ideCAD Structural 7

Drawing up plans and compatibility with IFC
IDS technology provides architects with a platform for cooperating with civil engineers while dispensing with classical time consuming and error-intensive methods of working. The use of the same static components in ideCAD Architectural and ideCAD Structural and the joint data model pave the way for a new dimension in cooperation. The comprehensive range of CAD features in ideCAD Structural - normally only available on this scale in architecture software - allows the simple generation and elaboration of form and reinforcement drawings.

Exchanging data with other CAD programs
ideCAD Structural supports the IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) format providing you with an interface to other programs produced by over 650 manufacturers worldwide. ideCAD Structural's compatibility with all other architecture and static programs supporting IFC ensures a smooth working process.

ideCAD Structural allows you to save your projects in 100% compatible AutoCAD DWG format and also provides compatibility ensured for DXF, DWF, TIFF, JPG, BMP, PNG, TGA, SGI, PCX, PSD, CUT, AFP (import only), ICO, CUR, ANI, IFF, PCD (import only), FPX, PBM, PGM, SCT, RAS, XPM, XWD, WMF and WPG.

You can read all of these file formats into your project without any problem. This not only means that material from previous projects can be used for new ones; limitations when exchanging data with your colleagues are also eliminated.

Form and reinforcement drawings
With ideCAD Structural you can make calculations and measurements according to DIN 1045, DIN 1045-1 and EC2 and automatically generate form and reinforcement drawings according to the regulations laid down these standards. The engineer can modify the settings for fonts, colors, shadings, the positioning of dimensionings, plan sizes and borders. Furthermore, modifiable presettings are available which are applied when reinforcement suggestions and drawings are automatically generated.
