Importando 3D DXF

Import 3D DXF files to SkyCiv S3D

SkyCiv S3D has the ability to accept 3D dxf files that are normally exported from a 3rd party CAD program. DXF (ou simplesmente arrastando e soltando o arquivo na interface do usuário) was developed by Autodesk and is an open, universal format for CAD models and was created to allow seamless data transfer between CAD programs. Observação: DXF of custom shapes can be imported into SkyCiv Section Builder, click here for how to import a DXF into SkyCiv Section Builder. Neste artigo, we are exporting the entire structure:

Why is this useful?

At the moment, DXF is the best possible method of pulling general CAD models into Structural Analysis software. Infelizmente, CAD and Structural Analysis software rely on very different data. CAD models require meshes to display the 3D model and do not necessarily store information on materials or sectionsit is purely geometric. Structural Analysis software requires nodes, which connect lines and 2D plates. Structural Analysis software also requires information on the sections, materials and boundary conditions to be most effective. It is important to note that this article is purely referring to CAD software (not BIM). Software BIM, such as Revit and AllPlan, offer better solutions of transferring this informationas they contain more data rich file formats which allows structural engineers to pull more accurate section data. (See our Revit Plugin for more information).

DXF allows some of the geometric and coordinates to be transferred from CAD -> Software de análise estrutural, and can save engineers hours in rebuilding the modelparticularly node locations and members. This means an engineer can get a good starting basis from an existing CAD model, with their nodes and members in the correct locationreducing the need for double handling.

So if a user imports a DXF file from a CAD program, SkyCiv will interpret the DXF as points and lines which are then turned into SkyCiv’s definition of nodes and members.

Section Identification

The functionality also has the capability to identify different sections relating to each line tagged in the DXF file itself. This feature allows users to then self define their preferential sectional data based on the already identified sections. The good thing here is if modelled correctly, the members should meet at centre points via a nodewhich is exactly how an analytical model should be connected.

It’s important to note that DXF files don’t contain section data (ou seja. beam depth, largura, material etc..), they simply have an ID number. This is one of the main drawbacks preventing it from being a full solution from CAD – Análise estrutural.

Exporting the DXF file correctly

There are a number of ways you can export a dxf file. Por exemplo, dxf can be exported in 2D for purposes of drawings. These are a different application to what we are trying to use DXF for, so the following settings should be set when exporting DXF (Nota: all CAD programs are different so the wording can be different in each). DXF files should be exported as the following:

  1. 3D lines and pointsas in the above point, DXF can be used in 2D. Since we want the entire model, we should export the 3D structure
  2. Export as centre linessome DXF files will export the full edges of the members, which is incorrect. We need to export the centre line in which the shape is exported through

Supported CAD Programs

There are various CAD programs that are able to export a 3D DXF file. Capitalizing on this capability will allow users to integrate between the CAD program and S3D to prevent having to rebuild a model from scratch. Below is a list of some of the popular programs that are able to export a compatible 3D DXF file for SkyCiv to import.
