Revit to Robot distortion of analytical elements

Hello,

 

I was wondering if someone could help me out. Despite my best efforts, I cannot get the Analytical Model from my revit file to come in correctly into Robot.

 

When I try to transfer the model over, some elements are missing, columns are shifted over, beams are shifted over, connections are lost, and everything seems to be jumbled. This is shown easily by looking at the top views of the Revit Analytical Model and the Robot Model. The roof joists are all over the place in the robot model, when they should be 2' spacing O.C. 

 

I also attached the copy of the events report from sending the model from Revit to Robot. As you can see, there are a few "Degenerated Model" warnings. I was wondering if that has something to do with the problem

 

If anyone could tell me why this happenning or how to correctly transfer the model over, I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Thanks, in advance

Sorry, I know it's a dumb question.. What email should I send it to? The file is 3MB after purging, deleting the file history and zipping it; so I can't attach it to the post.

 

Thanks,
