  1. So after much delay and debating, probably for 3 months, i have officially subscribed to Autodesk AEC collection. I had been meeting ends with others drafting services for submittals and with an old version of Risa3D (13) but no more. I will use Revit, Advanced steel for my submittals and shop drawings and i will fully immerse myself into Robot Structural Analysis again as i havent visited it as much as wanted since senior design many years back! I was hoping to have Risa last night before bed, but after speaking with them their subscription is all paid upfront. :-( while doable, it was a big setback on my budget, even for just the three core software 3D, Floor ES , and Foundation. I will miss it. And im doing all shop drawing in house now. Anyone have experience with ROBOT Structural Analysis theyde like to share?
  2. Anyone using Revit? IF so what CPU are you using? I'm using it more and more, and I"m a little annoyed by the rendering time. I have an X99 i7 3.3Ghz along with 32GB ram and a 1080 GTX Nvidia Video card. I believe Revit uses the CPU for rendering and I"d like to up my speed for the process. Any recommendations?

    RISA-Revit Link

    We have a file that is crashing Revit 2016 midway through the export to RISA, using the RISA-Revit Link. All software is on the same machine and update to the latest version. I am currently working with RISA and Revit support departments. Any advice?
  4. Has anyone found success in transfterring from Revit to Risa? I have found all sorts of problems in the transfer - and I'm not optimistic that it will ever be nice. I'm a little concerned because the principal structural engineer may think it's an untapped benefit, and I hate to be the killer of progress...

    Revit Structure

    Well, our office just bought the whole Autodesk 2013 Suite, and it's daunting to say the least. We were just awarded a decent-sized project involving architects that only work with Revit consultants. (From personal experience - Revit and AutoCad don't mix) I was excited to import/export our RISA 3D program into Revit. I tried a 4-story SCBF building and built it on Friday afternoon with lots of assumptions, and everything imported pretty well with the new exchange file. We are trying to figure out a way to maximize Revit into some sort of detailing program (inventor?), but are struggling a bit. We don't want to spend lots of time figuring out a smooth workflow, so any comments are welcome. Thanks. ~ps~ We primarily work in heavy timber and structural steel buildings.
