Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing AutoCAD files into Revit, part of Revit: Sprinkler Design.
- [Instructor] I bet you have a…bunch of AutoCAD details you don't wanna throw away.…Don't worry, we can still use them.…By creating a drafting view,…we can simply import our AutoCAD details.…We can explode them and work with them…as if they have always been in Revit.…So, to get started, let's jump into Revit.…The first thing I wanna do is go to my view tab.…On my view tab I wanna go to drafting view.…For the name, I'm just gonna call it symbols…with my cap locks on.…For the scale, we're gonna need to change that…or figure out what the scale of the AutoCAD…detail is that we're bringing in.…
I'm gonna click the dropdown here…and I'm gonna go to one to one,…12 inches equals a foot.…I'm gonna click OK.…Now what I'd like to do is go to the insert tab.…I'm gonna click on import CAD.…I'm gonna find the file I wanna bring in.…I'm gonna set my colors to black and white.…My layers or levels, I want to just bring in…the visible layers, and I'm gonna click OK.…It may be off your screen.…If so, typ Z A, that's zoom all.…Can zoom in on our symbols.…
