Inventor to Revit: The BIM Exchange Program

by Fred Ortiz on Aug 17, 2015

How do I get an Inventor model into Revit? Can I open up an Inventor model in Revit and save it as an RFA file? Can I export an Inventor model to an RFA file? Can I save as my Inventor model to an RFA file? I receive these types of questions from customers on a weekly basis and there is a solution, it's called the "BIM Exchange Environment" within Autodesk Inventor 2016.

In my background working for the RV industry my primary responsibility was to design and build a better motorhome or travel trailer. But that was just a small part of this process. As a company we also had to facilitate the production of our product. I worked closely with a Manufacturing Engineer who would manage our manufacturing plants and assets throughout the US and Canada to help ensure quality and consistency between our products. He would layout these facilities in 2D and help procure new equipment in an effort to increase efficiency.

A360 Collaboration for Revit (C4R) - Get Your Head In the Cloud!

by Fred Ortiz on Jun 29, 2015

Collaboration and communication while working on a Revit project can be troublesome for an AEC consultant. Having worked for an MEP firm in the past, network worksharing off a localized central Revit model was the norm, which meant designing from an outdated architectural model and creating a clash detection disaster.

There was a mechanical guy routing ductwork and placing diffusers, a plumbing guy routing piping and placing sprinklers, then there was me placing receptacles, light fixtures and routing conduit. When changes were made to our designs, communicating these changes typically wasn’t accomplished until right before we had to submit our model to the architect.

This Week in Support

by Rich Sanchez on Apr 8, 2015

Hello everyone, welcome to my introductory post. I suppose we can start with a little background. I'm one of the newer members of the team here but don't worry, I have over ten years of industry experience including Product Design, Research & Development, Product Management, Production Management, and End-user Support & Training.

The plan here is to highlight support cases from our Lifeline team that might be relevant to other users. The format is a work in progress so if there is something you don’t like or something different that you want to see be sure to let me know. 

The Question:

How can I run Revit on my Android tablet?
