How Konstru Saves Time

Posted on 18 September 2017 by Thornton Tomasetti

Imagine you are working on a project in the UAE and you have to deliver an ETABS model for regulators. Or you want to build an analysis model in SAP from an existing Tekla model. What would be your take on this?

  • Exporting DXF lines and rebuilding the model?
  • Sending solid SAT geometries across and rebuild the model?
  • Using IFC which creates non native elements and isn’t supported in all your tools?

Whatever solution you pick you’ll end up spending hours, if not days, translating your model, and cleaning it up to be useful in your desired modeling application. And you know how easily it is to overlook an import error, we’ve all been there.

So what makes Konstru save time?

Konstru translates bi-directionally using native elements: So no in-place masses but real Revit beams using Revit framing families, real ETABS framing elements using ETABS section catalogs, etc. Simply upload your model into Konstru and download it into another tool. It takes 5 minutes. And the best thing is, you can do it over and over again. No more headaches.
