I don't have Revit so I'm just guessing here - but I would expect that Revit can import ACIS (*.sat) files or STEP (*.stp) files.
But Autodesk products only read up to v7 of ACIS so in SolidWorks you must Save As (save as Copy) ACIS (*.sat) and click Options and set to v7 (I think the current ACIS in SWX is v17).
In AutoCAD issue the acisin command to import the geometry. My guess is in Revit File>Open files of type....
Incidentaly, if you happen to have a later version *.sat file from some source that you need to open in Autodesk products you can convert it down to a ACIS v7 file with the free Hoops ACIS Viewer (search Google) although I think it is limited up to v15.
