Archicad to Revit with Layouts?

Melissa F
Contributor

Having never used Revit, I am unsure how an Archicad model translates into that software.

If I save my Archicad model as an IFC file to collaborate with someone working in Revit, does it take all the layouts from the Layout Book as well as the 3D model?

Are all the layers and layer groups preserved for use in Revit?

Hello Melissa, I hope you are well.
I explain to you.
Revit thinks differently than archicad.
In Revit there are no layers, only types and categories, it is a classification system similar to the IFC with which each model element is distinguished from the rest.

The IFC format only allows the export of the Model, the documentation can be exported to Revit but in a very similar way to Autocad - only by using vector files such as DWG, DXF and PDF.

Revit users will be able to take advantage of some of the documentation by cropping the view of these files.
It is the only way to take advantage of what you have documented.
I hope my comment helps you.
