I wondering If anybody use FBX to export file from Revit architecture 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013
right into maya cause if you do soo
into maya the naming as dissapears, as a simple wall I got this
For one wall
all shaders become gray phong1 2 3 4 5 6 7 ; losing all the name from Revit.
wherease .dwg in version 2009 export just fine keeping the name the colors and group the UV ...everything
FBX instead keeping nothing,except the UV.
FBX create a different phong material for every single mulion even if there are the same materials , how crasy is this,
In revit I got 3 material for the scene in Maya I got then 25 different, instead of 3;
site mullion wall…
is there anything to do about it , cause there is no option box (except for animation...)
and also FBX is very slow to import export and also crash every time if too many polygone like
1 milions whereas .dwg go soo fast…
For example just make a wall into Revit any version export as FBX then import in Maya then voila,
THX...If you thinks you can solve this otherwise I will stay with .dwg
Soo nobody use Revit ??
or there no one who export ?
or you use dwg export ? it doesn't work either, material for subregion are not separed by material, same for mullions
there is no expert on Autodesk forum ???
Looking at the name that you are seeing when bringing the FBX into Maya, it looks like Maya is restricting certain characters from the name, and replacing them with alternate text. For example it is replacing spaces in the name with FBXASC032 (the ASCII code for a space is 32)
There are a couple ways you could fix this.
1. You could modify the families in Revit so that the names will be allowed in Maya without changes.
2. You could use the Search and Replace Names command (on the Modify menu) to replace the substitutions with better replacements (e.g. search for FBXASC032 and replace with "_").
This website shows the ASCII table, which may be helpful in identifying the characters from the substitution: http://www.asciitable.com/
thx Lance.Coffey (Product Support) for the answer,
but really I've got 2000 elements with different name like it's just take for a single project to rename maybe like 2 hours, lol and to rename family in Revit , Have You ever ear about the BIM ????????!!!!!!!!
seriously have you ever export anythinks from Revit ????
even in 3dsmax cause with MAX its even worst ,it doesn't even show up if it's not bug with 1 million poly, and what about the all grey material and phong whereas dwg got all the right color and transparency it's way easier to understand....
The question is anyone ever use FBX ?? or it's just a test from an internship ? 20 years ago ??
cause to have this kind of tatle : http://www.asciitable.com/ other question ,
is there a way to export from Revit ??
cause DWG don't keep subregion material while export since 2010 ?? does anyone use BIM ??
in the real world except me ?? thx ;( crying
When I was testing this in Maya, using the Search and Replace Names command, it seemed like it could be fairly fast, since you could replace instances of FBXASC032 (or whichever ASCII substitution) with another character in all of the objects in the file at the same time. Although, I did find that only one instance of the character was replaced (in every object) each time, so I had to click the Apply button several times to replace all the spaces. However, if you have several different FBXASC### characters to replace, it could get time consuming.
If you are familiar with scripting in Maya, you could setup a script to automate the replacement of characters.
Yeah, thxI tried many time way way to long,
but If it was only the naming for object,
all the name for the material has dissapears replace by grey Phong1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
imossible to know witch material is use for what
whereas DWG keep color transparancy naming from revit,
So You gonna ask me why not stay with DWG export
because Revit DWG do not export subregions, anymore neither different material from mullions to glass in curtain wall,
just simple question does anybody export From revit ????
everyone talk about BIM,
it do not work with Revit architecture 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013.
It's just a big adverstissing or there is some tweak to make on the big table of DWG export option tab where all the number are assign under Revit
cause subergion got the same material even if one is grass the other it tarmac
same for mullion and glass for curtain wall
I have had some success in getting a different material to show for a subregion by applying a graphic override (on the Projection Lines color) to the subregion, and then export using the "Export all properties BYLAYER, and create new layers for overrides" option when exporting the DWG. What happens when you apply a graphic override to the subregion and then export?
still not here is a pics
could send me the files 3dsmax and or Revit 2013 just on terrain one sub region that it
all the other work
