The Conveyor install provides three Revit addins for supporting the Rhino-to-Revit workflow. After installation, these commands can be found under the “Proving Ground” tab in the Revit ribbon:
- Rhino Conveyor – The primary dockable window for managing imports and element updates
- Import Geometry – A utility for one-time imports of curve and point geometry into Revit documents and families
- Setup Rhino File – A utility for exporting a Rhino 3DM file from Revit containing level and grid datums and Conveyor layers with the document families.
The Rhino Conveyor command will launch a “dockable” Revit UI for selecting Rhino 3DM files and managing imports and updates to objects.
The Import Geometry command functions in both the Revit Document and Family environment. The utility enables one-time importing of curve and point geometries that can be used for datum or other coordination.
Setup Rhino File
The Setup Rhino File command allows users to save a 3DM containing Revit project datums such as Levels and Grids for coordination. The 3DM will also contain a Conveyor layer structure with listings of Wall, Floor, Roof, and Structure family types present in the document. This utility is helpful for initial project coordination and origin alignment between documents.
