The SOFiSTiK FEA Extension allows to generate a 3D Finite-Element model from an Autodesk® Revit® analytical model including loads and boundary conditions. Additional structural properties that affect analyses such as line hinges at slab edges or any type of analytic link conditions can be input into Revit and interpreted by the FEA Extension. Further features allow to generate subsystems from Revit views or directly from levels, consider the load transfer and to perform member design for columns according to Eurocode. Using the SOFiSTiK Structural Desktop (SSD), analysis, enveloping, design and dimensioning for the FE systems can be performed according to various standards and codes.
