Can we import grids (as dxf file) into the STAAD.Pro Physical Modeler ?
As of now there is no direct option to import grids ( as dxf files) into the STAAD.Pro Physical Modeler (SPPM) but you may follow the steps listed below to do the same.
Import the dxf file into the STAAD.Pro Analytical ModelerCreate an ISM file (ism.dgn) from within the Analytical ModelerCreate a new model in the Physical ModelerImport the ism file into the Physical Modeler
The workflow is explained in more detail in the attached zip file Associated_Files.zip
