Export report

Last modified by Iwona Budny Bjergø on 2023/07/03 09:46

After a Revit model is exported to struxml, an Export Report button will become active In the StruXml Export dialog.


Upon pressing the Export Report button, the Extended Report dialog will appear. Report is based on listing of elements in three groups. User can decide according to which criterion the elements should be listed in each of the groups. 

One can chose between:

  • Exported: elements are grouped based on the fact if they were successfully exported or not.
  • Name: elements are grouped by the elements group name, e.g. Beam, Column, Grid line, etc.
  • Type: elements are grouped by the type of the family instance.
  • ID: elements are grouped by the ID number.
  • Message: elements are grouped by the type of the message / warning message.

Upon clicking in the small triangular symbol next to each group of elements listed in the report, this group can be minimized. Three different examples are presented below:

Exported --> Name --> Type

In the first group, elements are grouped by Exported into exported (94 elements) and not exported elements (16). Then elements are grouped by Name. There are 8 beams exports, 20 columns, 4 floors, 9 grid lines, etc. There are
also 16 walls that were not exported. Finally, the elements are grouped by Type. We can see that out of 8 beams that were exported, 6 of them were of a type 250 x 500mm and 2 of them 400 x 800mm, etc. We can also see that there were two types of walls that were not exported and the reason for that was the lack of analytical model.


Name --> Exported --> Type

Elements in a first place are grouped by name. Afterward, they are split into elements of this group that were exported and those that were not.  In the last step, they are divided into types. For instance, we can see there were 48 walls, out of which 32 were exported and 16 were not exported due to lack of analytical model. We can also see how many walls of which type were and were not exported.


Name --> Type --> Exported

The last example shows how to arrange elements if you want to see how many elements of a given type were exported and how many were not. One can see that there were 8 walls of a given type, 4 of them were exported and 4 of them failed due to lack of analytical model.


Save the report

Upon pressing the Save to file button, one can save the generated report into txt file. The .txt file can be nicely open in WordPad / Word or any Internet browser. We do not recommend opening it in Notepad, as the structure of the report is not preserved.

In order to open the .txt file in other instance than Notepad, right click on the file and chose Open with. Then select the desired program (WordPad, Word, Internet browser, etc.). Be aware that when you export the report into a file, all the groups will be maximized displaying all elements listed below each group. However, you can easily modify the report in the text editor and remove the unnecessary lines before printing the report.
