thread803-293820: Importing only revised etabs loads into existing safe model

Extended Question:I have imported an ETABS model into SAFE, but now I have updated loading within the ETABS model, and I would like to import only these loads into the SAFE model without overwriting any other information (object properties, load combinations, etc.). How is this done?

Answer:Two options are available forimportingonly a specific set of information into an existingSAFEmodel, including:

Option 1.
1.Import the updatedETABS*.f2k floor as a new SAFE model.
2.Within the initial SAFE model, through File > Import > F2k, select the *.$sf file of this newly created SAFE model.
3.Select Import as a New Model or Add to Existing Model, then specify which objects, loads, etc. will be replaced or kept in the event that they occur in the same location.

Option 2.
1.Import the updated ETABS *.f2k floor as a new SAFE model.
2.Select Edit > Iterative Database Editing to copy the updated tables into the initial SAFE model
