In this video, SOFiSTiK results from a Finite Element Analysis are saved as Result Packages in the Revit file (*.rvt). This Result Package are read with Autodesk® Application: Structural Analysis Toolkit and displayed on the model in Revit.

Before starting, make sure that the slab of the Subsystem Level 6 has already been generated and calculated as you can see by opening the animator System Visualization. Moreover, make sure it was also designed using the slab_design Slab Design function.

To import SOFiSTiK results in Revit, click on SOFiSTiK Analysis > Group Results > fea_import Result import. The Import Dialog opens.

In the first tab, you can define for which elements you want to import results. The selection can either be manual or automatic. The automatic selection selects all elements having results and visible in the current Revit view. In this video, we use the automatic selection.

Go to the second tab: import_analysis Analysis results. Make sure that the checkbox Data source is active. Choose the SOFiSTiK database from which you want to import the analysis results. Using the SHIFT key of your keyboard, select the load cases you want to import. You can import Forces and moments and/or Displacement results. Tick the corresponding checkboxes. Finally adjust the name of your analysis result package, for example: Top floor - Analysis.

Now, go in the third tab: import_design Design results. Make sure that the check box Data source is active. Choose the SOFiSTiK database from which you want to import the design results as well as the design case. Adjust the name of your design result package, for example: Top floor - Design.

Finally, start the import by validating with OK.

Select the package and click on explore Results Explorer to open Revit’s Results Explorer. For example, you can now display the displacement in Z direction of the floor for the different load cases, or the quantity of required lower reinforcement in X direction.
