DWG formats are used for Autodesk’s AutoCAD software. Drawing sheets can be exported to DWG in IMPACT Revit and later opened in AutoCAD from Project manager. Export to DWG command is available in IMPACT Revit in IMPACT view under Create Shop Drawings falling menu.


1.The first step is to draw the desired elements and then save them by using the saving command in IMPACT Revit.
