SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design

SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design allows to generate a 3D Finite-Element model from an Autodesk® Revit® analytical model including loads and boundary conditions. The generation of the Finite Element Model can be started directly from within Revit. Additional commands allow to control the mapping of materials, sections and load natures or to check the analytical model prior to meshing.

Using the SOFiSTiK Structural Properties Tab the building members in Revit can be attributed with additional analysis properties in addition to the Revit Properties Tab. It allows for example to set grouping information, to control meshing properties on an element level or to assign boundary hinges on walls and slabs.

Immediate review of the generated Finite Element Model and results is possible by starting i_animator_revit the System Visualization. Detailed review of the results is possible directly within Revit by importing the FEA results as a Revit Result Package.

SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design also provides a number of auxiliary commands allowing for example to check Revit’a analytical model or to generate so called ‘’Subsystem’’ based on Revit views (‘’Subsystem Views’’) for a detailed analysis of partial models.


Users of SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design with interface to SOFiSTiK FEA can access i_wingraf_revit Graphic directly from Revit. They can also open the SOFiSTiK Structural Desktop i_ssd (SSD) to conduct further analysis and design tasks.
