Update *.rtd from elements from other *.rtd files

Hi,

I want to do a loadtakedown calculation with my model from revit and I want to do calculations of my floors in another robot file, but keep the elements in both files linked. So that if I change the size or material in one file, the other on updates too.

Is this even possible? Is there another function that does something similar or shouldn't I even want to do this haha?  :smileyembarrassed:


Revit can update from an *.rtd file, why shouldnt Robot itself be able to?

Alex,

 

Try the following workflow:

 

1. Create model and run takedown analysis. Decide on sizes of elements that you want to focus at this stage and save the model

2. Select the floor (or any other part of the model) that you want to design separately and save it as substructure

3. Open such created file and run the design. Change sections, materials etc. and save the file

4. Update the main model with the modified substructure

 

I'm attaching the pictures that illustrate this workflow.
