Export to Revizto

Export from Revit

Revizto supports all versions of Revit starting from 2014 except Revit LT. For Revit LT you can load models into Revizto via FBX format (learn more about FBX import).

After you install Revizto, you can find the Revizto tab within the tabs of Revit or you will see it when you install Revit.

Note: A Revit project must be opened for the Revizto Tools panel to be active. Please note that using Revit 3D Camera Views or Schedule Views will disable the Revizto Tools panel.

Clicking the Export to Revizto button will open up the following export dialog box:

Using this dialog, you can export the scene that is currently opened in Revit to Revizto. Here you have the following two choices:

  • Create a New Project - this option will export Revit project to a new Revizto project.
  • Link to existing project – when Revizto project is already created and needs to add a new scene. Revizto has two options for it:
  • Append as a new model – to add a new scene to the project;
  • Overwrite existing model – link Revit project to already existing scene. For that choose a name of a file from the list.

Then you will see the dialog box with several options for exporting. Place checkmarks of what you want to view in Revizto.

If you need to review the details of export sheets click “Select” button and you will see the list of sheets and two options for their format, “Vector” or “Image”.

If you export to a new project all sheets in the sheet tree are selected by default and will be exported. If you choose a current project Revizto checks what sheets were already exported to this project and selects them in the sheet tree. If you want to change a set of sheets for export you can do that by selecting and unselecting sheets in the sheet tree. If a sheet has already exported to Revizto and you deselect it during a new export, the old, unupdated version of the sheet will still be attached to the Revizto project.

Note: When a Revizto project is created, it is no longer connected with its original Revit model. If you make changes in Revizto, they cannot be synced back to Revit. However, if you make changes in the Revit model, you can always perform a re-export to the current project.

By default, all materials will be exported to Revizto with their render appearance. If you want to export information about phases, which is marked by object colors in Revit, you should turn off the option “Use Render Appearance” during the export.

Furthermore, you can also disable “Use Render Appearance” option to see the colors as shown in Revit with “Shaded” appearance or colors defined with the appearance profiler in Navisworks.

Please note that when “Use Render Appearance” is turned off, no textures will be exported to Revizto but the defined colors in the model will come through.

Export from Navisworks

Revizto supports Navisworks Manage and Navisworks Simulate starting from 2014 version. After you install Revizto, you can find the Revizto on the Navisworks menu.

Exporting from Navisworks to Revizto works correctly only with shared coordinates. You need to check this option before importing a project to Navisworks from Revit or other software. For that, open Navisworks Options click on Revit in File Readers and in Coordinates field choose Shared (see the picture below).

Note: A Navisworks project must be opened for the Revizto Tools panel to be active.

You can export the scene that is currently opened in Navisworks to Revizto by clicking the Export to Revizto button.

Using this dialog, you can export the scene that is currently opened in Navisworks to Revizto. Here you have the following two choices:

  • Create a New Project - this option will export Navisworks project to a new Revizto project.
  • Link to existing project – when Revizto project is already created and needs to add a new scene. Revizto has two options for it:
  • Append as a new model – to add a new scene to the project;
  • Overwrite existing model – link Navisworks project to already existing scene. For that, choose a project name of a file from the list.

Then you will see the dialog box with several options for exporting and you can place checkmarks what you want to view in Revizto.

If you need to review the details of export sheets click Select button and you will see the list of sheets.

When a Revizto project is created, it is no longer connected with its original Navisworks model. If you do changes in Revizto, they cannot be synced back to Navisworks. However, if you make changes in the Navisworks model, you can always export it again to the current project (see description above).

Export from AutoCAD

Revizto supports AutoCAD starting from 2014 version. After you install Revizto, you can find the Revizto tab within the AutoCAD menu.

Note: If Revizto add-in didn’t appear in AutoCAD 18 after installation you should open AutoCAD menu -> “Manage” -> “User Interface” -> “Customize”. Click the right mouse button on REVIZTOEXPORT4 in “Partial Customization Files” section and choose the first option “Unload REVIZTO4.CUIX”. After that click “Apply” and “OK”.

Open again the User interface (“Manage” -> “User Interface”) and click right mouse button on “Partial Customization Files” and choose the first option “Load partial customization file”. Here choose revizto4.cuix (by default it is C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\Revizto Export 4 2018.bundle\Contents\Resources) and click on “Open”. After that click “Apply” and “OK”. You should see the Revizto4 tab in the AutoCAD toolbar.

Note: An AutoCAD project must be opened and 3D view (not plan view) must be active for the Revizto Tools panel to be active.

You can export the scene that is currently opened in AutoCAD to Revizto by clicking the Export to Revizto button.

Using this dialog, you can export the scene that is currently opened in AutoCAD to Revizto. Here you have the following two choices:

  • Create a New Project - this option will export AutoCAD project to a new Revizto project.
  • Link to existing project – when Revizto project is already created and needs to add a new scene. Revizto has two options for it:
  • Append as a new model – to add a new scene to the project;
  • Overwrite existing model – link AutoCAD project to already existing scene. For that choose a name of a file from the list.

Note: If trying to link a new scene from AutoCAD to an existing Revizto model make sure the model being merged is also in shared coordinates or your AutoCAD model may not line up once in Revizto.

Then you will see the dialog box with several options for exporting and you can place checkmarks what you want to view in Revizto.

If you need to review the details of export sheets, click “Select” button and you will see the list of sheets and two options for their format, “Vector” or “Image”.

When a Revizto project is created, it is no longer connected with its original AutoCAD model. If you do changes in Revizto, they cannot be synced back to AutoCAD. However, if you make changes in the AutoCAD model, you can always export it again to the current project (see the description above).

Export from ArchiCAD

Revizto supports ArchiCAD 18 and newer. After you install Revizto, you can find the Revizto add-in within the ribbon of ArchiCAD.

Note: If Revizto add-in didn’t appear in ArchiCAD after installation you should open ArchiCAD menu -> “Options” -> “Add-on Manager” -> “Search for more Add-ons” and choose the folder where you installed Revizto (by default it is “C:\Program Files\Revizto”).
