Not sure if this is the right forum, but I was wondering about interoperability with Building Systems. Our MEP just switched to building systems and he said that he thought the rep told him that they could read a Revit file natively. I was surprised, so I went to check it out, but I have not been able to find anything about it. Is this true or is someone confused?

I know 7.0 can import ACIS solids for coordination, but that's the closest I've gotten...

Your MEP guy can export a file to 3D DWG using ACIS solids, and you can bring it in your Revit project, but you can't go the other way yet. You could export a 3D DWG from Revit, but it would be 3D planes, not ACIS, but it might be enough to serve as a background for his systems.

ok, that's what I figured. Was going to be excited if I was wrong though...
