Import Revit topography into Fusion 360



I have a building with its topography modeled in Revit and now I want to import it into Fusion 360. When I import the exported SAT file from Revit to Fusion 360, the building is fine but the topo surface is not showing in Fusion 360.  Does anyone know how I can make the topo show in Fusion 360? Do I have to draw the topography in Revit in a different method rather than topo surface (like cut and fill) so then when I import it in Fusion, the topo will show?


Thank you

Hi @Vaseghi.Saba 

Could you try exporting a DWG file from Revit and then open the DWG in Fusion 360?

Let me know if this works?

I believe the SAT export from Revit is just solids.  When exporting is there an option to include surfaces?  I know it drops curves and other data but I thought it also dropped surfaces.  I believe Inventor ignores ACIS data is that is not a closed volume solid.  Maybe Fusion does as well?
