Very new to Revit Structure and will be getting ASD as well soon. My beginners queation is.....
Is ASD complety seperate from Revit Structure and you have to export to Revit? Or does ASD sit within Revit if you have it?
Am I correct in understanding that you can detail structural elements within Revist Structure, but you can only add connections while using ASD, or is there a bolt on to Revit Structure to allow you to add connections there?
ASD is AutoCAD based software and it is stand-alone software.
It's purpose is to create details of reinfoced concrete structures and workshop drawings for steel structures.
Revit is completely different software and it's primary use is for architecture.
You can, however, export some structures or structure elements from Revit to ASD. In theory.
You can't do detailing of steel structures in Revit, it's doesn't have appropriate tools ('yet' says Autodesk).
And you can model some 3D reinforcement in Revit, but it's still very limited.
