Upgrade from previous versions

Since Version 2020, SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design ignores foundation elements when generating the Finite Element Model. Please make sure your analytical model has Boundary Condition Elements to avoid instability issues during analyses.

In Revit 2019, the data structure used by SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design for related files has been modified. To comply with the new structure, when upgrading Revit projects from Version 2018 and earlier, the software will resquest to move all project related files under a hidden folder called .SOFiSTiK. This folder is automatically created in the directory where the Revit project (file *.rvt) is saved.
