Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding CAD inserts, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- There's lots of ways to use…CAD data in your Revit projects.…Sometimes you don't need to maintain…a link back to the original CAD file.…In such cases, you an simply import the CAD file…and embed it directly in your Revit project.…The most common scenario where this might occur…is bringing in detail drawings.…Most firms have large libraries of standard details…that they've accumulated over the years.…It's pretty common that a lot of those standard details…would have been generated in a program such as AutoCAD.…So as you make the move to Revit, rather than…redraw all of those details, you might want to reuse…and leverage some of that existing data,…and just simply import them into your projects.…
So in this movie we're gonna simply look at the process…we could follow to import a legacy CAD detail…and use it in our Revit project.…So I'm in a file called "Import Detail"…and I want to bring in a CAD file in here.…Now, at the moment I don't really have a good view…anywhere in the project browser in order to do this import.…

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.
