Can AutoPIPE export the beam structure to STAAD using pipelink?
Please see the following AutoPIPE help section: Help > Contents> Contents Tab> Command Reference> File Commands> Export> Model to STAAD Using PipeLink
As seen in the online help:
The following data will be exported:
- PipeLink revision information- Model information- Piping Geometry as an ADI- Pipe Supports- Pipe Support Connections- Supports- Support Loads- Anchors- Anchor Loads
Only those items listed above are exported to STAAD. As such, BEAMS are not listed and thus are not exported to STAAD. However, structure created in STAAD are able to be imported into AutoPIPE.
