Converting from Revit Architecture 2015 to AutoCAD isn't completely straightforward because AutoCAD uses its own set of object formats -- namely, lines, arcs and circles. While you can automatically match Revit objects to their nearest AutoCAD equivalent, you need to pay attention to the conversion settings to make sure you use the appropriate computer-aided-design standards for your recipient. Learn how to export to AutoCAD in Revit Architecture 2015 with this online video.
…As popular as Revit is, AutoCAD is still very prevalent in the building industry.…As a result, there may come a time in your projects where you're faced with…exporting 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'll look at the steps for preparing an AutoCAD export.…So, I'm in a file called Export to AutoCAD, and…I'm looking at a level one floor plan at the moment.…
And I'm going to go to my Application menu, and under…Export at the top, I have CAD formats, and if I slide…over there you'll see that, in addition to DWG, we can actually…export to DXF, Micro Station DGN and even Ace's 3D Sat files.…So there's a few different file formats that we can do.…The process is actually going to be similar in each one.…I'm going to focus, on this movie, on DWG.…So, I'm going to click that.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
