Export SAF File from ARCHICAD

Hint: Before export, it is recommended to fill out the following fields in the Project Info dialog box (File > Info > Project Info). This data will then be visible on the SAF file’s Project and Model Data tab pages.


There are two ways of exporting the structural analytical model:

1.From the ARCHICAD project, use File > Save as.

Choose Structural Analytical Format (*.xlsx)

From the Export pop-up, define whether to export the Entire project, the visible elements in your current view, or selected elements.


2.Use Document > Publish to export the analytical Members visible in your published views.

Export is based on the SAF Translator settings of the current ARCHICAD project.

See Optimizing SAF Translator Settings.
