Scia Engineer and ArchiCAD

I used these storyboards to explain data exchange between architect and structural engineer. Building model was created in ArchiCAD, and from filtered view transferred to Scia Engineer using IFC file format.

From Structural model Analysis model was worked out and used to generate FEM model for analysis, design,checks and optimizations. Design changes can be tracked back in ArchiCAD using again IFC format which contains only changed entities exported from Scia Engineer Analysis model back to ArchiCAD.

Feel free to use it to promote IFC and ArchiCAD Scia Engnieer data exchange capabilities.
