Revit Link and internal Forces

Hi guys,

 

I'm trying to import member forces and reactions from Robot into Revit (both version 2012).

 

Is this functionality supported in Revit?  ie I want to be able to click on a beam in Revit and see the internal forces from the Robot analysis.  (reactions at supports too)

 

Rafal I'm thinking you must know of a way to do this via API if it can't be supported natively through the interface.  I could for example dump forces into excel and then pull them back into Revit somehow (to be appended to a beam tag for example??)

 

 

 

Cheers,

Tony.

Not that easy but bar end forces can be displayed: http://screencast.com/t/aPIUOjodwBkR

Unfortunatelly moment values are wrong in this approach. It is planned to be corrected in SP1 for  ARSA 2013

 

(reactions at supports too)

For now not possible

I think it should not be a problem to do it this way by RST API
