Revit importer delivers flexible workflows in SketchUp 2023
Updated: Feb 23
SketchUp unveils native interoperability and removes barriers to creative exploration in 2023 with the Revit Importer for Studio and elevated modeling tools in SketchUp for Desktop.
Welcome to the next generation of creative exploration; updates for 2023 deliver the fastest, easiest, most native interoperable modeling experience yet. Trimble is connecting two core tools in the industry: SketchUp & Revit! The Revit Importer elevates SketchUp’s Studio subscription, while tangible improvements to core tools boost workflows in the desktop application. Indulge in SketchUp 2023’s powerful toolset for your next built masterpiece. Plus, there are two new scale figures to celebrate the new design year – Heather and her fierce but sweet cat, Lily.
Studio advances interoperability
Shave hours off your Revit-to-SketchUp workflow The new import feature within a Studio subscription allows you to accurately and efficiently convert your Revit models into SketchUp geometry for deeper collaboration across project phases, teams, and stakeholders. Various workarounds exist to export Revit models to SketchUp, but this new importer saves the most time, is more accurate in geometry conversion, and leads to much lighter models. By preserving model structures between Revit and SketchUp – Revit families and layers neatly translate to groups, components, and tags in SketchUp – you can save hours or even days of model cleanup and progress your project with accuracy. A smoother transition between design phases allows you to focus on what’s essential: fine-tuning your vision. “The Revit Importer sped up my importing and cleans up workflows from a couple of days to a few hours, even with complex models.” -Carl Goodiel, VDC Manager Why use it?
