Revit Structure users can now leverage the full power of Building Information Modeling by synchronizing their Revit Structure models with RISA-3D and/or RISAFloor. As an Autodesk Authorized Developer, RISA Technologies has created a full-fledged bi-directional exchange link with Revit Structure.
New models can be created in either Revit Structure or RISA software using the information available in the other program. All geometric and design information including materials, family instances, walls, slabs, openings, grid lines, boundary conditions, footings, loads and load combinations can be created/updated/deleted in either of the two programs using the information available in the other program.
The new exchange file method allows continuity of data flow throughout the exchange cycle. Users can add new elements and/or additional design to the RISA model and these changes will be retained in RISA while round-tripping.
The robust Excel based XML mapping file provides the capability to customize the processing of shapes, materials and load cases. A log file is created during every export/import operation giving a synopsis on the number of elements translated and errors/warnings encountered, if any.
