Revit and the Role of Structural Analysis Software
Building Information Modeling processes enabled by Revit are leading to advances in the building industry. For more than twenty years, the building industry has used 3D models so that 2D production documents could be created automatically, or the related NC data could be sent directly to automatic production.
Many engineering firms utilizing Revit are concurrently using stand-alone structural analysis software for the design phase. These analysis tools accurately capture the structure’s response under applied loads and alerts the designer if the elements are prone to failure. The seamless bidirectional interoperability between Revit and structural analysis software is critical.
