    Is there a way to import an AutoCAD Architecture 3D drawing into Revit Architecture and keeping the drawing in 3D instead of it coming in "flat"?

    Honestly Revit is such a piece of shit, it is very overrated, it doesn't even have compatibility with Autocad. Are you kidding me. 3d in Autocad is vastly superior, Autodesk should invest in it instead of trying to push this Revit agenda.

    how can  you edit a dwg for example I imported a dwg and I want to delete part of the drawing. The dwg isn't linked.

    Is it common to extract revit models to dwg?  Will it cause alot of errors and not as accurate as drawing in Autocad?
