ARCHICAD Connection Add-In for Autodesk Revit

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.

The ARCHICAD Connection Add-In developed for Revit 2016 offers extra, optional functions to customize the IFC import/export settings of Revit:
  • Setting of "Fine" Detail Level and "Consistent Colors" Visual Style for all views defined by the IFC import
  • Correction of lines that are slightly off axis at IFC import
  • Export of Shared Coordinate System components to IFC Site
