How to import AutoDESK REVITmep into AutoPIPE?
Short answer, it can be done but not directly.
According to the following AutoDESK web page here, REVITmep can export the following formats:
a. DWG (drawing) format is supported by AutoCAD® and other CAD applications.
b. DXF (data transfer) is an open format that is supported by many CAD applications. A DXF file is a text file that describes a 2D drawing. The text is not encoded or compressed, so DXF files are generally large. If you use DXF for 3D drawings, you may need to perform some cleanup to make the drawing display correctly.
c. SAT is the format for ACIS, a solid modeling technology that is supported by many CAD applications.
d. DGN is the file format supported by MicroStation of Bentley Systems, Inc.
Regardless of converting to Bentley Microstation DGN or AutoDESK DWG, the next steps of importing that file into AutoPIPE uses the same process; export coordinates and Import into AutoPIPE,
open file in Microstation, export coordinates from Microstation into a TXT file, import TXT into AutoPIPE using the following command: File> Insert Model> Microstation Coordinates (*.txt).
open file in AutoCADD, export coordinates from AutoCADD into a XLS file, import XLS into AutoPIPE using the following command: File> Insert Model> Coordinates (*.xls). See the following WIKI here for more details
