How it works?
It is a very simple 2 step process wherein you’ll be first exporting your SolidWorks model (.PRT & .ASM) using the Creo Exporter plugin into the BXF file.
This BXF file format is the proprietary file format developed via BIMDeX. This exported BXF file will carry all the design data information.
This will then be imported inside Revit using the Revit Importer plugin which will give you the native Revit file (.RFA & .RVT) as per your needs.
