BIM6x Announces Revit Families & Revit Geometry Exchange Add-on for ARCHICAD

BIM6x, BIM solutions provider and authorized ARCHICAD reseller, has announced the global release of a new RFA (Revit Families) & RVT (Revit) Geometry exchange add-on for ARCHICAD 21.

The free RFA & RVT Geometry Exchange add-on enables ARCHICAD users to import RFA (Revit Families) into their ARCHICAD project as objects, including doors and windows.  It also enables the geometry exchange between Revit and ARCHICAD. 

“We are excited to see the worldwide interest during the initial launch of the add-on,” said Chris Clark, BIM6x ARCHICAD Solutions Director. “ARCHICAD users can easily utilize it to hotlink an RVT file into their project as well as convert their 3D geometry into an RVT file for model comparison with Revit ™ users."

“Although not a replacement for IFC workflows, the RFA & RVT Geometry Exchange offers another choice for interoperability for ARCHICAD users, not to mention access to thousands of RFA objects currently available online,” explained Link Ellis, BIM6x ARCHICAD Technical Director.  “It further expands the many file format options ARCHICAD users can utilize in their workflows.”

RFA & RVT Geometry Exchange provides robust support in key workflow areas:

  • Importing 3D geometry from. rfa object files and creating GDL objects
  • Hotlinking 3D model geometry from. rvt project files
  • Exporting the 3D model geometry of ARCHICAD into .rvt format

The RFA & RVT Geometry Exchange add-on is now available free-of-charge and is both MAC and WIN compatible from http://www.bim6x.com/solutions
