Exporting ArchiCAD model to STAAD Pro

Hello Everyone

I want to export my ArchiCAD model to STAAD Pro. To transfer model to STAAD Pro it must be converted to ISM repository. I could not find how to convert model to ISM repository in ArchiCAD. How I can do that?
OR there is any other link to transfer the model to design software.

Thanks in advance

No, Staad Pro can not read IFC. You need to convert your model to ISM repository.

Never heard of ISM, but it seems to be a Bentley thing.
Best is to ask them directly to provide a plugin.

According to their support pages, Staad Pro CAN read IFC...converting it to ISM.

This talks about the IFC import:

And this gives a general view of using ISM as the core database, but exchanging information with other software...including Revit and Tekla...and with IFC:

Yet, this article states that the only native import formats for STAAD are 3D DXF, QSE ASA, CIS/2 and ISM:
