To import from Rhino or Grasshopper into SAP2000, models should first be imported into Industry Foundation Classes (IFC), or another intermediate format. Models may then be imported from IFC into SAP2000.
A list of file formats suitable for import into SAP2000 is available within the software interface by selecting File > Import.
Model data may also be selectively imported on a table-by-table basis using interactive database editing, available through Edit > Interactive Database Editing.
