The former Project Octopus has been retired from Autodesk Labs, and has become a part of Robot Structural Analysis as "Results Connect". This addin is fully integrated in Microsoft Excel after installation and of Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis. . Each formula takes as arguments a set of parameters that can be written directly inside the formula, which may come from specific cells or from an active selection within Robot Structural Analysis. Once the link has been made with Results Connect, data is available for post processing with Excel formulas, graphs, pivot tables, and other methods present in the application.
With this approach, Results Connect enables a dynamic link between Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis and Microsoft Office Excel, eliminates copy/paste or CSV import/export steps, and removes the need for programing skills and knowledge of Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis API to extract data for use in spreadsheets.
