seems to me sw and revit must be worlds apart..........no one is biting as yet.
im led to believe from my research on this forum that revit can save as .sat, but the architect is not willing to oblige - the best he has come up with is a .dxf that imports as a whole lot of nasty surfaces - not comfortable with measuring these to fabricate our windows from.
please let me know if there is something else i should be trying
not having much luck!?
Not sure Revit exports SAT? Why not get in touch with an Autodesk reseller and say you are interested in integrating Revit into your company workflow, but you need to send them some files to see if they can work with SolidWorks?
Can't the originator of the Revit file convert it for you?
EDIT - I stand corrected. Revit 2010 supports ACIS export. I know this used to be a big issue as the main export formats from Revit were Autodesk only. The problem being that Revit is seen as the end of the line in terms of usage, or if not it is getting ported into AutoCad. Not even Inventor users could get Revit data in easily (before 2010). I'm pretty sure though that for 2011 etc Autodesk will be opening the formats up between apps to provide more ability to transfer 3D data. Just don't expct that to be STEP, IGES or Parasolid though from Revit....Inventor format maybe.
