GS. To open a STAAD.Pro model

To open an existing STAAD.Pro model, use the following procedure.

  1. On the Start page, select Open. The New page opens to the Recent tab.
    Recently opened models are organized by the following categories:
    • Analytical
    • Physical
    • ProjectWise
    • Archive
    • All
  2. Either:

    select a recently used model from one of these tabs


    select Open Other Models to search for a STAAD input file


    select either Sample Models or Verification Models to open the example models which are installed with the program

    If you select a recent model, it will open. If you select to browse for a model, an Open dialog opens.
  3. In the Open dialog, navigate to and select a STAAD.Pro file (file extension *.std) and then click Open. The selected file opens.
If the STAAD.Pro file does not have a ProjectWiseプロジェクト associated with it, then you will be prompted to select one.
