Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting from Revit to AutoCAD, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Revit.
Just like that we can import CAD files into Revit, we can export any view of our Revit project out to CAD.…We can use any of the standard industry CAD formats, obviously DWG being the most popular.…And in is this movie we'll explore the settings and procedures that we use to perform that export.…So I'm in a file called Export, and I'm actually in one of the sheets right now.…I am in Sheet: A102 - FloorPlans, and you can see that over in my project browser.…What we're going to look at first is the settings that we use to control the export.…
Remember that we're taking a bunch of objects and a bunch of elements in Revit that know…what they are walls and doors and windows, and we're going to be exporting them out to…CAD, and basically turning them into bunch of lines, arcs, and circles.…Because CAD uses layers as the primary organizational tool, that's going to be one of the things…we're going to want to make sure that Revit establishes correctly we want it to map all…of the objects to the correct layer.…
