- [Instructor] Sometimes you need to share your file…with an outside recipient who's not using Revit,…so they may request that you export your file,…into a file format that their software can understand…and perhaps the most popular is the AutoCAD DWG format.…So in this video I'd like to look at the process…of exporting Revit views to AutoCAD DWG.…Now to get started you can actually export…either a sheet or a view or even several sheets and views.…And what you do is you go to the File menu here…and go down to the Export item.…
When you hover over that…it will expand out into a submenu…and then you've got lots of export choices available here.…Well at the very top we have CAD formats…and we can export to DWG, DXF, DGN, and ACIS SAT files.…Now if you want to export ACIS SAT files,…you need to start in a 3D view,…because that's a 3D solid file format,…but all of these others you can export 2D or 3D.…So I'm going to choose DWG…and that will display the DWG Export dialog.…Now couple settings I want to point out before we continue.…
