Tekla Developer Awards 2019: SAAGIRID_DEMO
Sanjoy Nath, Structures Online.
SAAGIRID is Structural Analytics (Not Analysis Tool) Algebraic Geometric Integrated Relational Interactive Design and Detailing System. This has two parts. It reads STAAD file and generates dxf 3d itself (it has own dxf generation engine inside that) decides grids location and prepares grids also. Its demo version don't make Material planning (Full version can).
This helps for Pre-Engineered Structures modelers to import contour plates model from STAAD files taper definitions.
Problem that app solves
STAAD Taper sections to proper aligned contour plates model importing inside Tekla is not there.
We cannot import Contour plate using the ASCII format. You can export contour plates to .asc format, however import is not possible.
I found similar development item. Its development numbers are TTSA-4895 & TTSA-15639. We will let you know once there will be any development in this regard.
Please note, we can import linear plates created as beam, but not contour plates. It is also possible to import points, but not contour plates
Interarch Building Product India and Richa Industries India uses 2013 version of SAAGIRID.
