The RevLink Extension enables you to create and post families of CET articles. These families are then available and downloadable to architects, designers, dealers – anyone who helps to create buildings and office spaces – in order to design a truly realistic environment, populated with furniture and other accessories.
RevLink in Revit Architecture
The RevLink extension that used to run using a TCP/IP connection is now simpler and faster! The active connection between Revit and CET is no longer required, thereby allowing you the freedom to work independently from other people. Easy import and export features are now in place for you to be able to create families and to transfer drawings back and forth between Revit and CET. Manufacturers and dealers can use the Family exporter feature to create components from CET objects that they can distribute on their webpage or directly to the architects. The architect can then convert these components to Revit family files in Revit using the RevLink Add-In.
RevLink is supported in Revit Architecture 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021. Support for Revit Architecture 2017 and older, has been ceased. The extension is only available in 64-bit version of CET.
RevLink Add-In in Revit Architecture
In order to transfer files between Revit and CET, the RevLink Add-In needs to be installed in Revit Architecture. In the RevLink Add-In, you will be able to export floor plans within a Revit file and also import furniture layouts and families received from CET.
To get started, click on the following link to download the executable file:
- The executable file contains only 64-bit version of RevLink
- The executable file can be applied to all supported versions of Autodesk Revit Architecture
- To update an existing RevLink plugin, please download the executable file.
Close Revit Architecture if you have it open and launch the executable file to install the RevLink Add-In. That’s it! RevLink can be located on the Add-In tab of Revit Architecture the next time it is launched.
