Project Setup and Start-up

The power of working with Revit is the ability to have project templates that allow for consistent working practices. In this module, we will look at how to build a template that can be used for the creation of a structural model ready for Analysis in Robot: from Creating structural analytical views to Structural and project settings, and finally custom structural families.

Create analytical models in Revit

When you are preparing a Revit model to be transferred to Robot or other structural analysis programs you need to review the structural member releases to verify they are correct. You may also want to define load combinations of various types that can be exported to Robot or other structural analysis programs.

Perform Structural Analysis in Robot

Perform advanced structural analysis, verify code compliance, and use BIM-integrated workflows in Robot Structural Analysis Professional to exchange data with Revit. In this learning path, you learn how to import Revit data to Robot, analyze the design, and update the Revit model with changes.

Detailing Structural Models - Steel

Learn the interoperable workflows between Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Advance Steel. We start by downloading the Autodesk Advance Steel Extension for Autodesk Revit and using it to export the structural BIM data from Revit. We then use that BIM Data in Advance Steel to finish the structural model and create its documentation and BOMs. Finally, we synchronize the Revit model by importing fabrication-level steel sections and connections from Advance Steel.

Detailing Structural Models - Concrete

Explore the best practices for continuing with the BIM workflow into the detailing stage of a project. It is at this point that many individuals start using line work to develop their details, especially when it comes to showing reinforcing. This course will show you that modeling actual rebar is not only just as easy as drawing lines, but it is much more efficient, and you will see that when the detail is complete when you flex the model, your reinforcing will move with the cover settings that you predefine.

Bridge Design Detailing and Documentation in Revit

Revit is used to complete the details for rebar placement and scheduling. Once done, preliminary quantities and schedules are created to ensure the bridge stays within the project budget. Finally, the bridge documentation can be done to communicate how to build the bridge. In this learning path, you learn how to take the InfraWorks model to Revit to add rebar, calculate quantities, and document the design.
