Reliable BIM workflows are key for effective project work. That is why we invested in the massive upgrade of the “Code-Check Manager” application. We also gave it a better name: the Checkbot. This slick-looking application is the new hub of IDEA StatiCa workflows with 3rd party software boosting the productivity of engineers working with our BIM links.
Slender reinforced concrete columns are very sensitive to imperfections which puts extra pressure on engineers during the whole design-build cycle. IDEA StatiCa Member, equipped with a new GMNIA solver in version 21.1, provides a reliable tool for engineers who need to deliver clear and comprehensive design reports of slender columns. Read more about slender column design.
IDEA StatiCa Detail has proven to be a unique structural design tool for critical members and details in reinforced concrete structures. Version 21.1 expands IDEA StatiCa Detail to pre-stressed concrete as well. Engineers can now understand, design and code-check discontinuities in pre-cast members and details. This dramatically decreases the time needed to design pre-stressed beams, diaphragms, etc. Read more about designing prestressed discontinuity regions.
Other improvements in concrete and pre-stressing include:
IDEA StatiCa Connection is quickly becoming a standard of connection design worldwide. Version 21.1 brings various code-check and modeling improvements as well as a new approach to handle repetitive connection designs.
Connection Browser is here! This unique tool will help you find a suitable design solution from a library of predefined designs and apply them right away. The Connection Browser will work with three databases of steel connections. The first is the set defined by IDEA StatiCa in every installation. The second is the set of connection designs created and saved by each user. The third will be a company set of connections each of our customers can create and maintain (this will be released in one of the patches of version 21.1. coming out in a couple of weeks). Read more about the Connection Browser.
