STAAD PRO & RAM CONCEPT

STAAD PRO & RAM CONCEPT

(OP)
Dear engineers,

does anybody have experience in transferring model from StaadPro to Ram concept?
Ram request what is called .CGFF file from Staadpro, but unfortunately I don't know how to create CGFF file from StaadPro.

Thank you for your help.

Regards,
Riky

RE: STAAD PRO & RAM CONCEPT

There is some instructions in the Concept manual, Chapter 15 - Data Transfer from STAAD, but most of the action creating the GCFF file takes place in STAAD.pro within the Advanced Slab Design tab or mode.

Hi Seth,


Thank you so much for your help,
Still this feature (gcff) doesn't match with my expectation. And I noticed, this extension is a kind of XML file.

Moreover, there is a case when I need to input hundreds of point springs in RAM, and I'm thinking to have a similar feature in staad that editing the file using text editor.
Does RAM have this feature as well? or is it possible to input the springs using table?

regards,
