Hi I'm trying to convert my file from Rhino to Revit, I export as an .sti and get the following error

'Some ACIS objects could not be imported. To import them, use AutoCAD to convert them into polymesh objects and reimport.'

I have attached the file for convert... any ideas?

.sat for nurbs .dwg for meshes. They both import well as masses.

Because of a number of factors I have a building mass modelled in Rhino. I need this model to be a mass in Revit. (so I can mass the floors, façade systems and so on)

Exporting the model as a .dwg sort of works but I don’t know how to create the mass from the geometry that is imported into Revit. Make sense? Help!

(Online they seem to indicate that exporting the rhino file as a .sat which work too but … No success)

I’ll attach the files if you have a moment, to look at it, I need to know how to mass that exact shape, selecting the lines doesn’t really work either because of the undulation of the façade.

you will never convert a DWG into something revit- ever..

DWG mixes with revit like oil mixes with water..

 

keep it out of your revit project.. like open it in another

session of revit and use it for reference only..

 

hold on- i have to go out for a few minutes but when

i get back i will create that thing in revit as a revit project..

 

and then you can ask me how i did it if you want..

 

 

PLEASE JUST  POST THE ORIGINAL DWG.. THAT

REVIT FILE IS CORRUPT..

raaaaaawr >_<

There is a issue when you say , peerage, that you want to import rhino surfaces into revit, and is that it becomes dead geometry: you CANNOT modify that geometry once you import it, and as same happen to rhino, you have to rebuild the surface. OR you can learn the new mass environment, its a little less user friendly, and yes, you will spend some time trying to do the same thing you do in Rhino. But the good news is when you change something in that mass environment, you have to hit "update" on revit, and all will be faster and cleaner. Hope this helps.

the most common revit question is about how to get (usually DWG)

sketches and linework into revit to become a revit project..

 

none of those files ever go directly into a revit project..

what you do is put them somewhere OUTSIDE of

your revit project and look at them and measure

them and printscreen parts of them and built the

thing in your revit project- from scratch.. you

can get very fast and efficient with that process..

 

if you know the program that created that sketch

or whatever linework it is- you can just refer to

it in that program and build it in your revit project..

otherwise import the DWG into a SEPARATE session

of revit as a "mass import" and you will be able

to slice it and dice it and do anything you need with

it so you can build it in your revit project..

Hi there,

I just tried the BIMDeX product - Rhino to Revit Exporter for my recent final year project and it worked well. You might as well try this out and see whether it helps or not. Rather going for workarounds like going to AutoCAD and then Importing, you can just try the trial version of the BIMDeX product and see how it goes. I reached them at sales@bim-dex.com. I'd suggest you the same.

Thanks...
