Hey Everyone,

Using R14/R15; I'm an acoustics/AVL designer/integrater and use sketchup to create quick models for projects that don't have native Revit files.  I've been experimenting with importing SU files into Revit, and can't quite get it to behave like I want it to.

My issue is that if the Sketchup model is an enclosed space, say a rectanglur box, it treats it as a solid and doesn't cut properly in Revit.  I've tried direct linking/importing (which I figured out won't cut due to not being assigned a cuttable category), importing into a family (using the generic model template), and even exporting to 3D dwg and importing that into Revit (same issue), but nothing works.

I figured out that if I delete one face on the box Revit then mostly cuts like I expect it to. View depths in Plan/RCP are still a bit wierd though...

Help? Hopefully it's something simple I'm missing...? (also, if I didn't pick the right subforum feel free to move as needed)

why are you not using the Revit modeling tools?

A couple of reasons; I use an acoustic/speaker modeling program that imports/exports from/to Sketchup.  This program has pretty stringent model criteria that makes exporting from Revit to Sketchup to EASE a pain the rear, so it's easier to build the model in SU for this purpose.  Also, most of the time (for me, anyway), it's quicker to build what I need in SU than it is in Revit.

That being said, if there's a way to export a single sided interior-surface-only room from Revit to SU/ACAD (walls = a single plane), I would love to know how.
