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:
File>Export>cis/2. export the data and close the export dialog box.
From Structural, new file.
All family and parts are matched up accordingly.
click on import and receive alert with one error.
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.
