In the PDF that comes with Revit 7.0, it mentions a "Autodesk VIZ 2005 Revit Update". Yet when I do a search on the Autodesk site, or on the web, nothing can be found.
"VIZ 2005 Interoperability
•Separate download “Autodesk VIZ 2005 Revit Update”
•Adds abilities in VIZ 2005 to:
–Import Revit 3D DWG files
–Build object hierarchy in VIZ
–Transfer material definitions
–Apply materials to geometry
–Transfer active camera export"
From what I read on the "Revit 7 to VIZ " post back in OCT (if I understand it correctly) there is new information imbedded in the DWG when you export it from Revit. That extra information is read by VIZ so you don't have to assign material again once you load it in VIZ. However it requires VIZ to have this "Update" installed.
Am I understanding this correctly? And if so, where do you download that update?
