Does anybody know how to get around Revit's modelling limitations (no lofts, limited 3D sweeps, 3D point selection etc) with another program. I've tried importing .dxf files, but meshes are not working well. Perhaps somebody knows of a cheap program that works well with revit, or if more sophisticated geometry is on the way with new revit versions?

Dear sam spade, I has been try to imported Autocad 2002 (3D solid) to revit 4.5 It's seem like a block, you can't modify or explode with that models. then I try to import with AutoDesk VIZ 4.0 then save to the new dwg file. after that import with revit again. It's work, This mean that revit not support solid surface. I'm sure that to be works with meshes model would more compatible with revit. I'm not sure this is the right answer you ask for it. perhaps someone might answer better. Actually I decide to quit for this website today cuase, I thought that seem like collections of revit family components rather than community of revit user's resource. I posted already 5 topics. only few persons responsed. Where is web administator.? Does this website still alive.?

Sam, I can tell you that Revit has never supported meshes and the last I heard they have no intention of ever supporting them. Makes it kind of hard to push the envelope. -Hiroshi-

Hi Sam, If you truly feel that this an urgent need, I recommend you go to the wishlist forum and submit this as a wish. Most of the Revit developers review that site on a regular basis to see what users are demanding. FRM Post edited on 2003-12-23 01:37:02
