Hi everyone.  I have a question about importing 3D models into Revit (I am using version 9).  I worked on a model in microstation and can import it into autocad.  My question is what is the best way to get it to Revit.  I would like to be able to turn it into a working Revit model, not just for a reference.

Should the geometries be grouped in microstation before saving it (or exporting it) as a .DWG? 

How should the geometries be handled once it is in autocad (as far as regions/grouping/etc...)?

What file type is best to bring the 3D model into Revit?  Should seperate parts of the model be brought in together or as different files? 

I also have access to Deep Exploration wich allows me to save files as various file types for converting to different programs.

Thank you for your time

and thank you frank gehry.

There is no way to turn any outside model into a working revit model, you will need to rebuild it.

Is there a way to import as masses?  I have an awning made up of an array parts that are variations of each other and would like to import them as some sort of solids.  Also is there a way to loft a surface in Revit?  Some of the surfaces that were imported didn't quite show up perfectly.
