ENERCALC For Revit

ENERCALC for Autodesk™ Revit™ simplifies structural design by bridging the gap between calculation and documentation. It allows engineers to access the familiar power of ENERCALC SEL as a seamless real-time extension of your Revit environment. ENERCALC's use of the Revit API results in fast-paced, intuitive design with no import/export process.

Here's a peek at a steel girder design being launched from Revit. Revit geometry data are used to instantaneously generate a complete Steel Beam calculation in ENERCALC SEL. Code-checks are reviewed in SEL and any design changes (i.e., section size, etc.) are automatically passed back to Revit when the calculation is saved. Color coded highlighting in Revit views provide easy review of completion status and code check pass/fail information passed from ENERCALC.

 

ENERCALC For Autodesk Revit® session at Autodesk University 2021

Structural engineers are quite familiar with the disconnect between design and documentation tools. Construction documents have our engineering analysis in their DNA. Despite this connection, we create these documents using tools that don't share information. The impact of this disconnect ranges from mild inconvenience to profit-crushing time sinks. What if our tools could "talk" to one another? Imagine structural modeling, interdisciplinary coordination, engineering analysis, design, and final documentation creation on a unified platform. Given today's powerful BIM (Building Information Modeling) environments, this workflow isn't a dream.
