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.

Exported elements

Export in CIS/2 format

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:

  • The simple rolled, welded and cold formed steel sections with constant cross-sections whose references coincide with the Advance Steel libraries.
  • If the licence possessed by the user contains the Export in CIS/2 format and Joints I modules of CYPE, the connections resolved by the Joints I. Welded. module will also be available in CIS/2 format.
  • If the licence possessed by the user contains the Export in CIS/2 format and Joints II modules of CYPE, the connections resolved by the Joints II. Bolted. module will also be available in CIS/2 format.
  • If the licence possessed by the user contains the Export in CIS/2 format and Joints III modules of CYPE, the connections resolved by the Joints III. Welded. module will also be available in CIS/2 format.
  • If the license possessed by the user contains the Export in CIS/2 format and Joints IV modules of CYPE, the connections resolved by the Joints IV. Bolted. module will also be available in CIS/2 format.

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 options

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.
