Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating hybrid projects with nested CAD files, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Revit.
Importing or linking CAD files into Revit is often performed as a temporary or transitional measure.…Perhaps the CAD file is traced over to creating new Revit model like we did in the previous movie.…Or an existing CAD detail might be used as a starting point to create a new Revit detail.…However, it is also common for CAD files to be left as a permanent part of the Revit Project.…In another words, some parts of the project are modeled in Revit while others remain simply…drafted and embedded CAD files that gets printed right alongside with the Revit Project.…
Such an approach is not without its disadvantages, and there are some who do not favor the approach at all.…However, it is a common scenario that you're likely to encounter as you transition to Revit…and so in this movie, we'll take a look at.…So in file here called hybrid, and it's a Revit model of an art gallery.…All of this area here has been created with Revit geometry but in this area here this…going to be an outdoor sculpture garden.…And let's assume that that was created by an architect who's using AutoCAD and they…
