Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using CAD files in Revit, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Revit.
As you are no doubt aware, AutoCAD's DWG format is by far the most commonly used file format for Computer Aided Design Files.…There are countless DWG files in Active Production and in Archives throughout the world.…Even if your goal is to completely transition away from AutoCAD and begin using Revit exclusively…for your firm's design and production needs, it's likely that you'll continue to use, access,…and receive DWG files into the foreseeable future.…In this chapter we will discuss the ways that you can use those files in your Revit workflow.…So why don't we start with a look at which file formats are supported?…So of course we have DWG, and that's AutoCAD's native format, and that's by far your most popular format.…
But DGN is also supported, this is Micro-Station's native format, we can use DXF files from any…variety of CAD programs, SAT files, which is a 3D CAD format, and even sketch-up files, SKP files.…So all of these formats are supported and they all get imported into Revit Projects it much the same way.…
