Revit: Exporting Revit to AutoCAD

Solution by Lee Miller to suit our HOK Cad Standards:

1. Once the view is ready for export, simply go to the File pull down and select Export a DWG, DXF, DGN. Select DWG.

2. You have the option of saving the Revit View in either an AutoCAD 2007, 2004, or 2000 file format. We typically save to AutoCAD 2004 file format for AutoCAD.

3. You can also select multiple views, i.e. each level’s Floor plan, by changing the Export Range from Current View to Selected views/Sheets.

4. The export Layering scheme is set by default to V:\RAC2008\HOK Support\HOK Export Layer Dwg.txt. In most cases, you can select the existing standard If you are not exporting to HOK standards, you will need to create a custom one.

5. Finally, you’ll have to pick a directory where the DWG file will be saved. Create a folder in the Revit project directory under Publish\Background. Make sure to create a folder in the following format: YYMMDD – Description.
