    collada file to Revit mass?

    It's common to export Revit files to .dae format for rendering in Lumion, etc., but I got a whole bunch of textured buildings to use in InfraWorks that I'd like to get into Revit as a mass so I can use the mass floors tool and report rough square footages. I can export from Infraworks straight to .3ds, .fbx, or .imx but none of these import to Revit. I can export the .3ds file to .dwg, but I'd still have to recreate the geometry in Revit. Is there anyway to turn imported geometry into a native Revit mass? Also, would it be possible to preserve the photo textures from the Collada file so that I can eventually replace of of my .dae's in InfraWorks with .rvt's?

    I've never used Collada but can you export directly from there to DWG? maybe SAT?
    Those can be imported in a mass family

      I am able to open the .dae files in 3DS Max and export to various formats. I tried importing both .dwg and .sat into a mass family. Both give me the same warning when I load them into a project: "Mass contains only mesh geometry, which can't be used to compute Mass Floors, volume, or surface area." I want to import this geometry to calculate mass floors. Any other options?

        you need to export to ACIS solid
