Join Ed Cotey for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing an AutoCAD file as reference for drawing walls, part of Revit for Interior Design: Interior Walls.
…There are a number of options to create walls within Revit architecture.…You can use sketch lines.…You can draw basically walls anywhere you want and then move them into play.…Or you could actually use an autoCAD drawing, if it has existing…walls on it, and use that as a background to draw on.…Let's take a look at how to do that.…I would like you to do is, go to and click…on first floor. And we should see the entire layout of…the building here, and I want you to go the Insert Tab.…
And click on there.…There is an import panel of which the…first icon is to import an AutoCAD drawing.…Go ahead and click on that. You'll see Pick AutoCAD drawing.…Make sure…that that's selected and then come down to the bottom of the dialog…box because there's a number of little things we have to check on.…We want to preserve the AutoCAD colors because Revit is in black and white.…We want to be able to see the AutoCAD colors so we can draw on top of them.…We want to make sure that we bring in all the layers.…
Unless AutoCAD has had certain layers turned on and off,…
