Additional Information

Known Issues

ESRI grid files downloaded from GIS services usually cover very large areas and contain hundreds of thousands of points. Importing that amount of data into Revit is, least to say, problematic and that is why we prepared the tool.

Large .asc files import can slow down and freeze Revit for longer time. It is recommended to trim the terrain surface to a selected boundary.
