So I'm working with a local new development company focusing on high-end eco-friendly homes. These homes are steel framed, and are being done in Revit. The structural engineer is using RISA 3D, latest version.
We're able to export our Revit models to him via Revit Structure without issues via the RISA plug-in. It's a nice workflow, and it saves him a lot of time.
However, when we re-import his edited RISA model back into ours, we're getting strange problems with the model. It appears that the Analytical model is 100% right, with all the lines representing beams and such in the correct place. However, the beams themselves seem 'off'; some are sloping incorrectly (the start and end points appear off from the Analytical model) and many are rotated 90 degrees or more off the plane of the Analytical model altogether.
Wondering if this is due to our initial 'sketch' of a steel frame for the building that was pulled into RISA to begin with was too 'sloppy', or if there is something else going on. Also, wondering if there is an easy way to 'correct' our beams to get them to match the Analytical model 100%.
