Project Storm - Structural analysis in the Autodesk Cloud

Autodesk have released Project Storm in the Labs.

Project Storm for Autodesk Revit Structure is a technology preview that provides cloud-based structural analysis to structural engineers as a part of the BIM process. With Project Storm, engineers and designers can extend design models from Revit Structure to the cloud for structural analysis from directly within Revit Structure.

Results can then be visualized and explored within Revit Structure and disruptions to workflows are minimized by performing analysis in the cloud as users continue to design.

  1. Have you tried it out? Any thoughts? I still think it is somewhat slow for being in the cloud. A simple frame took 5 minutes to analyze, but I can see the benefit of being able to access the information online wherever you are.
