Export to ETABS

Export to ETABS

Nasser Marafi



Nasser’s Tools are custom plug-ins created to enhance Autodesk® Revit® Integration with the Structural Analysis Software ETABS. This plug-in also has some other functions which structural engineers would find useful.


Here are some of the Tool’s Features:

The following elements will be exported to ETABS (as a *.e2k file):

·         Columns

·         Braces

·         Beams

·         Walls

·         Slabs

·         Slab Openings

·         Grids

·         Levels

·         Rigid Links




* If the Script does not recognize the Section Family, it will export it as a null element which can later be edited in ETABS.


* You have the option of rotating (about the Global Z-Axis) your analytical model in Revit when exporting to ETABS (without changing your Revit model's geometry).


* The tool is a one-way tool and cannot be used to reimport your ETABS model back into Revit.


* You have the option of exporting All Elements, Selected Elements or Selected Work sets.

  • Great tool
    Ben Walker | July 01, 2019

    Great tool. If you need a service to convert BOTH ways (revit to ETABS and ETABS to Revit), have a look at www.structuredparametrics.com.

    It's a great app. I wonder if you still want to develop it, or write a dynamo package

  • Great free APP
    Jecht Ma | October 19, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I was wondering why it does not recognize steel section family (e.g. UC / UB series) ?

  • Almost Great App
    Dago De La Rosa | March 11, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I wish this app would have the ability to convert in Imperial units. So far it only works SI units. Besides this issue it is a great app.

    This will be available soon. I just posted a version of the tools with this feature included.

    Paul Chambers | October 19, 2012 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Very nice well done!! A great addition would be having the ability to translate the model from the Revit origin so that in ETABS the origin is in a logical location. Many thanks for this useful tool....
