Requirements before importing a FEM-Design model to Revit.

In Revit:

  • All the steel and some of the unusual concrete section and materials, wall and floor types and foundation element types that are equivalent to the elements and materials existing in the FEM-Design model, has to be included in the Revit project, or proper families and types should be created there prior to mapping.

  • There has to be at least one level defined in the Revit project into which a FEM-Design model will be imported, or at least one storey has to be included in the imported FEM-Design model. It is required because elements in Revit have to be placed on a level or with a certain reference to a level.


In FEM-Design:

  • Save the FEM-Design model as struxml file. Go to File --> Save as --> type a name in the File name field --> chose *.struxml in the Save as type field --> Save.
