Eccentric Beams


I want to model a mixed structure in Dynamo Revit and then calculate it in Robot Structural, I need to move the beam axis and take the lower part of the panel as a reference to join the structure.

Thanks and sorry for my English.

Hi MiCal,

In Dynamo, using bar eccentricity is not possible at this time. We may introduce it as a bar attribute in the future.

What I could suggest is placing the panel and the beam in their target positions (as you described with beam axis aligned to the lower edge of the panel) and then linking them with some auxiliary structural element like vertical panels or a truss that have minimal bending stiffness.

Another option is modelling the structure in Revit and then exporting it to RSA with RSA-REVIT link.
