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.

 

What does ENERCALC for Revit offer the engineer?

Using ENERCALC for Revit, you can:

  1. Instantly build a complete structural calculation by simply clicking a Revit element,
  2. Perform design of structural components, and
  3. Automatically update the Revit model to match the resulting structural design.
  4. Leverage rich Revit-based visuals as you conveniently manage calculations, overview design status, and track ongoing changes to the BIM model.

Frequently asked questions

Answers to frequently asked ENERCALC For Revit™ questions are available in the ENERCALC For Revit section of the ENERCALC FAQ

 

What does ENERCALC for Revit require?

You need an active ANNUAL subscription to ENERCALC SEL.

You need a licensed copy of Revit 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, or 2023. Autodesk does not permit the use of addins (like ENERCALC for Revit) with Revit LT.

We suggest using a computer robust enough to easily run Revit, as you will be running Revit, ENERCALC, & ENERCALC for Revit simultaneously.

Note: Autodesk Revit is not included with your EFR subscription.

 

Pricing

EFR is $899 per year for the first 2 seats, and each additional seat is $899 per year.

 

How does the subscription work?

EFR subscriptions automatically renew each year unless you cancel.

When you buy an EFR subscription, you may choose any number of seats from a minimum of 2 up to a maximum of the seats in your annual SEL subscription.

For example:

  • If you have 3 SEL seats and you want to add EFR to your subscription, you may license either 2 or 3 EFR seats.
  • If you have 8 SEL seats and you want to add EFR to your subscription, you may license 2 EFR seats, 8 EFR seats, or any number in between.

EFR subscriptions start and end on the same date as your SEL subscription. This keeps things simple and in sync.

As with our other software, full no-hassle refunds are available for 30 days after your initial EFR purchase.

 

How to subscribe to ENERCALC For Revit (EFR)

EFR subscription purchasing is not currently integrated into our online store. To purchase a subscription, please contact Jennifer at info@enercalc.com. If you are an existing user, Jennifer at info@enercalc.com will provide you with exact prorated pricing for the first year.

 

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.
