STEP file into Revit


Recommended Posts

What is the best way to get a STEP file into Revit.


I've tried to import into AutoCAD (in a effort to export to a dwg, etc.) but AutoCAD will not open it either.


Is there another Autodesk program I can use to import Step files?

Use Automesher !

Better results Autodesk can't do.



Automesher application extends AutoCAD / BricsCAD / ZWCAD software with the functionality to import and export 3D file formats and convert 3D drawing entities. It supports many of 3D file extensions, including STL (Stereolithography), OFF (Object File Format), OBJ (Alias Wavefront Object), 3DS (3D-Studio File Format), IV (Inventor File), SAT (Standard ACIS Text), PLY (Stanford Polygon Format), VRML (Virtual Reality), 3DM (Rhinoceros 3D Model), SKP (Google SketchUp), DAE (Collada), STEP (STandardized Exchange of Product), IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification), BREP (Boundary Representation) and allows to convert drawing meshes (polyface or polygon mesh) into 3D solid objects.




  • Import STEP, IGES, BREP, 3DS, OFF, STL, OBJ, PLY, 3DM, DAE and SKP file formats.
  • Export STEP, IGES, BREP, STL, OFF, OBJ, 3DS, IV, PLY, VRML, 3DM, DAE, SKP and SAT files.
  • Transform polygon mesh into polyface mesh entity type in both directions.
  • Convert faces, polygon mesh, polyface mesh to solid.
  • Turn 3D solid drawing entity into polyface or polygon mesh.
  • Support for polyface mesh, polygon mesh, solid, 3D faces, lines, arcs and circles with thickness.

Use the Step to ifc feature in either Bricscad or Autocad. Leave Revit because it's a piece of shit


Only to people who can't understand it.
