"Automatic creation of REVIT and LUSAS models 
using parametric data"

Location: DTU Diplom, Lautrupvang 11A, 2750 Ballerup, Denmark, 23 June 2014.

The event partners, ICDAS and LUSAS, are pleased to announce that a half-day Seminar covering "Automatic creation of REVIT and LUSAS models using parametric data" will take place at the Technical University of Denmark, Ballerup, on 23rd June 2014. 

This free to attend seminar gives engineers, researchers and students a chance to learn about methods for parameterising structures; to see some of the latest new facilities in Version 15 of LUSAS; and to discuss your general CAD and finite element modelling and analysis requirements with others in a relaxed, informal environment. 

Models are created in REVIT by using ICDAS add-ins. When running add-ins, a LUSAS .cmd file is also created automatically, and by importing the cmd file into LUSAS a model is generated that includes supports, as well as an initial assessment for self-weight - all in preparation for the assignment of further loadings and solving in LUSAS to evaluate the results.

Example of REVIT and LUSAS models created automatically from parametric data entered into ICDAS software.

This half-day event is organised and presented jointly by:

  • Mr Truc Huynh, Founder, ICDAS, Denmark.
  • Mr Philip Icke, European Regional Manager, LUSAS, UK.

Event location:  Technical University of Denmark, DTU Diplom, Lautrupvang 11A, 2750 Ballerup, Denmark. See location map

Cost: The seminar is free to attend but bookings must be made in advance with ICDAS prior to the event. See below for details.

Booking your place

All bookings to attend this seminar are being handled by ICDAS


We hope you will be able to attend what will be a very informative seminar, showing how parameterization can be used to streamline the modelling process for particular civil, structural and bridge design and analysis applications, and how the latest facilities in LUSAS can be used to carry out additional modelling and analysis of typical structures.


Yours sincerely
