  • Scia Engineer is an integrated structural analysis tool for simple to complex structures supporting multiple materials and a wide range of national standards.Scia Engineer includes a whole set of unique and innovative features.TrueAnalysis= structural and analysis model are integrated in one projectStructure-2-Analysis = automatic conversion of (imported) structural model to the analysis model for calculations, checks and optimisationAutoDesign= optimisation: (i) selected member, (ii) whole structure, (iii) batchActiveDocument= Document regenerates automatically after changes to themodel, editing of inputs in Document leads to modification of the modelQuality is guaranteed by continuous automatic testing and also by manual testing focussing on crucial parts. NemetschekScia is ISO 9001 certified.Scia Engineer is being developed and supported by an experienced international team of erudite professionals lead by expert team leaders. NemetschekScia closely cooperates with prestigious technical universities.Speed is one of the most watched factors. Scia Engineer features thoroughly optimised algorithms for drawing, geometric manipulation and code-checks. 64-bit solver is available.Scia Engineer effectively communicates with 3rd-party applications (i) through standard file exchange (IFC, DStV, DXF, DWG, VRML, etc.) , (ii) through XML interface or (iii) through MS Excel link. The last two options make it available to perform custom made checks and data processing. Specialised links for selected applications are available as well: AllplanRound-Trip Engineering, Tekla Structures, Revit Structure.
