2.5.10. Revit

This integration description is valid for:

Revit 2018 and 2019 (64 Bit)

PARTsolutions parts from BIM catalogs (such as Novoferm for example) can be classified according to OmniClass, UniClass, IFC, PDT, etc. and then bring along this information when exporting to Revit (via PARTdataManager or Seamless).

Furthermore these parts bring along an assignment of a Revit Family Template (*.rft) from the Revit Standard, which is used when creating the Revit Family (*.rfa).[6]That means, Revit automatically uses the correct family template, so that no manual assignment of templates is necessary in Revit, which is a considerable relief in daily work.

Placing information, for a garage gate "interior" for example, is directly available. Also the respective negative solid is realised according to classification when placing the gate in the wall.

Example: Metric Window (English) or M_Fenster (German)

Example: Metric Window (English) or M_Fenster (German)

The PARTsolutions interface at a glance:

  1. Open a project. (Do not forget saving at the first time.)

  2. In the PARTsolutions menu click on Insert 3D or Insert model.

    -> The focus switches to PARTsolutions.

  3. In PARTdataManager or Seamless, specify the desired part.

    The following figure shows a garage gate from a BIM catalog.

    Specify the dimensions of the gate. Choose whether the gate shall be opened or closed, the motor position, color and much more.

    PARTsolutions menu in Revit, opened Seamless window with garage gate and gates placed in the building.

    PARTsolutions menu in Revit, opened Seamless window with garage gate and gates placed in the building.

  4. Click on Transfer to CAD system.

    -> The focus switches to Revit.

  5. Determine the installation position with the cursor and perform a single click.

    The garage gate exported from PARTsolutions is "smart". It "knows" how to place itself in the wall (interior side).

    [Note] Note

    You can recognize the availability of placement information when trying to place the gate anywhere outside of a wall. This will not be possible.



[6] The choice of the Family Template is up to the catalog manufacturer and cannot be changed by users.
