SOFiSTiK Reinforcement Generation automatically generates a 3D rebar model inside of Autodesk® Revit® Structure 2016 based on computed analysis and design results. The rebar model provides an automatically generated proposition of reinforcement layout which fulfils the reinforcement requirement and which can be freely modified.
Reading of the analysis results directly from the SOFiSTiK database (CDB) as well as from the Revit Results Packages.
Automatic generation of reinforcement bars for beams, columns, walls and slabs using results from analysis and design.
Visualization of required (theoretical) and physically inserted reinforcement ensuring that adequate reinforcement is provided.
Import of analysis and design results from SOFiSTiK database (CDB) and storage as Results Packages
On behalf of the Autodesk® React Structures team I am pleased to provide you with our first of many Technical Previews of our next generation structural analysis platform.
Autodesk React Structures is structural analysis software for BIM that provides intuitive tools to quickly analyze a variety of structure types within a single software platform.
React Structures came to be by way of customer feedback.
We heard from many of our customers that they were ready for a new, modern, purpose-built analysis platform. They are getting tired of the tools they have been using and didn’t feel that they were continuing to meet their needs. They liked the capabilities of Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional, but wanted something more tightly integrated with the rest of the Autodesk portfolio. They also needed a solution that was easy to learn and easy to use. We took a good hard look at the technologies we had, the needs and feedback of our customers, and the feedback from a lot of potential customers. We started to reimagine the workflows that engineers need to complete to design their projects, and we started to look at what a modern analysis tool should provide and how it should behave.
Building on the proven and trusted foundation of Robot Structural Analysis Professional, which is used by tens of thousands of engineers on countless projects around the globe, we started to rebuild our analysis platform. We are excited to share the first results, which you can download and try today.
Why are we doing this now?
We want and need your feedback. This is an early look into what we are building. It is by no means complete and you will see things that are not enabled or maybe even missing. Rest assured, they will be coming. We will be providing frequent updates which will expose new functionality and features, incorporate your feedback, and fix issues that you identify. We will be asking for your opinions on the things we are working on, and we might even ask you to test out a workflow or two and give us some feedback on how it went for you. This is the opportunity to tell us what you need from your next analysis tool. Great customer feedback is one of the most important building blocks for a great software product.
