Inventor® software can be a great tool to create detailed models of various equipment that can be used in the building design industry. Revit®-based software can be a great tool to convey the design intent of different types of building design systems. Previously, if a detailed component was modeled in Inventor, there was no easy way to bring that model into Revit without losing the intelligence behind the model. Using the new Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools inside Inventor, you can now prepare your model for export to Revit and control the parameters that go into Revit. You can further control and flex the model inside Revit, thereby retaining the intelligence of your models. In this hands-on lab, we explore this new and exciting functionality to teach you how to move models from Inventor to Revit while retaining the intelligence behind them.

Key Learnings

  • Edit and manipulate models in Inventor
  • Use the BIM tools in Inventor and describe their possibilities and limitations
  • Explain how the geometry and models are constrained and can be edited in Revit
  • Pass connector information from Inventor to Revit
