I know that you cannot import/insert an excel file directing to Revit. I have read all the posts about different solutions and haven't found one that answers my question. I have Revit 9 and have AutoCad 2006. I'm having trouble when I import the CAD file into revit. It brings up a window that states "Some elements were lost during import. Active X and some proprietary components cannot be imported. Try exploding the file in AutoCad , or setting the PROXYGRAPHICS to 1." I tried importing the file into a drafting view and thats the message I received.
I've also tried exporting out of CAD as a Bitmap image and importing into Revit. That worked although the resolution sucks.
Is there any easier way to do this?
