Revit to Sketchup using Speckle (You don't need a Studio License)

As a Sketchup user, I’m extremely disappointed with the two main “features” of the new Sketchup 2023 upgrade - the Revit Converter and Flip command. The Revit importer is only available to those with a Studio license, leaving Pro license holders unable to access it. However, there’s an open-source SPECKLE converter that allows you to import Revit files on any Sketchup version for free.

As for the Flip command, there have been similar tools available for decades. It’s frustrating that after a year of development, Sketchup/Trimble would present us with such insignificant progress. It’s hard to understand why they couldn’t have come up with something more substantial.


What if you don’t have Revit?

I think you yourself have been telling people how it can be done with Trimble Connect :grinning:

Speckle has a revit connector; you don’t need to have revit installed on your computer. I’ve just asked a collaborator to send the model from his Revit to Speckle, and I receive it in sketchup directly from speckle server. No need for Revit on my side!:slight_smile:
