I am trying to create ADSK file for an assembly created in Inventor so that I can export it to Autodesk Revit. How can this be done?

Use the BIM exchange button on the environments tab.

I can't remember if you can do it from 2012.  You can certainly do it from 2013 and 2014.

 

Typically the workflow is:

  • Create an assembly.
  • Derive the assembly into a part file (or use Shrinkwrap)
  • BIM Exchange (should be on the Inventor ribbon under "Environments" I think)
  • "Export Building Components".

And that's about it.  2014 is better for this workflow because there are some nice simplification tools, but I'm fairly sure it works OK from 2012.

 

(Just remembered:  For ADSK you don't need to simplify in the Part file - that's just for .RFA files which can only be created from 2014.)
