User manual - tutorials

Status: New Idea
by Valued Contributor dimogrec on ‎01-09-2013 07:06 AM

I would be very useful to see a more detailed user manual with some complete step by step tutorials (especially RC buildings) as mentioned here


Also more verification manuals would be helpful.

Improved table editing in Robot

Status: New Idea
by espen.ruud on ‎02-11-2013 05:37 AM

Problem: The table editing tools in Robot are slow and have poor functionality. Usually it is better to copy the table to Excel and edit it there, but this can cause trouble (example: planar loads on contour becoming planar loads in my experience). Besides, for small changes this should not be neccessary.


Solution: Advanced table editing module or two way link to excel for all tables. Allows quick editing of tables, making changes to the model only when the user clicks apply.

Couple of useful ideas

Status: New Idea
by Active Contributor aprule16 on ‎06-25-2013 08:54 AM

1. Reinforcement drawings for inclined elements 

2. Punching for inclined elements

3. Wall opening reinforcement (RC wall module)

4. RC module for Corbel elements (brackets)

5. More steel connections ...

Keep it up, you're best!!!

Developp a plugin to import and refresh Rhino model made from the Grasshopper component.

It allows complex parametric design with a minimum of code and it tends to be quite popular amoung the design community. It can be also used for formfindding problem etc ...

Please see : http://www.grasshopper3d.com/ and http://geometrygym.blogspot.fr/ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAuH6Nu63nA


Some project are currently under developpement and I think Autodesk team shall be part of it or open a project like Octopus on that.

geometry and interoperability

Stories Tables :

1.reduced forces should be given either,  by each storie, and cumulative from stories above (same as displacement). these effort to be given at the bottom of the storie.


Loads :

1.Copying storie from a level to another shoud copy all element belonging to it,  especially  loads  affected to its elements , regardless the way it was defined ( loads on contour , linear loads …)

2.indicating the value of load when draging  the mouse over.


Export to RC design :

1.Names assigned manually to elements in RSA should be retrieved when exported to correspondant RC design.

2.adding preference of soil definition and optimisation pattern to be applicated to set of Foundation at once

API access to Phases

Status: New Idea

I get the impression that phases aren't really used by anyone in "real life", but I want to! But I can't! Because, so far, the API has absolutely no access to phases, a fact that is a real shame.

US Codes

Add US codes to all design modules.

It would be awesome if Robot had the option of designing connections according to the AISC provisions. Also It would be great if one could create automatic connections for EBF and CBF's.

AutoCad Geometry Generation

Status: New Idea
by Contributor kyp321 on ‎02-20-2014 09:24 AM

It would be very convinient if a Autodesk could create a AutoCAD 3D plug in that would allow users to actively create/change geometry in ROBOT !!


That would eliminate alot of meshing and other errors and create a whole new range of possibilities that could make the process more streamlined!


Please contact me if you want me to elaborate on this idea!
