Staad Pro to Bentley Structural

  • Does anyone know what the best way to import Staad Pro files into Bentley structural is and what format?  Currently I am trying to export from Staad Pro and import with the CIMSteel Intergration Standards format (CIS/2).  However when I try to import within Structural I receive an error stating that the model is unable to import due to the model containing an Analysis model.  Previous steps are as follows:

    From Staad:

    File>Export>cis/2. export the data and close the export dialog box.

     

    From Structural, new file.

    File>Import>Cis/2

    All family and parts are matched up accordingly.

    click on import and receive alert with one error.

    Hello Donald,

    I have attached a few documents showing how data can be exchanged between STAAD and Bentley Structural. I hope you will find the information useful.

    Thanks,

    Sye
