Shows step-by-step how to export pipe and duct network data of a Revit model or model part to a d3d file in order to subsequently import and further edit the pipe and sewer networks in the AutoCAD module 3D Pipe&Power.

Before you begin

You want to export the data required for importing pipe and duct networks into AutoCAD.

Navigate to:

  1. Optional: If required, select the part of the model to be transferred with a 3D selection frame () and, if necessary, use the view filters to hide elements.
    Note: Since not all situations or components used can be imported without errors, there may be gaps in the generation of networks in AutoCAD that require manual editing.
  2. Click Handover to Design 3D.

    The Save as dialog opens.

  3. Navigate to the desired file location, enter a file name and click Save.


The data of the model or model part required for import into AutoCAD has been exported to a d3d file and can be imported into AutoCAD with LINEAR Design 3D Pipe&Power in the next step.
