The new addition of reading Revit (.rvt) files in ArcGIS Pro was exactly what many people were waiting for.

I started importing some rvt files and they just look amazing inside the GIS.

However, as the number of imported rvt incresases, as soon as I close and try to reopen the same project it refuses to open, simply showing the error window with the option to send the report (which I did).

Has anybody experienced such issue with Revit files and ArcGIS Pro 2.2?

I tried with two different machiens and the problem is present in both.

If you are using the data for visualization\analysis I suggest you convert the Exterior Shell feature class elements. This feature class already contains only the exterior elements, so no query is necessary before convert it to a feature class. 

Link below has additional information on how the Revit file is organize.

Just one hint: after conversion, the feature class looses the original symbology of the Revit file. Just import it inside the feature class using the Symbology pane and everything will look just as the revit model.

Alessandro, 

A script to export from Revit to FGDB is coming soon. 

Best regards,

Is this something that is going to be implemented anytime soon? A year has passed since the answer and so far i could not find any export from Revit to FGDB tool yet.

Hello Hala, 

Without looking at the file these are my assumptions for your issue.

  • The file could be a RVT 2019  ArcGIS Pro 2.3.2 would read RVT 2019 
  • There is a family that is corrupt. 

Best regards,
