Revit to Max was developed to clean up and organise Revit FBX files in 3Ds Max, in one click.
Revit files are essential to an Arch viz project, however most elements will need to be re modeled, and materials applied.
This script provides a consistent layering and object organisation that would otherwise take hours to do manually.
I’ve imported many many FBX files, this is the script I wish i had!
It streamlines the import process from initial FBX import, and addresses all the issues along the way, ie imperial scaling from FBX, removing Autodesk’s Art renderer, and assigning your renderer of choice, deleting or layering the sun system etc etc.
For versatility, the script enables you to run components seperately, and save your custom default settings.
Click the icon to open the UI // Toggle Manage Links Dialog. Select your FBX.
Preset; Autodesk Revit – Combine By Revit Category. Attach this file.
Click Yes on the Daylight System EV Option if you like.
Bind the file // Files tab, Bind…
Running the Script // Click ‘Select all’, then hit >>Process Selected<<.
Multiple Layers // Some components such as stairs and railings create layers for each object. To fix this; Make the Stair layer Active, select all the layers with these objects, Select children, Add to active layer. You may want to consolidate other layers too. Right click and remove empty layers.
