exporting from Revit Lt with a .dwg then importing to lumion as .dwg and it says error: cannot open file. I have obviously installed DWG to Lumion Bridge but there was only options for lumion 6.5, 7 & 8 not 7.5?????


Is there something I'm missing
HELP PLEASE!!!!

Hi libbie

Welcome  :)

1. Did you install DWGToLumionBridge2017 from here: ?

2. Do you see an install folder in your Program Files folder for example: "C:\Program Files\Act-3D\DWG To Lumion Bridge 2017"

Lumion v7.5 is covered by the 2017 installer.

3. When exporting did you export a 3D drawing or was it in 2D.

You can send us the DWG file for checking. Instructions here.

I did download the bridge from lumion site.

It worked once I exported as a 2013 format .DWG file.

OK, thanks for the update.  Good to know you have something that is now working with Lumion.  :)

I do not currently have Revit LT 2018 installed, but Revit LT 2017 only supported DWG 2013 or less.  Revit 2018 exports to DWG 2018, and 2013 or less. So without installing Revit LT 2018 I expect it too would export the same as Revit 2018.

That then matches the DWGToLumionBridge2017 version as it was earlier than Revit 2018, so would only support 2013 and no 2018 DWG format.  The new DWGToLumionBridge2018 does support DWG 2018, but is Lumion v8 only at this time.

ps: are you aware there is a full featured and content Pro Trial version of Lumion V8 (recently released)?  See our Knowledge Base ArticleIs there a Demo or Trial version of Lumion?
