Recognising objects in SCIA AutoConverter


  1. Q: I cannot see any group in material or cross-section mapping
    A: You need to pick an attribute in the property selection dialog (the Pen icon).
  2. Q: I want to change one specific cross-section/material group but SCIA AutoConverter applies that setting to all similar groups.
    A: Turn off the Smart mapping option.
  3. Q: I have done changes in the settings, but nothing happened.
    A: Setting will take an effect during recognition.
  4. Q: I am struggling to add objects to newly created group.
    A: First, you need to select a group on the left, and then select objects in the 3D scene. An “Add” icon will appear next to the selected group.


  1. Q: Recognizer does not run on all objects.
    A: Make sure that you deselected everything before running the recognizer.
  2. Q: Can I run recognizer only on some objects?
    A: Yes, just keep them selected and click on Recognize.
  3. Q: Nothing is selected, what will be then recognized?
    A: If nothing is selected, all visible members in the 3D scene will be recognized. Transparent objects are still considered as visible.
  4. Q: Recognizer finished, but some errors were reported. What can I do with them?
    A: You will need to go back to the CAD application, adjust the invalid members and try again.
