So i have designed in revit this beautiful building for my thesis project and it is very curvy and i have tried several different ways to import it into sketchup but every time i do the buildings curves are such a mess that i can't even work with it. Is there a way to import without loosing the design? please help!
I just started using revit about a month ago so I don't know any of the tricks or techniques to making a building more simplified in terms of file size, or grouping walls so they stick together. When I say massing I mean importing what I have as one object so that if I were to import it into sketchup it wouldn't freak out on me because the building would be one large piece. On another note would it help if I exported my revit file to another program before importing it to sketchup or are there any buttons I can click to help the export better define the curved geometry.
have you tried exporting DWG, DXF, DWF, FBX file format out of Revit (with solid and wiremesh options).
Then try to import/open those into SketchUp.
yeah i got that part. From there how do i edit my export to be a solid or wire mesh to help fix the curves so when i export they will come in as solid forms or masses in sketchup?
