    Default Help with conversion

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello,

    I am developing a 3D project, using Autocad. The project includes a sink (American Standard) and is available only in *.rfa format and I don't have Revit
    Please, is it possible for anyone to convert this file to DWG ?

    Thank you in advance!!

    I don't think that it is possible to convert it to a 3D object. As far as I know you can only export 2D views to .dwg from Revit.
    I draft in Revit with a black background.

    According with the info I saw, the file can be exported to DWG

    Please look at the .dwgs that were provided. They are in 2D! You requested 3D!

    Thank you for your answer

    I know that the example shows 2D, I just intended to show an example. I remember when I did a Revit Wokshop, we were told this concept, exactly

    Give me a couple minutes.

    -Edit-
    Attached are both an ACIS and a Polymesh version of the supplied .rfa family. The attached files are ACAD 2007 format. If you need anything else, please don't hesitate to ask.

    @RobDraw - Converting Revit files (of any type) is insanely easy. It took me longer to type this response than it took me to convert the supplied .rfa family into both of the attached files.
