  1. Click File > Export > Analytical Model.

  2. Select the analysis model to export.

  3. Type your name in the Author box and your company name in the Organization box.

  4. Specify the units of measure to use for the CIS file.

  5. Specify the file name and folder for the CIS file.

    If you need to update a third-party analysis model with changes made in the Smart 3D model after the initial analysis export from Smart 3D, you must use the same CIS file name for the update export. By using the same name, Smart 3D uses the existing file as input into the generation of the update export file. Smart 3D extracts the identity of the nodes and elements from the initial file and then uses this identification to create the new export file. If you do not use the same file name, Smart 3D creates new node and element identifications. Therefore, you will not be able to update the third-party analysis model because the node and element identifications will not match. For example, Model1A.stp was exported initially from Smart 3D. Now the Design Firm needs to send model changes to the Analysis Firm. The updated file to be exported must be named Model1A.stp. The original export file is renamed with a numbered prefix (based on the date) so the existing file is not over-written.

  • You must create an analysis model using the New Analysis Model Command before you can export the analysis model.

  • You must create a mapping file using the File > New Mapping File before you can use that mapping file when exporting the analysis model.
