Understanding CAD import settings: Revit: Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting

When importing a CAD file, there are many options in the dialog. Some of them exhibit subtle effects on the import process results. Current View Only is one setting that can have an impact on the behavior of the imported file. In order to create topography from an imported CAD file, this setting must be unchecked. If your project uses True North, you can use the Orient to View setting. CAD SHX fonts can be mapped to TrueType fonts during import with a simple mapping table.
