I wanted to export direct to 3D rendering programs so created this Revit to OBJ converter. It is based on the Revit 2014 API new export code so only works with Revit 2014.
Materials are exported with colour and transparency and I've added the option to create a material texture file xml list to export textures. It is currently not possible to get this information from the Revit API.
It's been tested with Blender, Octane Render and 3ds Max Design 2014.
If anyone wants it - look on http:\\www.inglegreen.com
Absolutely, but several of the rendering softwares use OBJ as their (only) input format. If 3ds Max isn't available or is too intimidating for converting on to OBJ then my Addin may be useful ...
There is a new version 1.3 of the Revit to OBJ Converter.
I have provided the choice to export by Revit ID (grouped meshes) or as previously by individual meshes.
Thanks for this converter. I just tried the current version for Revit 2015. The OBJ output worked well in Metaio Creator (augmented reality app).
