Introduction#

SOFiSTiK Analytical Model Generator allows you to generate your Autodesk® Revit® 2024 analytical model to create a working 3D Finite Element model for structural analysis. An otherwise tedious, time-consuming task becomes a matter of minutes with the help of our Wizard which guides you through the process.

The generation of the Finite Element model is started directly within Revit. According to the analysis task at hand, pre-defined configurations enables you to choose an optimization that best fits your needs. More experienced users can create their configuration and adjust the parameters for the optimization setting individually.

SOFiSTiK Analytical Model Generator is a stand-alone product and can be used to improve your analyticial model for any structural analysis software including vendors other than SOFiSTiK.
