The bidirectional integration of ROBOT Millennium enables Revit Structure users to carry out both regular and advanced analysis on any kind of building structure using the same model throughout the design and analysis process. This approach helps to maintain the integrity of the model, improve accuracy and efficiency, and is much less prone to errors caused by transferring between different modeling and analysis systems.
Autodesk launched Revit Structure to advance the concept of building information modeling (BIM) into the structural engineering industry. BIM is a building design and documentation methodology that involves the creation of a single, reliable, coordinated and consistent digital representation of a structure, which can be analyzed, altered and captured for documentation. The integration of Revit Structure with ROBOT Millennium, enabling users to analyze and code check as a seamless part of the modeling process, is a crucial part of BIM for structural engineering.
Olimpio DeMarco, Product Marketing Manager for Structural Solutions at Autodesk comments: "RoboBAT quickly took advantage of the Revit API to create a bidirectional link with ROBOT Millennium for the initial release of Revit Structure. We are pleased to be working with RoboBAT as we expand our solution options for structural engineers."
ROBOT Millennium is currently used by more than 8,000 structural engineers worldwide, who have chosen the system for its power and reliability as well as its ease of use. The software offers a complete structural analysis solution, featuring frame analysis, FEM plates, shells and solid elements, together with code checks, dynamic analysis, cables and both geometric and nonlinear analysis plus many other advanced features. The straightforward GUI allows the user to analyze complex structures quickly and accurately.
ROBOT Millennium and Revit Structure are ideally suited to each other, as Gary Wyatt, International Sales and Marketing Director for RoboBAT explains: "The concept of BIM is that a single model is used across design disciplines. We are confident that our software can analyze almost any configuration of structural geometry that Revit Structure can produce, thereby ensuring that the integrity of the BIM is maintained without manual manipulation of the model."
RoboBAT will be showcasing the ROBOT Millennium software in seminars across North America in late summer and fall. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.revit.robobat.com.
