General Usage Instructions

What is a Data Exchange? 

A Data Exchange represents the data of a geometrical model stored in a neutral format on a cloud system. It allows you to access the model data either as a whole or at a granular level. You can use the Data Exchange to build interoperable workflows spanning across organizations, applications, and systems to share the right data with the right stakeholders in the right context. Centralized and secure data on the web enables users to have control over the accessibility and consumption of data across various applications and users in the format of their choice. It also facilitates continuous validation and versioning of the model data.

In a sample business scenario, let us assume two users, using Rhino and Inventor applications, are using the same data of a geometrical model that is associated with a Data Exchange from the cloud. When the author of the model makes changes to the Data Exchange, the updates are propagated to the downstream users and both Rhino and Inventor users can update their data by receiving only the changes. Updating only the delta changes reduces latency compared to the traditional file-based workflows, where the entire file is transferred between Desktop systems.


  • Download the "Data Exchange – Revit Connector" installer file from the Public Site. 
  • You must install Revit 2023.0.2 or later to integrate and use Revit Connector. Monitor the latest Revit code fixes and versions for updates. 
  • The Revit user must have an Autodesk Construction Cloud® (or trial) license to access the Autodesk Docs projects on ACC. Ensure that you are signed in to ACC using your Autodesk credentials to launch the Revit. 


Important: Data Exchanges are currently supported only for the US-based hubs and projects.
