    Opening Revit 2012 projects within Revit 2011

    Hi all,

    I apologize if this has already been covered/answered, but a search on this site did not turn up anything to indicate that it had. I'm an interior design student, self-taught user of Revit, and my problem is this: I'm collaborating on a commercial design project with a fellow student who uses Revit 2011. In addition, my school has not yet upgraded to the latest Revit version. I, however, have. I found this week, to my chagrin, that Revit 2012 projects will not open within the 2011 platform. Is there a way within Revit 2012 to save a project "as" a Revit 2011 file? Is there a way to open 2012 projects within 2011 that I'm not finding? Is there a way to save my sanity? Thank you.

    Sorry to hear about your problem. There is no way to down grade a Revit project. You best bet is the hope you still have a backup copy that is still at the 2011 version. In the future take note of the warnings that pop up when opening a project. This is the best way to notice what Revit has done on its own. Hope you get your project back and can keep working.

      Sorry to hear you're having difficulty. There's a bit more information as to why in the Revit WikiHelp:

        Cripes. Thanks for the info. I guess I will have to ask my partner and my school to upgrade to 2012 (really, the school should have the latest version, anyway).

          If it's a pinch you are in, you can always use the 2012 30 day trial. Students get a free license of Autodesk software, it just says "STUDENT VERSION" on anything you print and/or export, and I believe Autodesk would frown upon you using a free license for commercial purposes (in fact I'm pretty sure it's against the EULA). You can download the educational license of the software at http://students.autodesk.com/

          HTH, and GL.

            Thanks, Carl. I'd thought of doing that, but I don't think I'm authorized to download new programs to the school's computers.
