Bar length zero

I've exported part of a steel roof from and old revit model, but are having some problems making it run. The geometry have been manually corrected and stray members cleaned out, but during verification I'm received a persistent 'Bar length zero' error. The bars highlighted can be seen to clearly not be of zero length, and the properties also report it to have length. Any way of forcing Robot to wake up recognise the actual length the geometry of these bars represent?


I've attached the model for comparison. No, it is not the final model, so releases and supports have to be corrected further.

1. Select all model (CTRL+ A)

2. Run intersection

3. Display Bars table and sort it by length

4. Select nodes that define the 0 length bars

5. Return to the original model and correct positions of these nodes
