Konstru supports Loads for Revit as well. But there are some important details:
Revit Hosted loads are translated into CSI loads.
Revit Non-hosted loads will be translated into RAM Loads.
CSI (Etabs and SAP2000)
In Revit Load Combinations, Cases and Patterns are slightly different. This is why CSI Load Patterns are being translated into Revit Load Cases and back.
Have a look at the table below to understand Revit - CSI Load translations:
|Point load||Point load
|Distributed Load||Linear Load
|Load Pattern||Load Case|
|Load Combination||Load Combination|
|Load Case||Not supported|
When using Revit loads we advice you to set either Forces or Moments. Please do not apply Forces and Moments at the same time. Create a second load instead, holding either force or moment.
RAM (non-hosted Revit loads)
Non-hosted Revit loads are turned into RAM loads and back. RAM does not require nor return Load Cases, Patterns or Combinations therefore Revit loads are translated 1:1 to RAM loads like this:
|Point load||Point Load
|Line Load||Linear Load
|Surface Load||Area Load
RAM Loads are always vertical, therefore Konstru takes only Forces (not Moments) in Z direction into account. Forces in X or Y direction are ignored.
