Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting projects to AutoCAD to use in Revit, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Revit.
While there are many similarities between Revit and AutoCAD Architecture, unfortunately…there is no direct path for these two products to share data.…Earlier in the course we discussed ways that we could use DWG files in Revit.…It's true that the DWG files can be linked over to Revit, but Revit will not unfortunately…understand any of the AEC objects within those files.…In this movie we will look at one of the approaches we can use to export data from AutoCAD Architecture over to Revit.…So if you just simply save the file and link it over to Revit using the procedures we have…already talked about, you'll get some sort of a warning message on the Revit side that…it can't understand some the objects in the data.…
This of course is a problem, because things like your walls and your doors and your windows…will just simply disappear.…You could turn on something called Proxy Graphics, and what that does is it create a representative…object to sort of stand in for the AEC object.…That kind of works, but the trouble with that is that it will really balloon the file size.…
