Documentation of SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design¶
SOFiSTiK is Europe’s leading manufacturer of construction software for analysis, design, and detailing. Over 2,000 customers worldwide use the company’s solutions to build large and complex infrastructure and buildings or implement special projects. These include the Bosporus Bridge in Istanbul and the new Leverkusen Bridge spanning the Rhine. Visit our Website to know more about us.
SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design allows to generate a 3D Finite-Element model from an Autodesk® Revit® analytical model including loads and boundary conditions.
The generation of the Finite Element model can be started directly from within Revit.
Additional commands allow to control the mapping of materials, sections and load natures or to check the analytical model prior to meshing. Using the SOFiSTiK Structural Properties, building members in Revit can be attributed with additional analysis properties such as grouping information, meshing properties on an element level or boundary hinges on walls and slabs. Immediate review of the generated Finite Element Model and results is possible with SOFiSTiK Visualization and the command Show Results.
SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design also provides a number of auxiliary commands. In particular, it allows to generate so-called “Subsystems” based on Revit views (“Subsystem Views”) for a detailed analysis of partial models.
For an overview of SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design current webinars and events, please visit our product page.
Users of SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design with interface to SOFiSTiK FEA can access the SOFiSTiK Structural Desktop (SSD). There, further analysis, enveloping and design can be performed according to various standards and codes.
They can also open SOFiSTiK Graphic directly from Revit.
