A new Structural Model eXchange (SMX) solution has been implemented to enable a bi-directional exchange between Autodesk® Revit® 2015 software and Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional 2015.
The SMX feature addresses several limitations of the former link, such as the systematic modification of the Revit model during the export for example. With the SMX solution, the information collected on the models during previous transfers is saved and reused to allow for a faster round tripping between both programs.
Although the former link remains functional, the new SMX feature brings significant improvements such as:
- An improved and faster round tripping experience.
- Smaller file transfer.
- Compatibility with Structural Analysis 360 service.
Another advantage of the SMX solution is the possibility to exchange data between Revit and Robot without needing to install both programs on the same machine, or have them run at the same time.
Thanks to this feature you have improved interoperability between Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional !
