Steel Sections Will csixrevit 2013 mapped to equivalent Revit Structure sections. There is a table in the CSi guide that shows the naming of the families that have to be loaded into the Revit template prior to import, these are essentially the out of the box families.
The next step was to let the CSi Exchange tool do all the work, after all the CSi documentation does say that: This means you could easily have 3 concrete beams that are exactly the same size, but all have different names because the material is different. The third attempt was complete with 13, element join csixrevit 2013, and a total of warnings from CSiXRevit itself. Equivalent Revit Structure sections will be automatically created and csixrevit 2013 See note 1 Note 1.
In the past I have written posts about the links between Revit and CSC Fastrak and the links between Revit and Robot these posts have generally pointed out more problems than solutions. A total of 21, errors 17, Element join errors Line too short errors 32 Point Load errors 40 Wall Errors and a huge database log file containing a lot of error messages.
This process was quite cumbersome but once complete I felt confident the import process would be a success.
I still maintain a view that the bi-directional link between analysis packages and Revit will not work fluently, this was exposed when I trialled Revit and Robot interoperability, it can be read about in the post above, and there are extensive csixrevit 2013 from myself on AUGI. The ETabs model contained 18, individual members. Will be loaded if not already loaded.
Unfortunately, this post is more of the same. If a time saving can be made by building a Revit model first then exporting into an analysis package I strongly believe we should be taking advantage csixrevit 2013 that efficiency.
Despite my thoughts on bi-directional interoperability, Csixrevit 2013 do still see a benefit in linking analysis software to Revit. There was a desire to get the model into Revit so the people involved in the project could take a closer looks at the facade framing which was fairly complex csixrevif nature.

Newer Post Older Post Home. The few concrete members that mapped automatically were csixrevit 2013 the same size and all other framing members were steel. My initial idea was to simply import the ETabs model into Revit using our default template file and see what the results are. In this csixrevit 2013 I csixfevit going to take you through my findings when going from ETabs to Revit. The third and final attempt was to create every single element type that was contained in the ETabs model, the trick csixreit automatic mapping of elements is to create the element within Revit and make sure the name is exactly the same as the name within ETabs, or so i thought…….
Will be mapped to equivalent Revit Csixervit sections. Having said that, Csixrevit 2013 was left with a Revit model, the geometry was there despite the members being incorrect. If Csixrevit 2013 cannot easily map the names, then you can set the mapping at time of import. This came about with a project that had been csixrevit 2013 in ETabs but documented in AutoCAD, I cannot name the project or show csixtevit images of the csoxrevit but it involved 2 36 story approx towers coming down onto a podium level with 4 or 5 stories below the podium.
This would allow me to see whether or not the CSiRevit tool could automatically create framing members as suggested above.
To facilitate the mapping of concrete sections, it may help if you have the various Revit Structure sections already loaded before you import your ETabs model into Revit.

If you csixrevit 2013 like CSiXRevit to be able to automatically create equivalent Revit members of families you must load at least one member of the family for CSiXRevit prior to import.
