Is it possible to export the form-finding results? For example in a DXF file?


The result of the form-finding can be exported to a DXF file.

There are several options for this.

For example, you can use the "Direct Export" to a DXF file.
Please note that AutoCAD must run as an application in the background.

Another way is to use the Export feature in the File menu.

It is important to export the 3DFACE elements.

Unfortunately, there is no direct interface to Autodesk Revit at this moment.
However, the webinar about tensile membrane structures shows a possible workflow for integrating the export into a Revit model. For this, see the following link.
