Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing a CAD file, part of Up and Running with Revit.
While you may have chosen to do all of your work in Revit, some of the colleagues…and coworkers that you have working in other firms, or even in your own firm, may…have chosen to work in other programs such as AutoCAD or MicroStation.…Well, Revit understands the file formats used by these other programs.…It can import and export to DWG and DGN. And so in this movie, I'd like to show you…the process of importing data that was created in AutoCAD to use here in your…Revit project. So let's say that the site plan for our…restaurant building here was created in AutoCAD, that our civil engineer is…working in AutoCAD. They've sent us a DWG file and we want to…be able to bring that DWG file in and use it here in our project.…
So, I'm in a file called Link CAD, and I'm looking at the level 1 floor plan, and I…think it would make a little more sense to work in the site plan for this process.…So, I'm going to double-click Site Plan, and you can see that I get a simplified…view of the building. We're looking down on the building, now,…
