CIS/2 (CIMsteel Integration Standards) is a standard interchange format to facilitate data flow between applications which intervene in the analysis, design and fabrication process of steel structures.
CYPECAD, CYPE 3D and the Integrated 3D structures of CYPECAD can export the introduced and designed structure in CIS/2 format, advised by the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).
Graitec Advance Steel is one of the applications related with the modelling of 3D steel structures for which the correct import of the CIS/2 format generated by CYPECAD, CYPE 3D and Integrated 3D structures of CYPECAD has been tested.
External loads acting on the structure can be introduced in CYPECAD, CYPE 3D or the Integrated 3D structures, so to obtain its optimum design in accordance with the selected code. Additionally, using the Joints I, Joints II, Joints III and Joints IV modules, construction details of bolted and welded connections of rolled and welded I sections can be generated.
By means of the CIS/2 format, all this can be exported to Graitec Advance Steel and obtain a 3D model in the program with:
This way, the project designed by CYPECAD, CYPE 3D or the Integrated 3D structures of CYPECAD will have all the facilities and possibilities offered by Graitec Advance Steel available:
Integrated working in AutoCAD, project drawings, workshop drawings (detailing), take-off, CNC file generation for workshop machinery…
Export in CIS/2 format is done using the option File > Export > Export in CIS/2 format in both CYPECAD and CYPE 3D. In CYPECAD, all the Integrated 3D structures are exported at once in CIS/2 format.
There are two options when exporting in CIS/2 format:
The following aspects should be taken into account for CYPECAD or CYPE 3D to export in CIS/2 format:
CYPE 3D modules:
Modules common to CYPECAD and CYPE 3D:
