Import 3D

Import 3D

Win64, English

Import 3D models to Autodesk® Revit®, including materials, colours and transparency. Supports the most used 3D formats.

General Usage Instructions

Loading a 3D model:

  1. Click on the Browse Button and select a supported filetype.
  2. Select a supported filetype.
  3. Click on the Open button.

Translate the loaded model into Revit Geometry:

  1. Adjust the positioning of the model. By default Center to Center is selected. The alternative is to choose the coordinate of one point in the imported model that should be positioned into the internal point of the Revit document.
  2. Adjust the units used for the import. Ensure that the units are not too small, otherwise, Revit may be unable to generate the geometry.
  3. Click on the generate geometry button


By default, the material names are imported and the geometry is sorted by the same materials like on the imported model. The color and transparency are also imported from the Wavefront models.
