Revit - Speckle - ETABS mappings and levels and grids


Sending data into Speckle from Revit looks all good in the speckle web viewer. But when I receive the data in ETABS I can’t seem to find a way to map the elements. Also, how are the grids and “storeys” handled. Do these need to be pre-configured?

Any help, would be much appreciated.


Hello @BIM_Wash

Currently there isn’t any mapping availible in the ETABS connector. However, it is still heavily under development and element mapping is high on the list of priorities.

There is support for creating stories on receive, but only if the stories originated from ETABS in the first place. We are not turning Revit levels into stories. Would this be a useful feature for you?


Thanks Connor,

Great to hear the ETABS connector is under heavy development.

Element mapping similar to CSIXRevit would be essential IMO. An equivalent of Section 2.0 of the CSIXRevit manual would be ideal, as it is a bit of a guessing game at the moment.

@connor any updates on this one? Keen to see if there have been any updates on the mapping options.

Hi @BIM_Wash, apologies for the radio silence. We will improve the Revit - ETABS mappings further and better support for levels is something we could do in the next release, @connor will keep you updated when he is back from his holiday.

We had the same issue testing a stream from Revit to ETABS. It also didn’t create grids or levels. Also tried the other way from ETABS to Revit. It requires the section sizes already loaded in Revit. Is it possible to have create new types based on the section sizes?
