In line with the release of Revit 2018, comes the Structural Analysis Toolkit as one of the best add-ons for Revit. It provides a suite of tools that supports the Building Information Modelling (BIM) process and allows structural engineers and technicians to analyse and check your structure from within the Revit environment.
Using this toolkit structural designers and engineers can optimize their workflows in the cloud and on the desktop by using the analytical model built in Revit software to conduct cloud-based structural analysis with access to A360 services, and by extending the Revit model to Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis Professional software, or supported third party analysis solutions such as Graitec Advance Design.
The toolkit contains the following items:
• Link with Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis Professional
Using the link, you can send a Revit model to Robot and have direct integration or work with an intermediate file depending on your workflow.
• Autodesk® 360 Structural Analysis for Revit
Using this link, you can perform a cloud-based structural analysis of you Revit analytical model. In the cloud solution, you can perform a static analysis and a gravity analysis and review the results in the Revit project or on the Autodesk® 360 S Analysis Professional Structural Analysis website.
• Import Results from Graitec Advance Design
Use the Results Manager to review, download, or remove results packages from FEM software, including Graitec Advance Design.
The toolkit can be installed from the Autodesk App Store using this link or through your Autodesk Account.
If you need any more information or advice on working with FEM Model data within your Revit project, please contact your local Graitec office today.
