Integration of RFEM and Autodesk Revit Structure
Seamless transition from architectural models to structural analysis
Bidirectional data exchange
Revit Structure does not only offer comprehensive options for visualization but a variety of special tools to create structural drawings. RFEM communicates with Revit Structure by means of a direct interface. In this way, bidirectionally, it is possible to create new models and adjust modifications. Thus, Revit Structure perfectly completes RFEM and can be used for quantity surveying, creating item lists or just open a door to the universe of computer-aided design.
Smart design objects
RFEM is based on an object-oriented structural model. The basis of Revit Structure is represented by parametric modeling. Thus, when exchanging data, the intelligence of objects won't get lost. This means that you get an equivalent object for a column or a beam in RFEM and Revit Structure, not only a collection of lines.
Correct structural model
Furthermore, the interface handles typical difficulties resulting from deriving mechanically correct analytical models from physical architectural ones. Due to adjustable reference lines, the load bearing structural parts are merging automatically in the idealized computational model, even if the center lines of columns and beams are not intersecting.
When cross-sections or materials are modified, they can be updated in both programs. New structural components will be added and deleted design elements will be removed automatically.
