New Extension for Revit Exports Models Directly to Sketchfab for Online Sharing

Sketchfab, the powerful architectural visualization software and database, is more convenient than ever thanks to a new extension for Revit developed by Emanuel Favreau of Montreal firm Larose McCallum Architects. Adding Revit to Sketchfab's extensive list of software add-ons is a big win for the Building Information Modeling (BIM) community. The new extension will allow Revit users to export models and scenes directly to Sketchfab, where they can be viewed in 3D and virtual reality from any device simply by following a link.

Sketchfab's jump into the BIM scene allows for complex and detailed building models done in Revit to be quickly shared and reviewed with clients. The extension strips away the majority of BIM-related information in the model, leaving the essential geometric and visualization information needed to create the VR and animation-compatible models.

To see if this new tool fits into your workflow, you can find out more about Sketchfab and the Revit extension here.

Correction Update: This article originally identified the Revit extension as an official release by Sketchfab. It was in fact created by Emanuel Favreau of Larose McCallum Architects, although Sketchfab has offered the creators feedback and support for the extension.
