    Hi Ruslana. Is there any possibility to get some focus on the South African market as well in terms of updated design codes and the lack of concrete design codes for South Africa. Robot has a lot of potential here but people shy away from it just because of this. Please reply to let me know if there is any scope for that in the development. Thanks very much for all the effort.

    Great news,

    Can you create Road Map for the ROBOT? I think everybody will benefit from this. Thanks

    Great news to have some developments in RSA and some Hope for the future developments. Go ahead.
    We are really at the point to give up with this great software. Your work and message give a light to the long time dark tunnel in the structural analysis field in Autodesk.
    Thank you and for another great news in RSA developments.




    Good work, Finally I saw a post regarding RSA in BIM and BEAM blog first time. Hope you will update the ACI Code too in the future version…!!!
