Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting to AutoCAD, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
As popular as Revit is, AutoCAD is still very prevalent in the building industry.…As a result, there may have come a time in your projects when you were faced with…having to export a portion of or all of your project to a format that AutoCAD can understand.…Depending on the needs of the recipient, exporting to DWF covered in an earlier…movie is one Option. However, Revit is also capable of…exporting directly to AutoCAD's native DWG format.…In this movie, we will look at the steps for preparing an AutoCAD export.…So, I am in a file called export to Auto CAD, and I am looking at a level one floor…plan at the moment. And I am going to go to my application…menu, and under Export at the top I have CAD formats.…
And if I slide over there, you will see that in addition to DWG, we can actually…export to DXF, Microstation DGN, and even Asics 3D SAT files.…So, there's a few different file formats that we can do, the process is actually…going to similar in each one. I'm going to focus in this movie on DWG.…So, I'm going to click that. And the dialog that displays has a variety…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
