Hi

 

Plant 3D export structure under SDNF format.

But it seems than Revit Stucture and Structural Detailling are not able to read this format.

Hello,

 

AutoCAD Plant 3D 2011 allows you to save files in SDNF format. The software assigns to its files the extension "*. SDNF". Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis allows to open such files, but when they have the extension "*. s" or "*. sdf". So just rename the file created by AutoCAD Plant 3D to give him an extension "*. s" or "*. sdf". This will allow Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis to read this file without problem.

 

Regards.

 

Emmanuel.

If you get the 'extensions' for Revit Structure pack from the subscription advantage pages then you will be able to import/export sdnf files (sdnf out from plant3d - then sdnf import in revit - then ASD link from revit to steel detailing)

It's occured because in Plant3D you need to work in line view of structure (no "shape"). Because when you create the new memeber and in the shape visualization lengthen this memeber, the "control" line is not lengthen. That's why in shape view the structure has good visualization and in line not... And when you export to revit the plug-in use the "control"line of memeber (not virtual which is lenthen)

 You can modificated your structure in the plant3D, changed the visualization mode (the first in the list)
