Autodesk Revit (Structure)

Note: To see a video (narrated in English) of the recommended ARCHICAD-Revit (Structure) workflow and its options, based on a real example, go to:

Note: Revit is able to differentiate between “load-bearing” and “non-load-bearing” building elements (in element properties and by displaying disciplines). This information can be initially defined using ARCHICAD’s “Structural Function” classification, whose values are translated in the IFC file and can be recognized/handled in Revit as follows:
Example: ARCHICAD Foundation-type Objects (IfcFooting) can be loaded into Revit as “Structural Foundation” elements instead of “Generic Model” elements.
Remember: Although there is a default mapping rule for converting ARCHICAD elements to IFC elements, ARCHICAD’s “Element Classification” enables you to customize this element-level conversion for the purposes of IFC export. For example, if you use the Wall tool to model a beam, you can export the (wall) element as a beam (IfcBeam) to Revit.
Note: When using the reference model concept, engineers can save the imported IFC model as a separate Revit file (RVT) and link it into a running Revit project as a reference to protect its content.
Note: The installer of the GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD Connection Add-In can be downloaded free from the following site:
