Get started with Revit integration
The APROPLAN plugin for Revit© helps facilitate the communication between users on Revit and field project members on APROPLAN .
Using the plugin, Revit users (e.g. architects) can stay within their known environment (Revit) and field users within APROPLAN while exchanging the latest plans and drawings, including updating their versions.
Currently, the plugin allows exchanging views of plans and drawing from Revit to APROPLAN .It is the a first step in facilitating the communication between the BIM model and the field efficiently in an efficient way on APROPLAN Aproplan.
The APROPLAN plugin is compatible with Revit© 2019 and 2018.
