Interoperability with focus on Open BIM

The Open BIM approach integrated in Scia Engineer enables all partners to share smoothly and safely the project data across various platforms.

Collaboration between you and your partners participating in the design process is straightforward, thanks to the full commitment of the Nemetschek Group in Open BIM. Especially through enhanced implementation of the IFC 2x3 exchange format in Scia Engineer 2012, better cooperation between the various partners is the precise goal. Also read the "Open BIM in Action" section on our corporate website to see practical examples of data-exchange between different software solutions.

Other enhancements in our BIM Engineering Toolbox also facilitate sharing of data. Besides this, a cloud storage service Scia Desk gives you access to a ultra-safe backup system and smooth sharing of project data. A Scia partnership with Solibri facilitates BIM managers to check the models within any cooperation process.

Advanced analysis with integrated design

Scia Engineer integrates modelling, finite element analysis and multi-material design in one application.

The extensive calculation capabilities of Scia Engineer cover a majority of common as well as unusual design situations. This means more advanced analysis types such as dynamics, second order calculation or time dependent analysis.

Scia Engineer 2012 is offering new functionality in specialised and unique approaches like detailed design of e.g. separate roof panels previously analysed in the context of the whole structure, sequential analysis combining two different types of calculation or overall optimisation of dimensions, shape, load-positions, etc. reflecting the outcomes of latest mathematical research in the field.
