Mesh Import from OBJ files

Mesh Import from OBJ files



Import meshes into Autodesk® Revit®! Within limits, all kinds of shapes and objects can now be brought into the project environment.

Meshes in OBJ format may be made from free-form modeling software such as Autodesk Meshmixer or can be generated from photogrammetry.

    In revit 2019 there is an error message:

    revit could not complete the external command

    If you send me the OBJ that did not work for you, I can look at it and see what I can do to get it to import within the limits of the software. Also see .

    Thanks for sending my your OBJ that caused an error. Your OBJ was able to be imported at scale of 0.3281 in my test. Meters and feet scale worked, but centimeters scale 0.03281 was too small to make a mesh within the limitations of Revit.

    Unfortunately, the APP did not fulfill its task... I spent the money for nothing

    I got my money back... Thank you very much for that

  • Great app

    It imports mueshes of furniture and others well and seemingly without many problems. Unfortunately it does not solve Revit's problematic face mapping issues that I was hoping it would. Service was great

    Thank you Eric for working so hard to get me a result. Despite a technical hiccup you stuck with me to ensure a positive outcome at the end. Looking forward to supplementing my models with meshes from now on in!

  • smooth mesh
    Sebastian Aguirre | 十一月 21, 2017

    Eric, the meshes are very faceted, how can I smooth it? so it look smooth in viewports and render regards

    In a View's Graphic Display Options dialog try turning off "Show Edges" . Besides that, you could try modifying your meshes in separate mesh editing software such as MeshMixer.

  • why i can't import obj file

    when I Import one obj file, the error: The input argument "graphicsStyleId" of function Autodesk::Revit::Proxy::DB::TessellatedShapeBuilderProxy::Build or one item in the collection is null at line 885 of file d:\ship\2016_px64\...\APITessellatedShapeBuilderProxy.cpp

    For troubleshooting, see . Revit version must be English. You can send an OBJ to me at to check for importing into Revit.

    ERIC BOEHLKE (發佈者) | 六月 22, 2017

    App is for English language Revit, only. Customer supplied OBJ which imported without error in English language Revit. Non-English language functionality may be in a future revision of the app.

    Xumang Lv | 七月 20, 2017

    Can you support the import of material and textures?

    ERIC BOEHLKE (發佈者) | 十一月 22, 2017

    Material can be set by Category in Views. MTL for OBJ is not supported. Update: Revit Material supported in Version 2.

  • It imported a mesh
    Steve Lacy | 三月 21, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    It didn't meet my needs but the service was awesome. Eric refunded my payment within 30 minutes of my request. Thanks. Perhaps the mesh I was hoping to work with was not very good. I was hoping to trace a point cloud to convert it to a basic floor plan. It was imported, but it won't help me with my projects.

    ERIC BOEHLKE (發佈者) | 四月 09, 2017

    The app works with meshes that are manifold. A mesh made from a building is not likely to be manifold. Suggest to use the point cloud feature of Revit to trace points. File type is RCS. MeshLab is one program that can export an XYZ point file from a mesh. That can be converted to RCS in ReCap.

  • Too meager
    Karl Pesch-Konopka | 七月 18, 2016 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    Meshes aren't scalable in Revit If you try to import a mesh made with Autodesk ReMake using the standard scaling option, its about the size of one billion units. If you try to change this during import, it pulls the whole thing to shreds. Quite frustrating.

    ERIC BOEHLKE (發佈者) | 九月 19, 2018

    The app creates DirectShapes. DirectShapes are not scalable in Revit, That is why the app has a scale input field in its dialog. See See also about preparing meshes for import.
