Why are not the cross-sections defined in RFEM imported to REVIT?


To ensure that the cross-sections are recognized when directly importing girders and columns in REVIT, a corresponding family must be available for these components in the REVIT project.
If this is not the case, you can import a suitable family into your project during the import process. The interface then independently recognizes all other cross-sections and creates the corresponding cross-sections within the family.

Figure 01 does not show a 480/520 (mm) timber column. After importing the correct family type, this cross-section and all other cross-sections of the same type are recognized and the import process is successfully completed.
