Getting Started#


The following configuration should be installed:

  • Autodesk Revit 2024

  • SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design for Revit 2024

  • SOFiSTiK FEA 2024

General Workflow#

The platform Autodesk Revit 2024 is started via the Program Manager or from the link on the desktop. There, a building is modelled including its analytical model, loads and boundary conditions using Revit native commands.

  • In the ribbon SOFiSTiK Analysis ‣ Project Settings define a design code for the project.

  • Enrich the analytical model using the SOFiSTiK Structural Properties panel and Utilities commands.

  • Check the three Mapping dialogues.

  • Conduct a complete verification of the entire model with the Check.

  • Run the command Start to generate and analyse the FE system and its loads.

Now the SSD button provides access to the SOFiSTiK Structural Desktop where further analysis and design tasks can be performed.


Additionally and/or alternatively, you can conduct integrated analysis, design and results evaluation directly within the Revit environment.

Getting Started Tutorial#

Get started with SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design for Revit 2024 by following the tutorial Reinforced Concrete Building in Revit available in the documentation SOFiSTiK (FEA) Tutorials.
