Releases of linear elements

All linear analytical elements are exported from Revit to FEM-Design along with the settings of Top Release and Bottom Release. The exact definition of the three predefined releases: Pinned, Fixed, Bending Moment as well as User Defined release are exported to FEM-Design.

Example

Figure below shows release conditions originally set in Revit and the result of the export to FEM-Design.

Edge connections

Revit does not give an option to apply edge connections (releases) to edges of shells (slabs and walls). But with our dedicated tool Wall edge connections, it is possible to apply predefined edge connections to walls in Revit and export them along with the element to struxml.
