Option 1: Collaboration
“I want to see if everything fits in Revit” or vice versa
Note that if you are collaborating in Revit, but why?

Navisworks is far more powerful (clash checking etc.) for this workflow.

Or consider also Trimble Connect, fast, open and a great price.

Export the BIM from Tekla Structures to Revit using an IFC file (Tekla > Export > IFC)
Simply Import into Revit. Insert > IFC directly in the same way you insert a Link or DWG.
The Tekla Structures geometry is now available in Revit and can be used to co-ordinate with Architectural / MEP project in Revit.
If you wish to take 3D geometry from Autodesk Revit and above into Tekla Structures, this done by using the Autodesk approved IFC file format (an intelligent format) or a 3D DWG format (a ‘dumb’ format)
Export from Revit using the existing Export to IFC command.
This geometry file can then be used in the BIM co-ordination process as a reference file by Tekla Structures.
Where the situation exists where the reference file has geometry that is actually useful to the Structural team, those parts (correctly dimensioned slabs and columns etc) can be converted to be native Tekla Structures parts and reused using IFC Change Management tools in Tekla Structures.

Export to Revit (.rvt geometry)
This Tekla Warehouse extension allows you to create an Autodesk® Revit® (.rvt) geometry file direct from Tekla Structures. This .rvt file does not include drawing sheets, legends, optimized families, types or project levels. This file is ideally utilised for project coordination similar to 3D DWG, 3D DGN’s.

Note that this extension will not work for versions prior to Tekla Structures 2019.

Download the ‘export to Revit (.rvt) geometry’ extension from the Tekla Warehouse. Install. You will find this in the Applications and Components side window (right side of screen). Double click the icon and create .rvt geometry files to link into your customers Revit project. This export can be used with the BIM Publisher to set up (scheduled) exports of multiple models at once.

When should the command be used?

For projects where PDF/IFC submission is not acceptable and RVT format is stipulated in the contract submission documentation.
This is not a replacement for either IFC exports or our dedicated Export and Import commands.
This is intended for project teams who are unclear on the advantages of IFC transfer.
The process is only a one way export. It is not intended for two way integration or to track updates to models.

Question:
For reasons beyond my control I have no option but to work using .rvt files rather than .ifc files, can I export from Tekla Structures to .rvt?

Answer:
The Export to Revit Geometry extension allows the export of model parts, from Tekla Structures, to a native Autodesk® Revit® project .rvt file. The extension is available from Tekla Warehouse This file is ideally utilised for project coordination similar to 3D DWG, 3D DGN’s.

Example

Watch as we demonstration how to export Tekla Structures objects into Autodesk® Revit® format, the geometry members we export will be native objects in Revit.  

Background
To integrate with Revit 2021 or 2022 you can download and install the appropriate version of the Integrator for Autodesk Revit. There is a specific version of the Integrator for each version of Revit:

For Revit 2021 use the Tekla Structural Designer Integrator for Autodesk Revit© 2021 (version 7.0)* released in July 2020. This is available from Tekla Downloads.
*This was updated to version 7.02 in June 2021 and we recommend you install this latest update also.
For Revit 2022 use the Tekla Structural Designer Integrator for Autodesk Revit© 2022 (version 8.0) released in June 2021. This is available from Tekla Downloads.
It appears that Autodesk have streamlined the installation of Revit and now the initial family content installed by the default installation for Revit 2021 and 2022 is incomplete. Users will find that several important ‘.rfa’ format files or the associated ‘.txt’ information files may be missing or contain incomplete data. This will cause issues with integration and should be corrected.

This issue is known to affect the UK, English (US Metric) and English-Imperial (US Imperial) content and may potentially affect that for other countries/ regions also.

Solution
The solution is to access the Autodesk Revit Content web pages for your version of Revit and install the appropriate content:

For Revit 2021 see Autodesk Revit 2021 Content
(For Revit 2021 and each country/ region option, there are two content files; one for libraries and one for templates. Autodesk advise to install both of these)
For Revit 2022 see Autodesk Revit 2022 Content
See also this important note
During file extraction you may encounter a “Cannot create…” error message. This is due to Windows needing explicit Administrator permissions to overwrite an existing file contained within the C:\ProgramData location. If you encounter this message, it means that some of the files being installed are already present.

To extract the entire package and ensure all the content is installed, run the executable using the “Run as Administrator” option.”

The default install content may not be complete so we recommend the “Run as Administrator” option is used at all times to ensure all the required content is installed

Tekla, Open Approach to BIM

Open approach to BIM

To achieve smooth construction workflows and realization of designs, we wish to see project members collaborate throughout design and construction regardless of the software solutions they use. As one software solution is never enough for delivering a construction project, we have chosen an open approach to BIM and work with partners to offer the AEC industry integrated, open workflows.About open BIM

Tekla interoperability with Autodesk Revit

Revit – Tekla Structures workflows

Tekla Structures and Autodesk Revit support open format BIM file collaboration (IFC files according to ISO 16739:2013) which makes BIM collaboration simple and effective. This is the preferred method to transfer data rich 3D models between the softwares.

Where a Revit user does not wish to use an IFC file, Tekla Structures (from version 2019 onwards) can create a .rvt file as requested (as well as other formats such as 3D DWG, 3D DGN etc).

There are limitations to this .rvt file:

  • As with all Revit files, there is no guarantee that future versions of Revit will be able to read this file – so it is not suitable for archiving. IFC files are text based and suitable for archiving
  • Drawing sheets, views, schedules etc are not included in the .rvt but can be included into a project bank (e.g BIM360) as a PDF file
  • Families are built from Tekla objects, but may differ in e.g naming, from what could be desired

Revit – Tekla Structural Designer workflow

Download Integrator and synchronize models with Autodesk Revit:

  • Start the integration process in Tekla Structural Designer or in Revit
  • Synchronize models in either direction
  • Intelligently map section/family types between modeling systems
  • Save bespoke mapping routines
  • Filter in/out key groups of objects, such as slabs, walls and braces
  • Produce log reports at each stage of the integration process
  • Track changes at an elemental level using unique IDs
  • Use colour coding to see the integration status
  • Communicate end forces, web openings and stiffeners for steel frames
