SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design enables you to perform structural analyses of buildings and member design directly in Autodesk® Revit®.
The App provides for a full Finite Element Analysis and design workflow – from model consistency checks to code checking for concrete members like slabs, columns, and beams. Structural analyses can be performed in 3D – allowing for realistic simulation of the structural stiffness and optional consideration of the construction sequence. Additionally 2D and 3D subsystems can be adopted in combination with an automatic load takedown. Members can be grouped and accordingly designed in Ultimate and Serviceability Limit States. Calculation and design reports will be generated automatically. Results can be visualized and managed in Revit or be transferred to spreadsheets for further processing using the Export to Excel function.
Together with the full support of collaboration features, SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design enables a seamless structural analysis workflow within Revit.
When installed with SOFiSTiK 2020, the app enhances into a Revit interface for the full SOFiSTiK FEA.

New Features of Version 2020
• A dedicated Dynamo package ‘SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design’ is available on the Dynamo Package Manager allowing to control the calculation process in Revit and to extract analysis results and other data from a SOFiSTiK database.
• The new command ‘Filter Loads’ enables checking and selective display of Revit loads in the model.
• SOFiSTiK Structural Properties are now available for Revit Boundary Condition elements
• The user-defined assignment of SOFiSTiK structural element numbers is now possible for analytical models.
• Structural point numbers can now be assigned to analytical nodes allowing to easily identify these points later.
• A new Structural Property enables the definition of Cables and Truss elements in the model.
• A new command ‘SOFiSTiK Data Management’ allows us to control, adjust and purge SOFiSTiK related information like sections and materials saved in the Revit file.
• The user can now set the folder to be used as a working directory for all SOFiSTiK-related files of the project
• Changing the data source of a design group (e.g. main or subsystem) is now possible by right mouse click on the Design Browser
• The calculation and design reports (*.plb files) can be exported as Word (*.docx) files
• The results preview of the column design dialog now displays the reinforcement ratio.
