HOW TO: Convert a Level

Supported Version: v1.0 and v2.0

Setup Assumptions

This article describes how to convert level geometry from Rhino to Revit with the Conveyor tools.

  • Revit Requirements: A Revit document with loaded level annotation.
  • Rhino Requirements: A Rhino text object assigned to the Levels category and indicating the Level name at an elevation

Workflow with Rhino – Text

1. (Rhino) Define a text object

Create a text object in an elevation view (Left, Right, Front, Back). The name of the text is what the Revit level will be called. The placement point Z coordinate will be the level elevation.

2. (Rhino) Assign the text object to the Levels category

Assign the text object(s) to the Conveyor Levels category.

Save the Rhino file.

3. (Revit) Launch Rhino Conveyor and select saved Rhino 3DM file

In the Rhino Conveyor panel, select the Rhino 3DM containing the level object(s). Verify the listing of elements and select as needed.

4. (Revit) Load selected levels into Revit

Load the selected levels into the Revit model.

Modify and Update Levels

1. (Rhino) Move the Rhino text up or down in the Z-Axis

Move the Rhino text levels along the Z-axis to change their elevation.

Save the Rhino file.

2. (Revit) Refresh the file in Rhino Conveyor to review changes

Refresh the Rhino file in the Rhino Conveyor panel. Review the updated elements for changes.

3. (Revit) Load the updated levels

Reload the updated levels. The existing levels will be moved to the new elevation.
