  1. Hi @Sky, Thank you for the files, this will help us to improve Revit Import. Actually there are sheet layers with 2D View drawings as you can see from the attached images: Yes, we have some problem with importing 3D views together with 2D views which we are currently investigating, but as you write using 3D Model View is working - you can use this too. If you choose to use "Current file" as Destination, yes there would be nothing drawn on the design layer, but the imported objects are added as separate resources (textures, symbol definitions and so on): if you choose "New files in folder" as Destination, for every revit file you will have .vwx file in the selected folder. Each .vwx file contains resources (textures, symbol definitions, and so on), and objects are created in the drawing. See the image of the created .vwx files: I'm attaching a quick reference for using Import Revit (Batch): Please, let me know if you have questions? Best regards, Vasko
  2. Hi @Samuel Derenboim, If you change file extension from .rte to .rvt Vectorworks will import the file :-). Best regards, Vasko
  3. Hi @VW_Harry, I used Default settings on DWG Export and the result is perfect. I'm using Vectorworks 2019 SP4 (build 490894). I'm attaching the result DWG file plus some screenshots. With yours DWG Export options I get perfest result too.(see cad_test_LayersAsLayers.dwg) Best regards, Vasko cad_test.dwg cad_test_LayersAsLayers.dwg Export Options: DWG Result opened in AutoCAD:
  4. Hi @VW_Harry, Could you please send me the file, so that we can investigate the problem? Best regards, Vasko 
  5. Hi @markymarc, The exported DWG file is Ok. I opened it in AutoCAD and it looks Ok. It appears that this is a Mac only(on Windows it works Ok) drawing issue that I'll report to the guys that work on drawing. You can avoid the issue by saving as .vwx the imported file immediately after the end of DWG import process (do not change view) and close the saved file. Than open it and everything will look as expected. Best regards, Vasko
  6. Hi @markymarc, Could you please send me the file, so that we can investigate the problem? Best regards, Vasko
  7. Hi @Sky, Sorry to hear this. We will investigate the issue with this file and will try to fix it for the next update. Best regards, Vasko
  8. Revit import is not a standard import; it is more like IFC import. The goal is to have parametric object at the end, which is currently limited by the present ODA Platform implementation. We add to the created on import Revit Entities all available parameters and also the necessary IFC records so that entity could be properly exported to IFC. But if you wish, you could ungroup the entities. This issue is something that we are currently working on. This again is caused by ODA library limitations.
  9. Hi Rodolfo, I made some more tests and it appears that AutoCAD is having problems working with Gradient fills. I found that layer Vegetacion is the one that causes the problem for AutoCAD. You can use this options to avoid the issue: Best regards, Vasko
  10. Hi Rodolfo, Just uncheck (set to OFF) "Export Images and Image Files" setting from DWG Export Options dialog and the exported dwg file will be much more workable in AutoCAD. Best regards, Vasko
  11. OK , I'll ask Jim where he saved the file, so that I can access it. Thanks.
  12. Hi @Pabs, Sure you can, just send the file and a screenshot as a private message to me. Kind regards, Vasko
  13. Hi @Amorphous, Could you please send to me the .vwx file and a screenshot of the settings you used for DWG Export, so that we can find the best settings for the result that you want to achieve. Best regards, Vasko
  14. I know it's not the best solution, but for small price you can try it and you if you do not use this laptop for rendering, but for small projects with no texture rendering...
  15. Hi @Lisar , Think about upgrade of the memory of your laptop to 16 GB and replace the 750GB HDD with 1 TB(or 500GB) SSD and you can keep using it. Best regards, Vasko
  16. Hi Justin, I used VW2018 Fundamentals to export to DWG your posted file and there were no problems. I used these settings: I attached the result of export in a zip, so that you can use it if you wish. 757 STATUTORY DRAWINGS 2-dwg.zip Best regards, Vasko
  17. Hi Sam, As Tamsin said this was made on purpose, because of Saved Sets. But you can use "<<" button as on the attached image to clear the publish list. Best regards, Vasko
  18. Hi Sky, Your problem is fixed for VW2019 SP3. Best Regards, Vasko
  19. Hi @ptoner , Thanks for sending me your file! It is saved with 2D active view (Sheet) which causes problems to Revit Import sometimes. The best approach for Revit Import is to save Revit file in Default 3D View ( for example: {3D} View ) and to use default import options. If you want, I can save and send it back to you, your file in 3D View, so that you can use it. And we will add more information to our error messages. Best Regards, Vasko
  20. Hi @cberg and @ptoner , Please, send me the files you are having problems with (or a link for downloading them) privately by using the Message button in my profile. Best regards, Vasko
  21. Hi @ptoner , May I have the Revit file that you are trying to import, so that I can investigate what the problem is? Kind regards, Vasko
  22. Hi John Meunier, The files that you try to import in Vectorworks are Revit version 2010, but Vectorworks Revit Import supports files created in versions 2011 through 2018. When I opened these files in Revit 2018 I get this message: I converted all files from the zip so that you can use them in Vectorworks. 3d_MTR_Column_2018.zip Best Regards, Vasko
  23. Yes, you always will get folders for DWGs on Publish, because The option "Create Folder for Each File Type" creates or removes file type folder such as DWG_DXF, PDF, DWF, Image. Folders for the documents are not controlled by this option. Best Regards, Vasil
  24. On Export to DWG (File->Export->Export DXF/DWG...) or on Publish to DWG ?
  25. Plus if you uncheck "Export Complex Line Types as Blocks" you will create .shx files for the line types which will require creating folder. This option must be set to On if you do not want folders on Export DWG (not Publish - Publish explanation is above). Please, look at the image attached by Bertf.
