Hi all, my company want to start using Robot analysis with Revit.

I have Revit on my machine and my colleague has Robot on his, would we be able to do the analysis or do we both have to have both Robot & Revit on our machines to import / export the data, and If so how do we do it?

basic requirements in short:

1/ Necessary to install Revit Structure and Robot of the same version (for instance 2011) on the same machine

2/ Necessary to download and install Revit Structure Extensions for appropriate version of Revit from Subscription Center

3/ After installation the link is available from Revit: It is visible as Integration with Robot Structural Analysis in Add-Ins> Extensions Manager (RST 2011)

4/ If Robot license is not available on the machine with Revit and Robot cannot be run there then it is necesary to run the link activating "Use Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis RTD file" check-box. It will result in exporting/importing directly to/from RTD file without opening Robot.

It is also possible to use License Transfer Utility to temporarily transfer Robot license to machine with Revit
