Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding CAD inserts, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
There are 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 can 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 are going to simply look at the process we could follow to…import a legacy CAD detail and use it in our Revit project.…So I am 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.…
