How to import Revit objects into Archicad Start Edition 2022?

Michele T

Hi, I have an Archicad Start Edition (solo user) and I am trying to find a way to import Revit object files into my 3D models. It seems that there is no way to do this in the Start edition but nearly all the appliance suppliers provide RVT files of their items and not Archicad files which means I can't build accurate interiors for my projects. Does anyone know how to do this? I am a very basic user so please keep it simple! Thanks 


Operating system used: Windows

Archicad Start 2022 is a cut down version of Archicad 25.

It has many features missing from the full version.

RFA/RVT import is just one of them




So you will need to find some other format that Start can open.

I don't have Start so I can't say for sure what model formats it can open.

Lenovo Thinkpad - i7-1270P 2.20 GHz, 32GB RAM, Nvidia T550, Windows 11

I guess Archicad Start Edition has some of these functions,
