import rvt 2025 in Archicad 27

Aurelien Durand

Hello, we can't import a 2025 RVT model in Archicad 27. We tried the RVT and RFA import, and we have this message : it can import only 2015-2023 Revit files.

If someone solved this, I would be very interested .

Thank you


Operating system used: Windows 27.4060

You would have to have the Revit file saved in an older format if possible.

I know there are DWG/DXF converters to change versions.

I have no idea if there are Revit converters or if Revit can itself save back as an older version.


Otherwise maybe the Technology Preview for 28 may be able to cope with newer Revit files.

But that won't be out until later next month.

I am not sure exactly when but there is a webinar on the 10th July that will explain it.

Versions 6.5 to 27
i7-10700 @ 2.9Ghz, 32GB ram, GeForce RTX 2060 (6GB), Windows 10
Lenovo Thinkpad - i7-1270P 2.20 GHz, 32GB RAM, Nvidia T550, Windows 11

Thank you for the answer.

It seems Revit can't export in an older version and I didn't find yet a convertor.

We found another way, with an IFC file wich is a bit heavier but works fine.


I can't wait to see with the 28 !

FYI: The technology that enables the import/export/opening/saving of RVT and RFA files in Archicad is not developed by Graphisoft. It is being developed by a non-profit company called Open Design Alliance (ODA):


Revit 2025 was released 2-3 months ago, so ODA has to develop support for it, and then can Graphisoft use those latest ODA development kits to add support for Revit 2025 in Archicad as well.
