Project Storm for Revit Structure is a free technology preview that provides cloud-based structural analysis so engineers and designers can extend design models from Revit Structure to the Autodesk Cloud for structural analysis from directly within Revit Structure. Results can then be visualized and explored within Revit Structure and disruptions to workflows are minimized by performing analysis in the cloud as users continue to design.
On Tuesday I posted an update to the Autodesk Labs site. Software Development Manager, Marek Wiecek, let me know that the latest version of Project Storm for Revit Structure includes the following enhancements:
Define "Analysis Profile" before conducting analysis:
Users can now select "Analysis profile" before running structural analysis, and it can be defined as Draft, Normal or Fine. Selecting "Analysis Profile" has a direct impact on the analysis rate and results accuracy on walls and floors.
With adjustments to the system infrastructure, performance improvements can be realized.
UI is optimized:
To help guide the analysis process and to give progress integrations throughout, "current steps" indicators have been added to Project Storm to allow for information to be provided at each step of the analysis and results gathering process.
Welcoming the stormy road ahead is alive in the lab.
