Autodesk Project Storm

Project Storm for Autodesk Revit Structure is a technology preview that provides cloud-based structural analysis to structural engineers as a part of the BIM process. Project Storm enables structural engineers and designers to:

  • Perform static analysis from the cloud so as not to disrupt their workflow or hinder performance.
  • Simultaneously perform static analysis for various buildings models or parts of a project.
  • Calculate different variants of the same model for example using differing materials, at the same time.

Structural engineers and designers must perform calculations as a necessary part of the design process for any building structures project. Project Storm makes structural analysis more accessible allowing analysis to be performed from anywhere at any time by accessing computers in the cloud. Being able to perform analysis during the design process helps to streamline the Structural Engineers workflow.

Please note that you will need to install the latest service pack UR1 from Autodesk prior to installing Project Storm. See Link Below.

Once Project Storm is installed you will see the following additions to the Analysis ribbon within Revit Structure.

Simply submit your analysis and you will then be notified of results via a notification bubble. Click the Results button to show other results as desired.

Autodesk Project Storm can be downloaded from the following location.

  1. Hi,
    I tried this new extension and seems very promising – but it doesn’t work for us. The reason being that we have set the material for framing families to be a Type Parameter and not a Instance Parameter.

    I wish this could be looked at or you could have choice before you run the software to specify if the material is an instance or type parameter.

  2. Hi,

    I have also tried this and you are correct, the materials have to be instance based and not assigned by a type parameter. I shall pass this on to Autodesk for comment!
