Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting to AutoCAD, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- 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…when you're 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'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 gonna 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, MicroStation DGN,…and even ACIS 3D SAT files.…So, there's a few different file formats that we can do.…The process is actually gonna be similar in each one.…I'm gonna focus, in this movie, on DWG.…So, let me click that,…and the dialog that displays has a variety of options,…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
