This video tutorial series explains all steps from the Revitmodel to structural design with . How do we adjust the analytical model in Revit. What to consider when defining openings, loads and supports. How to arrange edge releases. Where is the mapping of material and cross-sections happening. First the calculation is done with the 3D system and the column design is shown. After that, a 2D subsystem is derived from 3D and calculated. Finally we look at the design of beams and slabs. In the next step, columns and a floor slab are automatically reinforced based on the design results. It continues with the design of short Revit walls, such as those that can arise from doorways. Next we look at the wall area above openings. The lintel usually remains here. SOFiSTiK integrates the internal FEM forces of the wall so that the lintel can be designed as a beam.
In the summer of 2022, SOFiSTiK introduced the AMG (Analytical Model Generator), a groundbreaking new tool that allows Revit users to automatically and effortlessly create and optimize analytical models. The Analytical Model Generator is also presented in this series.
Then we continue with new features that were introduced with SOFiSTiK 2023:
– Variable Thickness and Attribute Lines
– Setting the local coordinate systems for slabs and walls
– Analytical column model: line or membrane? with the AMG
After that it is explained how to generate 2D plan views for analytical elements in Revit.
With SOFiSTiK version 2024 there are news how to design short revit walls as columns. So part 20 shows that now imperfections and 2nd order theory can be considered. In the same video the new Column Design Assistent is explained.
