Read

Geometric, View
and Annotation text elements

Work with the full set of geometric elements such as:

  • Curves
    • Families
    • Family Symbols
    • Family Instances
    • Wall
    • Roof
    • Floor
    • Ceiling
  • Topography
  • Annotation elements
    such as grids, dimensions, texts

Supported File Versions

BimRv SDK can read Autodesk® Revit® files of version 2011 and higher.

Write

Full Save

Save Revit® files that are 100% compatible with Autodesk® Revit® software, ensuring seamless interoperability between applications.

Incremental Save

Optionally save only additions and changes made to a model while still retaining the whole file, making the file save process faster and more efficient when working with large files.

Supported File Versions

BimRv SDK offers write support to the latest version of RFA/RVT only.

Visualize

Visualize BIM data on the desktop or from any web-based application

  • Performance

    Spatial filtering and other performance enhancing techniques provide fast visualization of .rvt and .rfa data, even for large models.

  • Navigation

    Use a set of standard features for navigating through a model such as zoom, pan, 3d rotation and more.

  • Materials
    and Lighting

    Use materials and lighting effects to create a high-quality, realistic visual representation of a model.

  • Visual Styles

    Use different visual styles to customize your rendering of silhouettes, obscured (hidden) edges, transparency and more.
