Question: How could I make all the sections in ETABS match the sections in Revit?

When I send my Revit model to ETABS, ETABS models standard sections instead of the specific section, even though I already have the exact section uploaded."

Section sizes from Revit are not supported yet. But I imagine they most likely change after running the analysis, right? It is possible to update section sizes back in Revit though. See more in this tutorial.

A couple more questions:

  • do you create analytical model with all structural properties in Revit
  • do you model also in ETABS or you just run the analysis
  • do you work on steel or concrete structures, or both

I would like to learn more about your workflow so more context is appreciated.
