GRAITEC BIM Connect enables effective and efficient BIM workflows between Autodesk® Revit® and Autodesk® Advance Steel®, as well other GRAITEC software including Advance Design, Arche and SuperStress (for structural design and analysis), and GRAITEC Advance Workshop for Steel Fabrication Management (MIS).
Intelligent BIM workflows are essential to retain the integrity of the originating model and its associated downstream data. BIM Connect links Revit models with GRAITEC Advance solutions for optimized BIM workflows and streamlined synchronization of the design-to-detailing-to-construction process of structural projects in accordance with U.S., Eurocode and other international standards.
GRAITEC BIM Connect also supports multi-discipline and multi-platform workflows with advanced options enabling the transfer of building performance FEM results between Advance Design and Revit.
GRAITEC BIM Connect's ability to bi-directionally transfer essential data between Revit and Advance Steel helps drive improved productivity and reduce typical manual data transfer errors. Additionally, this functionality also acts as a catalyst for further workflow improvements by making intelligent data available for the automation of related downstream processes, such as rebar creation in Revit (with Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers) or connection design in Revit and Advance Steel.
Summary of key functionality:
- Integrated into and installed with the PowerPack for Revit (free trial available on the store here)
- Compatible with all Revit 2019 and 2020 versions
- Bi-directional links between Revit, Advance Design, Advance Steel, and Advance Workshop
- Ability to import smlx (Steel markup language) files exported from Advance Steel
- Revit projects transferred to Advance Design retain the Revit project tree-structure
- Multiple controls enable intelligent filtering to share only elements and data needed (loads, analytical elements, steel only, a full model with analysis results, etc)
- Automatic material mapping for steel sections and concrete shapes
- Circular column sections can be mapped by radius or diameter
- Ability to transfer FEM results to Revit and Advance Steel (necessary for automating downstream processes such as 3D rebar design in Revit with GRAITEC BIM Designers)
- Elements split at supports (slabs, continuous beams) can be transferred and synchronized
