Hello everyone,

I have a requirement for some grey matter input.


I'm exporting ACIS/SAT files from Solidworks for use in Autodesk Revit so the faces are smoth and aren't faceted.

I believe that the best format for this is ACIS/SAT as most of the others options result in facets.

I have 'dumbed down' the CAD to reduce the export file size to the point I cant reduce the features any further. 


However, I cant seem to reduce the file size enough to satisfy the Revit requiremenets of competitor products.

The geomentry is also too complicated to recreate in Revit so was hping to see whether there was a Solidowrks fix or a bolt on/3rd party software you knows knew of.


Look forward to hearing from you.
