More Tekla fun for Revit users - Import and Export Plugins

Well, as long as we're goint to play with Telka BIMsight, we may as well see what happens when we export a Revit model as well. 


Tekla interoperability with Autodesk Revit products

Tekla work with partners to offer the AEC industry integrated open BIM workflows. With Tekla software, owners and architects, engineers and construction contractors can easily enjoy the benefit of accurate, coordinated, rich data and use that information to deliver the project faster and more economically.
Tekla® and other members of the buildingSMART® alliance support a global program to promote OPEN BIM throughout the AEC industry. OPEN BIM™ approach allows project members to the collaborative design and construction regardless of the tools they use.
Please note that this tool is currently in an experimental phase and is updated in approximately one month cycles. As a result, do consider joining and offering constructive feedback to the Linked-In group Tekla-Revit Interoperability Forum where we will be announcing updates to the Tekla Structures and Revit plug-ins.
Specific feedback can also be directed to: Tekla_Revit_Feedback@tekla.com

Interoperability between Autodesk Revit 2013 and Tekla Structures 18 only

( Download Quick Start Guide)
Reliably importing model information from Tekla 18 to Autodesk Revit 2013 is now enhanced as Tekla has developed the Import from Tekla Add-In. Revit and Tekla Users can coordinate their building information models to gain greater insight and certainty.
Autodesk Revit 2013 users (Experimental Version 2.1: Released 1st March, 2013)
To install the Import from Tekla Add-In or Export to Tekla Add-In, choose from the free download button below. Import from Tekla provides Autodesk Revit 2013 users with the highest-level of object intelligence possible to enable the imported Tekla 18 parts to add-value in their workflow.
Tekla Structures 18 usersTekla Extension Export to Software (v2.5) includes intelligent interoperability with Revit 2013. This Extension can be downloaded from Tekla Extranet

Interoperability between other versions of Autodesk Revit and Tekla Structures

Autodesk Revit users; For Autodesk Revit versions dated 2012 and earlier; there currently is no dedicated Import from Tekla Add-In. However, to experience a simpler workflow in sharing your model with any Tekla Structures user, download the Export to Tekla Add-In by clicking the download button below.
Tekla Structures (All Versions); If you are using Tekla Structures 17 or earlier, then please use the Export to Software (v1). This Extension can be downloaded from Tekla Extranet.


In case of problems; please direct all feedback to: Tekla_Revit_Feedback@tekla.com
  • The Export to Tekla Add-Ins offered for download above delivers the same functionality in both instances and thus known issues remain unresolved.
  • Tekla Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) Import to Revit Add-In has been developed to improve the import of Tekla Structures IFC files by using the Revit API to create native objects from the data supplied by the Tekla IFC file. The Tekla IFC Import to Revit Add-In is available through the ‘Export to Softwares’ function and more detail is available in the Tekla – Revit Customer Link document.
