    Conversion of rfa files in revit 2017 trial

    Hello all,
    i am new to the forum and have just downloaded Revit 2017 trial as i have lots of rfa files and no means of converting them to dwg files.

    My question, can you convert rfa files to dwg files or other formats and save them in the trial version.

    If not, are there any methods to achieve this.

    Thank You!.

    For 30 days I believe the trail version works just like the regular version. After the 30 days you can just use it as a viewer and not save, export or print.

      Big R, Export, CAD Formats/.dwg...But, this export does not IIRC export 3D versions of families, just 2D representations

        Thanks Dave, It did export my files but they were devoid of any 3d so looks like a no go.

          I know in a project you can export 3D views to dwg and they stay 3D. Not sure about families, never needed to.

            You have to export from 3D views... I know it is possible as I have found Revit converted rfa's in Autocad MEP.

              I'm with Elton. Why would anyone ever need to export a Revit family to CAD? I've been using Revit for 8 years and have never even had the thought of doing that??
