BIM Exchange

Hey everybody, not really sure if this is a inventor or revit question, but since everything seems to look right in inventor I figured I would ask here. 


So anyways I am using 2013 inventor and revit. I am trying to use this BIM exchange in inventor and I am try to by creating a simple part/family with a couple of different sizes in a table. Everything looks good in inventor as far as the table having different size and when I activate one it changes the part. When I export I am going to tools, BIM exchange, hitting export and away she goes. There is only one export button and everything is pretty simple to understand. So inventor as far as I know, is good.


Now when I bring it into revit as the ASDK format from export with BIM exchange as I am getting is the model with whatever view happens to be active. I am not getting the table nor the parameters I set up for manually changing the family.


I have done some research and noticed that in previous verisons you needed to export the table in inventor after that model, but I am not seeing that option anywhere. 


So my question is, am I missing something and you can no longer export parametric parts from inventor to revit, or is there another set I am missing either in the inventor setup or the import into revit? 


I want to say thanks for any and all help.
