Revit Interface

The ETAP-Revit Interface tool simplifies the electrical design process by utilizing the data already in the Autodesk Revit® model to automatically generate electrical models in ETAP to perform calculations and checks.

The import interface from the Revit software for BIM (Building Information Modeling) provides the designer and engineers with the necessary tools to transfer the model to the ETAP software for performing complete electrical system design and analysis.

  • Improve engineering design quality
  • Reduce cost by significantly reducing hours needed to perform system studies
  • Avoid duplicate / incorrect data entry
  • Direct communication with Autodesk Revit
  • Flexibility to use all ETAP modules for analysis

Key Features

  • Import Revit drawings to ETAP one-line diagram
  • One-line diagram auto-generation
  • Customizable Universal Mapping of components
  • Data range & consistency checking
  • Typical data substitution for missing parameters
  • Use ETAP engineering library data

Revit - ETAP Universal Mapping

ETAP makes use of the information available in Revit for automatically generating a one-line diagram including unlimited sub-systems and populating element properties.

Intelligent error checking maintains electrical integrity of ETAP’s element properties during the data exchange process.

Universal Mapping tool is used to define direct relations between ETAP’s element properties and Revit’s equipment attributes.
