EX. To start the Connection Design workflow

To open the example file in the Connection Design workflow, use the following procedure.

Using the Connection Design workflow requires a RAM Connection license. This license can incur additional cost to your organization.

    1. Close any open model files in STAAD.Pro.
    2. On the Start page, check RAM Connection in the Additional Licenses panel. The Additional License Selected message opens to indicate that this can incur additional cost.
    3. Click Yes to activate this license for STAAD.Pro.
  1. Open the file example file US.7. Modeling Offset Connections in a Frame.std in the Analytical Modeling workflow. This file is typically found in the C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition\Samples\Sample Models\US\ directory.
  2. (Optional) On the View ribbon tab, 3D Rendering tool in the Windows group.

    This view is useful to quickly identify the orientation of the columns with respect to the framing beam members. Here, it is evident that the beams and brace frame into the column flanges (rather than the webs).
  3. Either:

    Select the  Run Analysis tool in the Analysis group on the Analysis and Design ribbon tab.


    Press <CTRL+F5>

    The STAAD Analysis and Design dialog opens.

    During the analysis (and design, if specified), an output file is generated. This file may contain selected input data items, results and error messages. Optional print specifications can be used to include additional information in the output file.

  4. Click Done.
  5. Select the Connection Design workflow. The RAM Connection - Validation dialog opens.
  6. Click Close.
