Onuma to Revit 2009


ONUMA, Inc. is committed to open standards exchanges. At the same time we want to give access to other options. So, we created a plugin for Revit 2009 that manages spaces to the furniture and equipment level. This added functionality allows you to enjoy a rapid planning & design process using Revit 2009 and Onuma. Keep in mind since you are only dealing with SPACES, SLABS and EQUIPMENT in Onuma, you can very quickly test numerous schemes in Onuma before exporting to Revit and modeling the more detailed components such as doors, windows, roofs, etc. Your building is also available in a wide variety of other file formats in Onuma.

This Help file covers:
