Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing a CAD file, part of Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture.
Often when you work on a project you will get resources from outside firms or…outside designers and they may be working in other file formats.…The most common file format of course is a DWG file from AutoCAD.…The designer that created the sculpture garden for our museum project worked in…AutoCAD and created a 3D file.…We have two options in how we could deal with that 3D file.…We could open it up and actually re-create the geometry using Revit families,…and you're welcome to try that on your own if that's something that you're…interested in doing.…
But the simplest way to incorporate the design is to simply link in the DWG…file directly, and of course Revit does a really nice job of bringing in file formats like DWG.…You can also bring in SketchUp files and some other 3D formats as well.…So in this movie we'll just take a quick look at bringing in our 3D file. And the…sculpture garden is right in this general area here, and I'm in SAMOCA_V6.…So let me just spin around here, and I'm going to work right in this 3D view.…
