Is Revit able to control the specific member types of Dlubal? For example, you want to transfer the round members of a wind connection as tension members and not as a beam.


This is possible only conditionally. Revit allows you to activate so-called "diagnostic parameters" for the member types "Tension" and "Taper". After activation, both parameters can be controlled in the analytical member properties. RFEM reads this information during the import from Revit and assigns the assigned member types to the corresponding members. The procedure is shown in the attached video.

When exporting from RFEM to Revit, the software parameters are automatically activated. The member types are assigned according to the RFEM file. Unsupported member types are defined as "beam".
