You can incorporate a Trimble® SketchUp® design into a Revit project to provide a starting point for the building model.
Trimble® SketchUp® is a general purpose modeling and visualization tool. Revit uses building information modeling (BIM), in which building elements understand their relationship to each other.
When working on a design project, you can use both products to leverage the unique strengths of each. For example:
To use a Trimble® SketchUp® design in Revit, you can import a SKP file from Trimble® SketchUp® directly into Revit. As an alternative, you can use Trimble® SketchUp® to export a DWG file, and then import that DWG file into Revit. You could also link a SKP file to the Revit project, instead of importing it.
To incorporate a Trimble® SketchUp® design into a Revit project, use the following general process:
