Importing Revit Files to Sketchup

So… this is a general question really, concerning importing Revit Files into Sketchup.

I can import IFC files, no problem, and they work well.

However, some of the suppliers I use, for products such as Wall Ties, only have the 3D Revit files, (RFA format).

I have e-mailed them to see if they can supply the DWG version, which I can use, but is there anyway, a way I am missing, of importing RFA files into Sketchup?

Many thanks


No. The RVT and RFA file formats are proprietary to Autodesk, so the only way is to export from Revit to a file format Sketchup can understand.

Thank you @Anssi. Yeah, that’s what I thought. It’s just annoying sometimes when the manufacturers think that everyone in the world is using Revit.


Yep. Here in Finland, I think, although Revit has gained ground lately, that Archicad is still the bigger of the BIM contenders so many manufacturers deliver in the GDL format. A big problem with Revit and Archicad is that they do not talk well to each other.
