I'm working in Revit 2011 and am trying to import a .sat file into my model which was exported from Catia V5 but when i try i get the following message and nothing gets imported into my model.
Some SAT elements were lost during import.
Any thoughts would be greatfully appreciated.

Make sure imported categories are turned on in the project.
