Introducing Autodesk React Structures – New Structural Analysis BIM Software

Autodesk announced earlier this month that they have released a technical preview of a new structural analysis tool named Autodesk React Structures. The software promises to bring exciting new collaboration tools and workflows to structural and civil engineers and further integrate design and analysis results directly into the structural BIM workflow.

Autodesk React Structures - Main Interface
Many of you will be familiar with Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional which is the current Autodesk tool for analysis of Steel and Concrete structures. Whilst this is a very capable design tool the interface and workflows with other Autodesk software has not really developed since Autodesk acquired the technology back in 2006 from Robobat. At present it is very obvious that React Structures is based on the Robot platform but the clunky Robot interface has been completely re designed and re thought to give a very fresh, clean feel to the software which makes it much more intuitive.

Autodesk React Structures - Ribbons

As you can imagine, being a technology preview, the software is still in a very early design stage and many of the functions and commands are yet to be implemented but the ribbon does hint to some nice future functionality.

I will certainly be keeping a close eye on the development of this product so look out for future posts and hopefully, some tutorials. If you would like to test the software preview for yourself then click the link below:

  2. Is this program compatible with Revit?

    hopefully the rebar link with Revit will be enhanced. It is of great interest

    Make React Structure your Structural Analysis Software. All the development you put into Robot transfer it to React Structures
