Simulation CFD - 2013 Revit Launcher Workaround

Issue:

The Revit software that was bundled in Building Design Suite 2013 does not support the automatic configuration of the CAD launcher to transfer your geometry into Simulation CFD 2013.

Solution:

We are working on addressing this, but in the meantime; the following workaround has proven useful for several customers:

  1. Locate the *.addin file in C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Simulation CFD 2013\Launchers\Revit
  2. Copy and paste the file into both locations:
    C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\REVIT\Addins\2013
    C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2013
  3. Restart Revit 2013 and load a 3D view.
  4. The Simulation CFD 2013 button should be available in the Add-Ins tab.
  5. Reboot Computer: Some users have reported this was necessary.
