Revit Roundtrip [Foundations]

Postby Lenniepen » 22 Jun 2009, 11:55

Hi there,
Does anyone have any experience with the Revit Structure / Scia Engineer Roundtrip?
I am having troubles with foundations in Revit Structure.
For some reason, none of the foundations made in Revit get exported to Scia Engineer during the roundtrip. There a 3 types of foundations in Revit:
- Wall Foundation
- Foundation Footing
- Foundation Slab

Foundations can be imported as supports in Scia Engineer, but non of my foundations are exported to Scia Engineer.

Any tips?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Lennart,

Can you tell me more about what version of Revit and Scia Engineer you are using? It helps me to give a more detailed answer.

It is true that for the latest version of the Revit2Scia plug-in does not support foundations due to changes in the Revit API. We hope to solve this issue in the next release of the Revit2Scia plug-in. It is always possible to model members as "normal" elements instead of foundation elements.

I hope this answer helped you a bit. If not, do not hesitate to ask more about Revit2Scia.

Kind regards,

Product Engineer @ Nemetschek Scia
