Design of structural trusses is nothing without structural analysis. So this article will explain how to transfer your Truss+ project to RSA for structural analysis of trusses.
Truss+ is designed to be interoperable with Robot Structural Analysis®.
I would like to share some information with you that might be of possible interest to other Autodesk® Revit® users, especially for those who are already using the Dynamic Legend extension.
One of questions which I often get from my clients is:"Dimensions of the detail component do not adjust properly to the dimensions of each door (it keeps always with the same shape and dimensions). How can I adjust them?"
Answer: The dimensions of the detail component do not adjust properly to the dimensions of each door, because you need to follow these two rules:
1st: Size parameters in the frame have to be the same as it is in your doors. If you use not English Revit or you have created your own size parameters, then these parameters have to be changed in the frame family.
The headache I will talk about today is known to all MEP engineers. Calculation, selection and distribution of radiators in rooms become a huge hardship as the projects get bigger. Not to mention the comparability possibilities of radiators. When calculations are done and selections are made, designer sticks to on manufacturer and only few radiator models which usually exceed the design requirements by 5 to sometimes 20-30 percent. That is a huge waste of money and comfort. So that is why R-Heating application for Autodesk® Revit® is here to help you.
BIM Tree Manager is innovative and powerful BIM software for incredibly speedy building design, facility management and BIM data analysis in the current or linked projects. It allows each Revit user to navigate, find or modify every element and element parameters with ease. And the best news - this excellent software is supplemented with new useful features!
BIM Tree Manager v2013.3 and v2014.2 - what's new:
It seems this week is dedicated for Revit extension Dynamic Legend. I have decided to write another blog post about a commonly asked question. It sounds something like that:
Is it possible to change the legend header «Family», «Level» etc. to other words? Or:
Dynamic Legend is a powerful Autodesk® Revit® Architecture/Structure/MEP extension that allows designers to quickly create, modify and update legends for Revit elements. It is time-saving software that is used by many Revit users worldwide. Using this add-in each Revit user can create & update intelligent legends and specifications per different legend pages. Dynamic Legends works with all Revit categories those can be added to a legend view.
From time to time we get questions about Revit app Dynamic Legend possibilities. At this time I will answer to quite a common question:"I would like to create a block that has parameter driven text, i.e. a mixture of vertically and horizontally aligned text, and for this block then to be copied downward. How to do that?"
There are always one or two headlines in daily papers about people killed in blaze. It is a great concern. These lives could be certainly saved by proper fire protection. The average death toll in the world is 10.7 people per million residents. This figure is different in various countries, e.g. it was only 2 in Switzerland and 18 in Finland by 2007. The fact is that one person is already too much.
Insert Elements is an Autodesk® Revit® Architecture/Structure/MEP add-on for quick insertion of architectural, structural, mechanical elements (Furniture, Lighting Fixtures, Mechanical Equipment, Structural Connections, Areas, etc.) into predefined positions of Revit model. This Revit app uses built-in and fully customizable rules that are logically related with other objects.
Question that has reached us: "I can get the hangers to insert, but cannot get the hanger to be the correct size for the duct it is supporting."
A successful BIM project will always be defined by its data richness which should be leveraged with the model workability and consistency. Workable model should be clean and smartly organized by not losing necessary data richness. Consistency among elements in a project makes the BIM project cost effective.
BIM solution Wall+ for Autodesk® Revit® is a perfect example for automated framed building design. This application allows Revit® users to create their sustainable buildings excluding all the dirty drafting work from their everyday processes.
Wall+ is a very versatile BIM solution that has almost all possible wall framing situations in its workflow that can be easily configured.
