BIM interoperability

Work more efficiently with members of your extended project team. Revit imports, exports and links your data with commonly used formats, including DWG™, DXF™, DGN and IFC. Export your building model or site, complete with critical metadata, to AutoCAD Civil 3D civil engineering software and import models from Inventor 3D mechanical design software.

Use existing geometry in a linked IFC model as a reference for dimensions, alignment, snapping and hosting of some face-based families in a Revit model. When you link an IFC file, its elements are assigned to a default phase, further integrating open standards into Revit. Use many IFC-based elements to define room boundaries when creating rooms in the host model.

Autodesk supports BIM interoperability and open source data exchange methodologies, including IFC. Revit 2017 has been certified by BuildingSMART International for IFC version 2.0 Co-ordination View import and export. Revit supports IFC4 Reference and Design Transfer MVDs for export and link.
