About this app
Revit, the renowned building information modeling (BIM) software, has been widely used in architectural design. However, when it comes to bridge design and detailing, engineers have been looking for a comprehensive solution that seamlessly integrates with Revit. Enter SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler 2023, a powerful Revit plugin that not only supports BIM in bridge design but also enhances collaboration among architects, engineers, and construction professionals.
Parametrized 3D Bridge Models with Ease
One of the standout features of SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler is its ability to create parametrized 3D bridge models using alignment parameters and generic families in Revit. This parametric modeling approach allows for quick iteration and case studies, reducing planning time and cost. The best part is that the parameterization remains consistent throughout the entire design and construction process, ensuring accuracy and efficiency.
Flexible Content and Customization
In addition to the software itself, SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler provides a vast library of generic families for super- and substructure creation. These families can be easily modified or created from scratch to meet local and company standards. Whether it's the intricate details of the superstructure or the functional elements of the substructure, the plugin allows engineers to customize every aspect of the bridge design.
Moreover, this plugin also enables the creation of bridge equipment elements such as parapets and railings. With just a few clicks, engineers can generate these crucial components, further enhancing the accuracy and completeness of the bridge model.
Effortless Detailing and Documentation
SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler takes the pain out of detailing and documenting bridge structures. The plugin automatically generates section views, top views, longitudinal sections, and elevation points, assisting users in capturing every nuance of the design. Dimensions, alignment information, and other essential details are seamlessly integrated into these views, ensuring clarity and accuracy in the documentation process.
Furthermore, users can easily access quantities such as length, area, and volume from the super- and substructure. This additional functionality empowers engineers to perform full structural design within the plugin itself, eliminating the need for external calculation tools. The integration of structural design and BIM in a single platform streamlines the entire design process and enhances collaboration among all stakeholders.
Support and Beyond
SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler not only offers a powerful set of features but also provides excellent support to its users. The plugin's homepage acts as a comprehensive resource hub, offering online documentation, user forums, tutorial movies, and other valuable information. Whether you have questions about license options or need assistance with the plugin, the team at SOFiSTiK is readily available to help.
SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler 2023 is a game-changer for bridge design and detailing in the world of BIM. Its parametric modeling capabilities, flexible content library, effortless detailing features, and comprehensive support make it a must-have tool for engineers and architects working on infrastructure projects. By seamlessly integrating with Revit, this plugin fosters collaboration and streamlines the entire design process. If you're looking to enhance your bridge design workflow and unlock new possibilities, it's time to try out SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler.
