Revit or Revit LT for PDMS files!!

Hello All,

 

I'm going to start a new job where the Client uses PDMS file (AVIVA E3D)

My questions are:

 

Is Revit LT able to work with this type of file (PDMS)?

 

For Security equipment (CCTV cameras, Access Control, Fences, Gates, bollards, etc.) do you advise me to use Revit or Revit LT?

 

 

Thank you ll in advance,

Regards

Hi @j.fernandesHTUCV,

 

 

You will be always able to inset file from PDMS, but you will not be able to modify those files in Revit, so in the end you will only use them as a reference. You can also use both in Navisworks to run clash detection.

 

About the question between Revit and Revit LT, I would say that if you are thinks on doing just isolated elements like cameras, fences or boxes Revit LT should be enough for you, but if you need to start creating electric systems or any MEP systems, I would suggest you to use Revit.

Hi

 

PDMS, or E3D as the never version is called, is not a file based system. PDMS uses a database to store all its data so it is not possible to just reference the PDMS model into Revit. It is possible to get the PDMS model into Revit though, by using third party programs. See attached link.

 

If you are going to make your delivery in PDMS the finished Revit model must be imported into PDMS. I think E3D has an IFC import function. There are also third party programs that can do this job. See attached link.

 

Check out this presentation from Autodesk University about workflow between Revit and PDMS.

Thanks for clarifying @Anonymous, that was I meant when I said that you can do it, by using a IFC or a workaround in a different format.
