AD.2007-07.3.6 STAAD.foundation V8i Integration
The export of support geometry and reactions to STAAD.foundation V8i can now be initiated from within STAAD.Pro using the Foundation Design mode. This feature is similar to the Import STAAD.Pro File capability included in STAAD.foundation.
When selected, the Foundation Mode opens the Foundation page which contains a view of the whole structure and the Foundation Design Options dialog.
From here, you can select to include all supports, you can graphically select supports, or you can specify a list of support numbers for exporting to a STAAD.foundation project. Similarly, the load cases from the analysis are listed for inclusion in the STAAD.foundation project.
Planned future enhancements also include the export of mat foundations modeled in STAAD.Pro for design in STAAD.foundation.
