Revit and points in DWG files when making topography

Sometimes you may have trouble using a DWG that contains 'points' to create a Revit topography.

There are two main ways around this.

METHOD 1
Here is a LISP routine to export points in a DWG to CSV file:

These points can then be imported when making a Revit topography by selecting 'Specify Points File' on the Ribbon.

via
RevitCity.com | Topo point does not import?


METHOD 2
Alternatively, you can Replace the points with some other object that Revit will make use of more easily (for instance, a block with some very short lines).  To do this, use the 'RP' LISP routine from the following post:

  1. ah, the lisp for exporting out a point file will certainly come in handy! Much rather have that in an archive than a dwg with blocks. Thanks for posting the link!
