You can share your Revit files (.rvt) with other project members using 3D Repo. There are just a few simple steps to follow in getting your files ready for processing.

Supported Revit file versions: from 2011 up to 2021

We always recommend our users to use the plugin, as it's the most efficient and easiest way for model sharing.

Model Set up

Since your Revit file may contain multiple 3D & 2D Views, we advise you do the following before you upload the file:

  1. Create a 3D View and change its name to 3D Repo
    Our platform will use this view to generate the 3D geometry

  2. Set your 3D View to a Fine Scale

  3. In the Graphics Display Options switch to a Shaded Style

  4. Save your Revit file containing the new 3D View

  5. Go ahead to and Upload your model

  6. A successfully uploaded & processed Revit model will look like this:
