I work in an engineering office where Autodesk products are not well known. Lately the senior engineer suggested moving to Autodesk products. In order to do that, Architectures are using Revit architecture and structural engineers will have the responsibility to make analytical models. After making analytical model the model is moved to Robot so we can analyze and design members. After finishing the design of each member we will update the model in Revit.
The procedure written above was done.
Every time we updated the model this message appears: “Rebar is placed completely outside of its host”. I tried it many time in different examples and the problem still happening.
I hope you can help me.
It's basically to do with the way that your beam family is set up in Revit. See in this picture the blue line is defined outside the shape (user defined beam family).
Compare with a beam exported from Robot, the sweep line is at the centroid.
This is why the reo is going outside the beam, as the reference line is in the wrong place.
Thank you for your help
|Infact what i am talking about differs somehow; not only reinforcemnt is not within the host, Indeed reinforcemnt lies in places where beams are not existing. You can figure what i am talking about by looking to the attached picture.
Waiting to hear from you,
Kindly find the attached simple 3D model for a frame system (columns and beams- No slabs). This problem is general; simple model or any other complex projects I work on have the same problem. the attached model can be analyzed on robot under self weight only since I did not define any load to the frame system. when trying to export this model to robot and backward to Revit the same problem previously explained happened.
I sent You the model that I talk about yesterday. Hopefully you can discover the problem so I can make a progress in the workflow between Revit and Robot.
This situation for multispan beams
Workaround: design spans separately (one span beams) or delete wrong reinforcement in case of multispan beams designed in Robot in Revit
While I am exploring videos about the integration between Revit and Robot I found this one:
In this video and exactly at 3:00, I found that beams reinforcement were exported from Robot to Revit and the results seem to be correct; i.e. reinforcement lies on their host beams. The Video did not mentioned anything about bugs and what I conclude that it is possible to have the integration between Revit and Robot without any problem.
MY QUESTION: Is the bug You mentioned is related to 2014 version? or the bug is general for any edition of Revit? If the answer is that the bug is general and not only for 2014 version so how the tutorial contain clean results?
Note: Attached to my reply a .jpg picture from the mentioned video
