Can AECOsim Building Designer Read or Open Revit RVT Files in Bentley applications?
No, it cannot. RVT is their project format, which includes the 3D model, plans, sections, sheets, and schedules. It also caches everything linked into it. For most projects, they are around 100 MB or more.
Also useful is the Revit plugin runs inside of Revit and basically creates an I-model. It only contains the 3D model and properties associated to the elements in it, not any of the sheets, drawings, reports, etc. It’s not too far off from exporting an IFC from Revit.
For basic MicroStation and Bentley Architecture, Mechanical and Electrical use, the Revit User will need to use the I-Model Plugin for Revit, and provide you an I-Model that you will be able to use.
