Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Discover the relationship between the physical and analytical models in Revit
  • Learn how to use the Structural Analysis for Revit feature for quick structural checks
  • Learn how to send models from Revit to Robot Structural Analysis and back for full-featured analysis
  • Learn how to perform code group-based design for steel members in Robot Structural Analysis

Description

Description

In this hands-on lab, we will explore the simple, powerful, round-trip workflow between Revit 2017 software and Robot Structural Analysis Professional 2017 software. We'll start with a simple structural model of a building in Revit software, and we’ll develop an understanding of the analytical model that Revit software builds concurrently with the creation of structural geometry. We will then explore the Structural Analysis for Revit feature, which enables static and gravity analyses to be performed on the cloud directly from Revit software. Next, we’ll push that model into Robot Structural Analysis Professional software to perform a basic analysis and code group-based design. Finally, we’ll push the updated geometry from Robot Structural Analysis Professional software back to Revit software and observe that the model has been updated. This session features Robot Structural Analysis Professional and Revit Structure. AIA Approved
