Free ArchiCAD Connection Add-In Updated for Autodesk Revit 2015 with New Features

From the Graphisoft website...

The GRAPHISOFT ArchiCAD Connection is a free Add-In for Autodesk Revit softwares (including Revit Structure, Revit MEP and Revit Architecture). The Add-In improves the IFC model-based and bi-directional data exchange between GRAPHISOFT ArchiCAD and Autodesk Revit applications.


The GRAPHISOFT ArchiCAD Connection Add-In has two functions:
  • “Improved IFC Import” imports IFC models to Revit using extra features that improve the interpretation of architectural models
  • “Export to ArchiCAD” exports Revit model elements in IFC files that are specially enhanced for use in GRAPHISOFT ArchiCAD.

For detailed information, see manual.

  • Import of all Attributes, Properties and Classification Reference data of the IFC model elements as schedulable Revit parameters
  • Export of elements based on Revit's phase status
  • Export of 2D annotation elements
