What's new in Revit Structure 2014: Structural Analytical Model Improvements

As you know, identifying and resolving issues such as unconnected beams, isolated nodes, and other inconsistencies, when transferring the Revit Structure model into a structural analysis program, is very important and yet time consuming and tricky. Revit Structure 2014 has some great new tools that will help with speedier resolution of these issues. These tools are:

By Default, each node now has a read only property which enables the user to see the connectivity of the node.

The standard Structural Template now contains 2 filters that will help with being able to easily identify issues with the Analytical Revit model

The Wall Adjustment tool now has improved functionality where in you can now also adjust analytical walls in relation to nodes of analytical floors and analytical foundation slabs
