IFC import using AutoSTRAP
- AutoSTRAP program can convert IFC format files, i.e. structure models created in BIM programs such as REVIT or TEKLA, to STRAP models. The program identifies the elements in the IFC file (beams, columns, walls, Slabs and plates) and creates the corresponding geometry elements in the STRAP model.
- In a model that contain levels - The program reads the levels from the IFC file, and creates a level at every elevation where it finds a Slab in the IFC file. Like in DXF import, the user can define loads at all levels, specify mesh parameters, etc.
- A model with no levels and no slabs (e.g.a steel hangar) is transferred directly to STRAP.
- AutoSTRAP shortens the time required to define the geometry of a model. Your 3D model can be transformed into a structural space model ready to be solved in a matter of minutes.
