  • Concrete Detailing
    CAD has helped grow the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry far beyond manually produced paper drawings, empowering us to produce more complex, more accurate designs. Today, the AEC industry continues to face new challenges, including financial constraints that increase pressure to deliver projects more quickly and accurately. As a result, AEC firms are evolving […]

    Structural loads are an important consideration in the design of buildings. Building codes require that structures be designed and built to safely resist all loads that they are likely to encounter during their service life. In Revit, depending on the load duration and type, various load natures can be created (dead, live, wind, etc.). Structural […]

    During a building project, designers and engineers must consider the impact of wind. Whether simply determining design loads or trying to optimize the aerodynamic effects of the building structure and surroundings, wind analysis can pose a challenge. Wind load on a structure depends on several factors including wind velocity, surrounding terrain, and the size, shape, […]

    Revit provides tools for Structural Engineers and Detailers for modeling 3D reinforced concrete and generating quantities, shop drawings, and bending schedules in an advanced BIM environment.

  • What’s New
    Robot Structural Analysis Professional 2021 introduces sequential loading, improves wind load simulations, and works better with Revit.

    The new version (2020.2.115) of the Autodesk Steel Connections 2020 Dynamo package introduces a bunch of new Dynamo nodes and capabilities. One of these new features allows Dynamo scripts to load preconfigured connection types from external Revit files, rather than requiring them to be present in the current project. This capability enables multiple new workflows; […]

    Knowing how to use Microsoft® Office Excel® is one of the essential skills and important tools for structural engineers when designing structures. At the end of the day, engineers rely on the calculation engines they use, so Excel is a great way to ‘gut check’ the output from their analysis and design solutions and to […]

    In the Part 1 of this topic I demonstrated how to leverage the portal frame Dynamo geometry to create its analytical model representation in Robot Structural Analysis Professional.  I also introduced the Structural Analysis for Dynamo package that enables parametric modeling and structural analysis workflows in Dynamo and Robot Structural Analysis Professional. I ended the […]

    In my previous post I showed you how to create a fully parametrized portal frame geometry in the Dynamo environment. After the Dynamo geometry is set, you can create the analytical model representation of this geometry in the Robot Structural Analysis Professional environment. The Structural Analysis for Dynamo package enables parametric modeling and structural analysis […]

    In this post I would like to show you how to create a fully parametrized portal frame geometry in the Dynamo environment. Recently, I added a few Dynamo nodes to the Structural Design package (version 1.1) to help you create such structural geometry. Generally portal frames are used for single-story buildings, but they can also […]

    Autodesk is committed to investing in Robot Structural Analysis to improve your experience with this software and help you maximize the value from your investment in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection. I am pleased to share that we have just released Robot Structural Analysis 2020. The 2020 version contains several new features and improvements […]

    Autodesk has just released the Autodesk Analytical Modeling 2019 Dynamo package, which helps structural engineers to better control and automate creation of analytical models in Revit for consistency and structural analysis preparedness. The parameterization, definition of logical assumptions, their priorities, as well as the customizable scripting enables the analytical model to reflect the individual expectations […]

    In this post of the Structural Precast series, I will cover the Mounting Parts functionality. Structural Precast Extension for Revit has a tool (Mounting Parts) that automatically adds grout tubes, extra rebars, electrical sockets, cable ducts, or other model components to the corresponding precast assemblies. The precast walls and slabs will contain the logic that […]

    Three months ago, I published the Structural Design Dynamo package, which supports various structural workflows in Dynamo and Revit. I shared some example scripts based on the package. I also taught a class at AU on this subject. Since that time, many of you have reached out to me. First, I would like to thank […]

    In this blog post, I’ll continue the subject I started a few weeks ago. In Part 1 I covered how structural engineers and detailers can automate reinforcement designs with Dynamo in the example of straight rebars around window and door openings. Let’s extend the functionality of the script by adding additional rebars for wall openings. […]
