Good afternoon, 

I know one of the features for vectorworks was the ability to import native elements into vectorworks from Revit. So I tried to do an example door - using TRUstyle doors as a guinea pig.

Here is the attached link : http://www.trustile.com/tools/revit


maybe I'm doing something wrong?


Also - Simplify Geometry - Awesome Addition to importing complex models. Breath of Fresh air!!!

I downloaded some demo files from Revit site.

I tried the one with the building and site so far.

There are coming a few styled Walls and Windows.

This is fine !


But everything else are crappy meshes that don't have much meaning.

It doesn't help much to convert to Solids with import.

I don't know if Revit works with these meshes only, or has Solids that will be lost in translation.


Therefore I vote for an option to exclude everything what can't come in as VW PIO !
