SANSCalc Export Revit Add-In

Overview
The Revit add-on, called SANSCalcExport, is a custom developed tool which will assist in transferring parameters from Revit into the standalone SANSCalc Desktop or the cloud based SANSCalc Online systems.SANSCalcExport is updated each year to cater for the latest available release of Autodesk Revit. This add-in is optional and not required for SANSCalc Desktop or SANSCalc Online to function.You may install SANSCalcExport on as many PC as you want. Each user could then export his Revit info to a SANSCalc Database file ( .db ) which could be opened or imported on both the standalone SANSCalc Desktop or the cloud based SANSCalc Online systems.

Points to consider when using the SANSCalc Revit add-in
Please mitre all Revit wall connections. For curved walls and curtain walls mitring might not work and you might need to double check wall lengths between Revit and SANSCalc. SANSCalcExport will add a mark property into each walls’ instance properties for cross reference purposes. Inside Revit you can add a wall tag from the UK library to show the mark property as a tag. Make sure each walls’ exterior face is set to the exterior of the building. Doors and windows are linked to the orientation of walls. Make sure the wall type properties of your external walls are set to “external” and internal walls set to “internal”.  Please ensure that all “stacked walls” are converted to “basic walls” before exporting to SANSCalc Desktop. You can do this by selecting the stacked wall then “Right Click” => “Break Up”.
