CASE Interoperability: Structural Workflow

While the majority of my recent posts have shown off some of our interoperability tools from a designer's perspective, they also have massive benefits for engineering workflows.

We have found that our structural engineering clients see a high level of value in using an iterative tool, like Grasshopper, to build models and iterate with their analysis tools.  Using these workflows as a basis, the CASE tools can then help to translate these into Revit-based structural elements.

Here are some screenshots of the process... What do you think?  Let us know!
