GRAITEC BIM CONNECT – From Advance Design to REVIT


Graitec BIM Connect is the latest BIM technology available from Graitec enabling structural models created in GRAITEC BIM software to be exported to Autodesk REVIT applications.

In this example a Reinforced Concrete structure with several steel members, was created in  ADVANCE Design. The structural elements are organized into different groups, each one representing a different level. This model also contains a number of different load cases which are also grouped by their load type.

Notice that all the frames, slabs and walls are concrete while the vertical bracings are defined with steel cross sections.

Using the standard transfer functions available in all Graitec Software, this structural model will be exported using our unique Graitec BIM *.gtcx format; a light-weight file  which can be shared with other systems using our free GRAITEC BIM Connect technology.

With Graitec BIM Connect installed in Autodesk Revit Suite and available under in the Add-Ins Tab you can see that the same file can be quickly transferred to Revit.

After the transfer is complete the structural model is imported preserving all its original geometry. Especially important to notice is that all the sections have been automatically converted to their corresponding Revit families defined in the Autodesk Revit Suite, creating a true Revit model. The loads & load cases have also been fully transferred.

Graitec BIM Connect allows model data to be shared in both directions so an Autodesk REVIT model can also be imported into any GRAITEC Advance Software.

Even more powerful is the unique ability to synchronize these models across different applications – only possible with Graitec BIM Connect.
