What version of Revit does Vectorworks 2018 Import?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know up to what Revit version Vectorworks 2018 will import?


A client sent a Revit file from his client, when I tried to import I got an error message saying that the version of revit was not supported. I'm not a revit user although I have revit LT 2018, so I thought I could just open it up and save at a lower version only to find out you can not do that. I suspect the file was Revit 2018.


I was able to export from revit as an ifc and import into vectorworks. The import was good however I lost a lot of functionality in vectorworks like the create interior elevation viewports which needs walls to work with. I really needed that vectorworks command to work.


It would be really appreciated if we could know upon release of a new version what versions can be imported.


Perhaps a wish list item - if vectorworks can export its native objects to ifc it would be great to see ifc objects converted to vectorworks objects.

As from Vectorworks 2018 SP2 Revit Import will import revit files version 2018. By now it imports revit files from version 2011 to 2017.
