Open files in older versions of ARSA

Dear Sir,

 

I need to open file in older version of ARSA. The file was a building structure created in ARSA2012 x64.

I need to save it in ARSA2011 format. (file to be checked by another office who have only ARSA2011).

Is there a way to save it without damaging the its entity. (I find that panels disappear and only finite elements meshes are displayed after trying to open file in ARSA2011).

 

Your help is very appreciated.

 

Thank you& best regards.

Actually it works. I don't know how but it is possible to open RSAP2012 model with RSAP2011. Up to now I have noticed only problems with claddings.

During opening message that look like "model is made in higher version ... Modification of file could damage it" appear.

Dear,

 

I could open the file done in the ARSA 2012 with ARSA 2011. The major damage is with the panels & claddings.

Only finite elements are shown. Panels entity could not be found and not displayed at all.

Errors was generated during calculation.

 

Thank you.
