When transferring models from Revit Structure to structural analysis tools one of the biggest issues is often that the original analytical model within Revit Structure has inconsistencies, these being isolated nodes, beams not connected etc.

Isolated Nodes

Trying to identify these issues can be time consuming and a little tricky but Revit Structure 2014 has some great new tools that can help with these issues. By Default, each node now has a read only property which enables the user to see the connectivity of the node.

Autodesk have also included two filters within the standard template which will enable you to very easily identify issues with a Revit model.

Take a look at my short tutorial video, I think this is a really useful tool for those that are transferring from Revit to Analysis.
