To facilitate the mapping of concrete sections, it may help if you have the various Revit Structure sections already loaded before you import your ETabs model into Revit. The next step was to let the CSi Exchange tool do all the work, after all the CSi documentation does say that:. I just posted a version of the tools with this feature included. In the past I have written posts about the links between Revit and CSC Fastrak and the links between Revit and Robot these posts have generally pointed out more problems than solutions. It’s a good app.

Unfortunately, this post is more of the same. Equivalent Revit Structure sections will be automatically created and mapped See note 1 Note 1. In the past I csixrevit written posts csixrevit the links between Revit and CSC Fastrak and the links between Revit and Robot these posts have generally pointed out more problems than solutions.
Csixrevit CSiXRevit cannot easily map the names, then you can set the mapping at time of import. My initial idea was to simply import the ETabs model into Revit using our default template file and see what the results are.
The third attempt was complete with 13, element join warnings, and a total of warnings from CSiXRevit itself. This would allow me to see whether or not the CSiRevit tool could automatically create framing members as suggested above. View the wishlist Continue exploring. So far it only works SI units.

In this csixrevi I am going to take csixrevit through my findings when going from ETabs to Revit. Will be mapped to equivalent Revit Csixrevit sections. The ETabs model contained 18, individual members. Will be loaded if not already loaded. Good tool but not compatible with Revit Besides this issue it is a great app.
I wish this app would have the ability to convert in Imperial units. This means you could easily have 3 concrete beams that are exactly the same size, but all have different names because csixrevit material is different.
The next step was to let the CSi Exchange tool do all the csixrevit, after all the CSi documentation does say that:.
CSiXRevit? Anyone? Bueller?
Very useful to me. It’s a great app. The third and final csixrevit was to create every single element type that csixreit contained in the ETabs model, the trick for automatic mapping of elements is to create the element within Revit and make sure the name is exactly the same as the name within ETabs, or so i thought…….
It’s a good app. This plug-in also has some other functions which structural csixrevit would find useful.
Click Here to download directly or copy the download URL to your download csixrevit For larger files, to use a download manager is highly recommended. This will be available soon. Its a great tool ans easy to use. Steel Sections Will be mapped to equivalent Revit Csixrevit sections.
I just posted csixrevit version of the tools with this feature included. Nasser Marafi Publisher March 14, There is a table in the CSi guide that shows the naming of the families that have to be loaded into the Revit template prior to import, these are essentially the out of the box families.
Very nice well done!! I still maintain a csixrevit that the bi-directional link between analysis packages and Revit will csixrevit work fluently, this was exposed when I trialled Revit and Robot csixrevit, it can be read about in the post above, and there are extensive discussions from myself on AUGI. The few concrete members that mapped automatically were all the same size and all other framing members were steel. A great addition would be having the ability to translate the model from the Revit origin so that in ETABS the origin is in a logical location.
