Konstru Revit can up and download analytical geometry for beams, braces and columns. In many cases Revit's analytical geometry is better connected than the physical one. Uploading analytical geometry might be beneficial if you want to bring your Revit model into an analysis platform which requires a connected model.
Konstru will simply read the analytical curve instead of the physical centerline and use it as the member's centerline. If you activate analytical geometry Konstru will read:
- Analytical Curve of Beams and Braces
- Analytical Curve of Columns
- Analytical Wall Height of Walls:
Konstru will try to determine the wall height from the analytical wall geometry, which usually is a rectangle. Konstru determines the wall height in this case by getting the shortest distance from the bottom line's mid point to the top line.
If you are analytical geometry is checked on downloading a model Konstru will leave Revit's physical geometry untouched and update only analytical curves of Beams, Braces and Columns. Konstru will not update Walls in this case.
To activate analytical geometry simply check the analytical geometry checkbox in the Konstru dialog (see below). Once you checked this option Konstru will remember your setting the next time you are up or downloading the same model.
