Here is the course outline:

1. Welcome

In this module you will see what is included in this course and how you will be able to follow it.

2. ARCHICAD Basics for Structural Engineers

If you are new to ARCHICAD it's time to learn how it works. Its interface, creating and editing some elements, and the main settings to allow us to generate a Structural Analytical Model. For existing users, you can review the highlighted settings that you will need to remember.

3. Structural Analytical Model

Starting on how to switch from Physical Model to Structural Analytical Model, and going through the Generation Rules, to prepare the Structural Analytical Model without changing the architectural model, and including the usage of Structural Links and Structural Supports. Here you will find a lot of exercises and tips, from simple examples into more complex details of the Structural Analytical Model, that require rules and links. Before and during the module the new options and terms will be explained. The exchange of Structural Analytical Format (SAF) files between ARCHICAD and other software is an essential part of the Integrated Structural Design Workflow, in this module, we also cover the SAF Translators for Export and Import.

4. Collaboration for Structural Engineers in Archicad

BIMcloud and Teamwork are the tools to allow teams to work together at the same time in the same project. In ARCHICAD 24 they have been improved in order to make possible the workflow of Integrated Design Practices, between architects and engineers, and between ARCHICAD and other software. By supporting many file formats, providing tools to compare models, to track changes in the project, and to manage and organize the issues.
