Hello and thank you in advance for reading my post.

I've searched through this forum (and many others) but I've not found anyone in my exact position. I work for a consulting MEP engineer that has been doing work for the Veteran's Administartion for the past 5 years. All along our work has been done in 2D using regular 2D Autocad 2010. Recenly, one project manager at the VA has started to require that our work be submitted to him drawn in 3D with Autocad MEP 2011 with intelligent objects. We purchased a suite license for Autocad MEP 2013 and Revit 2013.

We would like to begin training in Revit rather than Autocad MEP, the reason being Autocad MEP seems to be lacking many fittings (specifically accurately modeled Victaulic fittings for fire protection piping) and many manufacturers seems to be bypassing Autocad MEP in favor of Revit. Of course, the most important factor in our decision is being about to provide our client with a file that is viewable/editable and fully compatible with his system.

From what I can see, if you export from Revit 2013 to a DWG, the only way to get a 3D model in Autocad MEP is to export as ACIS objects, which are nothing more than 'dumb 3D solids' when viewed in Autocad MEP. Is there any way to export from Revit into Autocad MEP while retaining things like, Duct / Pipe size, material, System type, etc.

Thanks again for any help you can provide.

If you are in a 3D view in REVIT and do the export to DWG it will produce a 3d dwg file. It will NOT however produce smart AEC objects like ducts, pipes, doors, windows, walls etc for AutoCAD. I don't have AutoCAD on this computer to test it but it used to just produce 3D surfaces and linework. But it will be in 3D.
