Each month we export Bradley Safety Fixture Revit files to ACIS (*.sat) file format; that can be imported into 3D manufacturing software programs, like Solidworks.
We are also asked to convert these same Safety Fixture Revit files to 3D AutoCAD (*.dwg) files for several Process Pipe design programs.
These global clients are serving and designing for the following industries;
oil , gas and mining production,
food and chemical processing,
construction site safety,
manufacturing and work-cell layouts,
material handling layouts,
They use 3D manufacturing design software (Solidworks), AutoCAD-based process piping programs or AutoCAD Civil 3D --to design their projects.
In March 2014, Bentley announced their direct file support of Autodesk Revit Family files by AECOsim Building Designer V8i (SELECTseries 5) BIM software. We did not receive any requests for Revit file translations for Bentley in 2014.
