With the Family/DWG Exporter Importer, you can save Autodesk® Revit® families automatically as Autodesk® AutoCAD® drawings, including their parameters.
After you have saved the modified drawing with an index, and updated the parameters, the drawings can be imported again quickly and easily. The corresponding families and their parameters are updated. In Revit models created by architects, the window, door or façade elements are represented as “dummy” families.
The planner who has to elaborate these elements can now export the dummy families and process them in the usual AutoCAD environment with the appropriate application (e.g. ATHENA). The dummy outlines are replaced by appropriate profile outlines, etc. Optionally, the planner can also adapt the element parameters and add certain profile information.
Once the elements have been elaborated, they can be imported into the Revit model. The dummy families are automatically updated with the correct profile outlines.
