SketchUp Interoperability with Revit

Many SketchUp projects eventually make their way into other programs for detailing and documentation. At the same time, projects from these programs find their way into SketchUp for better visualization, collaboration, and improved communication. One popular program used to deliver construction documents and permit sets for many large architecture projects is Autodesk Revit. SketchUp makes it easy to export your SketchUp files to Revit and import Revit files into your SketchUp models.

SketchUp to Revit - Import your SketchUp files into Revit using one of the following methods:

  • As an "In-Place" Component
  • As a "Link"
  • As an IFC Export

Revit Importer - Available to SketchUp Studio subscribers. Easily import Revit files into your SketchUp models. SketchUp looks at the Revit file and automatically:

  • Creates components
  • Generates tags
  • Creates sections
  • Optimizes geometry
  • Defines materials
  • Supports Revit links

Alternative Revit to SketchUp Options - For our non-Studio subscribers, we've compiled a few other options that allow you to work with Revit inside SketchUp.
