Free ARCHICAD Connection Add-In for Revit 2017 Released – Includes New Link IFC Function

Editor's Note: If this seems like a case of déjà vu, just a couple of weeks after we recently posted about the ARCHICAD Connection Add-In for Revit 2016, the 2017 version was released. 

From the Graphisoft website:

ARCHICAD Connection Add-In for Autodesk Revit

The GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD Connection is a free Add-In for Autodesk Revit. The Add-In improves the IFC model-based and bi-directional data exchange between GRAPHISOFT® ARCHICAD® and Autodesk® Revit®.


The GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD Connection Add-In for Autodesk Revit 2017 has three functions:
  • “Improved IFC Import” imports IFC models to Revit using extra features that improve the interpretation of architectural models;
  • “Link IFC” merges IFC models into the current Revit project as a non-editable reference;
  • “Export to ARCHICAD” exports Revit model elements in IFC files that are specially enhanced for use in GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD.

Important: For best results, make sure you have installed the latest version (17.2.0 or later) of Autodesk’s IFC 2017 import-export app for Revit.

For detailed information, see manual.
