T.1 Creating a new structure

On the Start page New tab, you will provide some initial data necessary for building the model.

  1. On the Start page, select New.

    The New page opens to the Model Info tab.

  2. Type PORTAL in the File Name field.
  3. Specify a Location where the STAAD input file will be located on your computer or network.

    You can directly type a file path or click Browse to open the Browse by Folder dialog, which is used to select a location using a Windows file tree.

  4. Select Physical for the Type of model. This option selects the modeling method you want to use:
    For creating a model using either the STAAD.Pro analytical modeling interface or the command input file editor.
    For creating a model using the STAAD.Pro物理モデラー interface.
    For creating a building model structure using the Building workflow.
  5. Select English as the system of Units.
    Tip: The units can be changed later if necessary, at any stage of the model creation.
  6. (Optional) Select the Job Info tab to enter related project details, names and dates for quality analysis, and ProjectWiseプロジェクト information.
  7. Click Create.

The STAAD.Pro modeling environment opens and your model file is then opened in the STAAD.Pro Physical Modeler.

Alternatively, if you want to use either the analytical modeling workflow or the command input file editor to create the model, choose Analytical, click Create, and then proceed to either " T.1 Creating the model using the analytical user interface " or " T.1 Creating the model using the command file," respectively.
