unique resource that provides inspiration for connection designs. It’s the industry’s first database, encompassing over 400,000 real-life connections.
