    Tekla to Revit?

    is there any way to get a Tekla model into Revit other than IFC?

    Hi Dave,
    I think that with another format than IFC, you will loose the BIM side....
    I've heard about Revit addin for Tekla a time ago. You should check.

      maybe Tekla BIMSight that you can read about here . I hate having to download and install add ons just for getting a structural model that I want to link for background reference.

        Be aware that Tekla BIMSight DOESN'T export a model to Revit. It's similar to Navisworks Review or Solibri Checker. You can import ifc components and compare them. But no exporting Tekla directly to revit. You have to do this through IFC.

        The good news is though Autodesk and Tekla did announce they want to make this work better.

          not good news for me who has to have a project done in 6 weeks and the structural model is done in Tekla. I guess I'll try an IFC file

            Did I say better? I meant "even better than it already is".
            I'm assuming you already found this plugin: http://www.tekla.com/international/s...tructures.aspx

              I had not seen that so thanks for the link Martijn! I'll see if I can get the Tekla user to use this Export to Revit ap

                I know this forum is awesome and all, but this is post #1 in a Google search for "tekla revit export". It isn't completely worthless :laugh:
                But, how am I to complain when I get the rep for it...
