Did you link the rvt file directly or did you export it to fbx, because I can actually export to fbx and get the same result but importing revit is´t an option, oh and another thing are, you running 3ds max design on a 32 bit system or on a 64 bit?
The rvt link works fine for me. And 32 bit is so old I don't even
remember it. lol But I'm certain the 32 bit version of any
of these programs have the exact same functionality.
I have the exact same problem right now I don't know what to do about it. It just stops loading at about 3/4 of the status bar. I've tried many different ways of importing and I always get the same problem. I was just wondering if you managed to fix your problem and if so, how did you do it?
I had a similar problem and worked it backward. Sherlock Holmes with Revit because I've posted 3 times and got NO response from other "Masters" of this very fragile software for other problems so I hope this helps you.
The one bug that disallowed my Revit to Max ( via the FBX file transfer, you must use this correctly) is to REMOVE
ANY and ALL RPC items such as onterage people, cars, especially those valuable Trees etc. Although they come with Revit they DO NOT come with Max. I guess the greedy people at RPC feel that charging their $800 or so a year "Licensing fee" ( notice you don't buy it for that..) is legitimate.
Anyway, remove these items, sadly, and your trip from Revit to Max will work. Track down some free onterage. When you do let me know where you found it...actually anyone who see this let me know ( although if history repeats itself no one will respond).

I am having the exact same problem!
It can't be caused by the entourage (like trees), because it doesn't even work when trying to link an empty file with just a view in it...
