View Full Version : Cleaning up exported Revit model for 3D Printing
2006-09-29, 03:31 AM
Does anyone know how to take an exported revit model and "shrinkwrap" it so you are left with just the exterior shell, top, bot and sides and nothing inside? We have been trying very hard to get a clean massing model from revit to a zcorp printer and the model has lots of tunnels and ramps and stairs inside and out. I've turned off all I could, but still the model has "holes".

Split it into a shell workset and a core and fit-out workset then turn off all but the shell, maybe add an additional workset that papers over the racks in the shell and is normally turned off - use simple masses in an in-place family to make sure these elements in the third workset don't impact schedules etc.

I would use the worksets as already discussed. Especially if you are going to have to do this again later. If you are in a rush, however. Have you tried printing to PDF and plotting the PDF?
