Hi. I'm not really new to Revit, but I am always trying to learn something new to help the firm I work for.

I have read that I can upload a sweep, but cannot figure out how to do that with an AutoCAD dwg. I have

tried saving it as a DXF, but when I try to upload, it doesn't show up as an option. Can anyone advise me?

 

Thank you, 

R.Randolph

Your question is not at all clear.

What are you trying to upload to? 

Revit has rules for shapes used in sweeps so please be more descriptive about what your dwg looks like.

I am putting in crown molding. I choose the path and click upload profile. I want to use an AutoCAD profile from my parent company,

which fabricates molding. They have CAD dwg files for the knives that create the moldings. I want to use the exact CAD dwg as a profile 

for my crown molding sweep. Is there a way to do that without having to redraw it?

 

Thank you for responding.

Link the CAD file into a Revit profile family and draw over it.  Your only other options is to bring it in and explode it but make sure you clean it up in AutoCAD first.

BTW -

You upload files to RevitCity but by your clarification, you meant load a file into a Revit project ... or family.

 

teafoe's answer is best practice but you can also use a sketch for model in place and wall sweeps.

 

The autocad drawing must be one closed loop sketch with no additional linework.
