Revit Structure: RISA-Revit 2011 Link

Revit Structure users can leverage the power of BIM by synchronizing Revit Structure models with RISA-3D and/or RISAFloor.

This two-way link is compatible with Autodesk Revit Structure 2011 (both 32 and 64 bit versions) and allows you to transfer information more seamlessly than ever between Revit and RISAFloor or RISA-3D.
  • New models can be created in either Revit Structure or RISA software using the information available in the other program.
  • All geometric and design information including materials, family instances, walls, slabs, openings, grid lines, boundary conditions, footings, loads and load combinations can be created/updated/deleted in either of the two programs using the information available in the other program.
  • The new exchange file method allows continuity of data flow throughout the exchange cycle.
  • Users can add new elements and/or additional design to the RISA model and these changes will be retained in RISA while round-tripping.
  • The robust Excel based XML mapping file provides the capability to customize the processing of shapes, materials and load cases.
  • A log file is created during every export/import operation giving a synopsis on the number of elements translated and errors/warnings encountered, if any.

A free download is available for both RISAFloor and RISA-3D users. Visit www.risatech.com/revitstructure to download the new link now.
