Above is my first functional C# revit add-in, making bending rebar at any angle an easy task. For those non-structural engineers, the smaller the piece of rebar, the smaller the allowable bend. Being able to quickly sketch rebar to scale with minimum bend radii is ...
Making a revit addin has been a goal of mine for some time. Yesterday I finally succeeded, complete with ridiculous names, images and tasks completed.
The addin is simple and essentially useless, it assigns walls of a certain type to a workset (Github).
I have inherited an awesome project through the most unfortunate circumstances, the loss of a great engineer moving onto bigger and brighter pastures.
The project is going to be an ASCE 41 non-linear dynamic analysis and has had geotech engineers involved in picking out ground motion that represent similar ground motions that the ...
One feature that I like to use in ETABs is the section cut tool, but it is quite cumbersome to utilize in practice:
Notice how you have to enter (4) valid points to define a section cut... a time consuming process. I love to ...
The website has three updates
- New (hopefully easier to view) layout
- Slugified URLs
- Images that enlarge on click
1 - New (hopefully easier to view) layout
This one was by far the hardest for me to achieve, but hopefully makes the site easier to read on mobile. I ...

I will work to get metric units incorporated, that's a great idea.
On your second point, I think something like that could be done, it's just a bit awkward with how CSI currently has it setup. In order to make section cuts, I need to unlock the model, ...

Awesome work S&T!
Firstly, I'd recommend if you're going to feature the tool on CSI's website then maybe incorporate metric units (aka real units!)
Secondly, I'm wondering if there would be a way to set up the workflow using something akin to RAM Concept design strips. Perhaps the strip width ...

My understanding is that for a 5-story building you would have:
- (1) load case A (ELF)
- (1) load case B for each level except the roof so total (4)
- therefore (4) load combos for diaphragm design
I believe the intent is to envelope higher mode actions as you mentioned ...
