NEW FEATURES IN EXISTING MODULES
NEW FEATURES IN BIM
Additional import options
New options are available for importing an IFC model: Overwrite, Add, Update.
Support of Revit 2024
The supported file versions have been extended with Revit 2024.
AXISVM transfers the model data using the API interface of Revit (Revit 2019 or a newer version is required).
Export of actual reinforcement to Revit 2023 and 2024
With the enhanced transfer the following data and elements are exported:
► Beam elements with their material and cross-section properties
► domains with their material properties
► actual reinforcements
► the analytical model
New interface for V6.0 Rhino/Grasshopper
New features and options available in GrasshopperToAxisVM V6.0:
► component for definition of parametric cross-sections
► XLAM domain, references, and component to define spring characteristics
► node-to-node and line-to-line link elements
► additional load options (seismic, snow, wind, fluid, support displacement…)
► launching AxisVM analysis from Grasshopper (linear and nonlinear static, vibration, buckling, and seismic analysis)
► creating steel members
► creating timber members
New interface for V3.0 Revit/Dynamo
The components available in the new interface support all AXISVM element and load types.
NEW FEATURES IN THE BASIC PACKAGES
Fire design of RC domains
The new RC8-S module provides the capability of fire design of RC domains according to Eurocode 2, SIA 262, and NTC standards. RC8-B (released in AxisVM X6) and RC8-S modules provide a comprehensive tool for the fire design of reinforced concrete structures. Considering the fire design parameters of the domains, the software calculates the temperature distribution within the cross-section and takes into account the delamination of the outer damaged concrete layers and the temperature of the flexural reinforcement.
Modelling the interaction between soil and structure
The new SOIL module enables more accurate modelling of the interaction between soil and structure. The analysis of the coupled model allows the stresses and deformations in the soil to be investigated, as well as the effect of soil deformation on the structure. Based on the given borehole patterns, the program is able to generate a soil model built from 3D elements and to automatically determine the Winkler stiffness of the supports.
