SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler – Getting Started

The SOFiSTiK Bridge and Infrastructure Modeler for Autodesk Revit App helps you create 3-dimensional infrastructure geometries directly inside Autodesk Revit and provides tools for developing shop drawings.

During this Getting Started, you will get guided through the significant steps of a typical Infrastructure project in AutoDesk Revit: creating or importing an axis alignment, defining the superstructure and substructure, and developing shop drawings.

Creating the Axis

In this video, you will learn how to create an axis within Autodesk Revit using the SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler. Here’s a breakdown:

  • Creating the Axis
  • Adjusting Input Units
  • Using Quick Edit
  • Importing External Axis

Defining the Superstructure

In this video, you’ll learn how to create a parametric superstructure in the SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler for Revit. You will utilise the already created axis alignment and assign a variable two-dimensional cross-section Revit Family.

  • The SOFiSTiK: Superstructure task
  • The Duplicate command
  • Define the cross-section variation
  • Assign the cross-section variable to the axis alignment.

Defining the Substructure

Through step-by-step instructions, you will learn essential skills for efficiently creating and customising substructures in your bridge and infrastructure projects using the SOFISTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler for Revit.

  • Selecting a substructure from the library.
  • Using the multiselection with the substructure Edit command.
  • How to rotate a single substructure Revit Family.
  • Rotation of substructures.
  • Duplicate substructure objects using the SOFISTIK: Substructure dialogue.
  • Use the Cut Geometry command to cut the bearing family to avoid overlapping geometry.

Developing Shop Drawings

In this video, you will learn to create detailed shop drawings using the powerful combination of Revit and the SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler Commands.

  • Create Cross-Section representations
  • Create a Plan View representation
  • Create Evaluation points
  • Create a Longitudinal Section
