It's been a long time since I've been on RevitCity, so I apologize if this topic is a repeat.

I've been given a project to research any and all potential companies and software programs that can transfer files from Revit directly to a CNC machine. So far there is MWF (Metal Wood Framing) from SrucSoft. The hiccups that we are running into is that the program only recognizes doors and windows as openings in walls, so any type of opening that we create in the wall needs to be based in a door or window family. Doesn't sound like a big deal, but it doesn't give you much room to stray from a conventional building and we run into basic problems with HVAC openings.

Is anyone else using MWF? Is anyone else using a different program or know of a different program? Anyone else trying to get Revit files to a CNC machine? Any information you may have on this topic is welcome.

Thank you!

I think if I were you I would look at what type of software CNC machinists are using. Most would be a CAM based application in which case, can many can read dxf files. You may also explore the options of ACIS models used in conjunction with some form of model interface. Otherwise...send it to someone using Inventor Smile

Are you doing some 3D machining on your CNC machines? (i.e., probing... 4/5 axis?) if so.... Revit is not the answer for you even though revit is a 3d modeler program... even if you're doing 2d machining i would not suggest Revit for it... coz creating NC programs requires precise lines (no overlapping, or broken lines). If you are in Cabinetry industry check out the "CabinetVision" - it's a CAM 3d modeling software which has the capability to convert the 3d model to 2d-ready for your tool path to be send to your CNC Controller.
