Take advantage of improvements in several areas of the structural analytical model, including the Local Coordinate System (LCS), which can now be displayed on curved beams and arc walls.
In Revit 2016, LCS is displayed on elements when defining loads. When you define hosted loads oriented to the host local coordinate system and highlight an element, the LCS is displayed directly on the element to preview the load direction.
A load oriented to the LCS is properly aligned with the analytical element curve. Previously, hosted area loads could be applied to slabs and straight walls only. Now in Revit 2016, area loads can be applied to arc walls as well.
Projected Load, a new parameter for area loads, enables the definition of a projected loads value and is consistent with the existing feature for line loads. Projected load display is redesigned for linear elements and correctly scaled to a projection angle value.
Manipulate and explore the analytical model to help solve round-tripping issues between Revit and structural analysis software.
