You can now export all or a subset Revit files within a folder (up to 3 levels of depth from the root folder) as props or projects. The hierarchy of the folders and files is preserved in the export.

To use this feature, hit the new Batch Export button:

Select either as Projects or as Props depending on the intended result.

Check / Uncheck the files you want to export / not export respectively.

Specify the output location you would like to export these files to and the batch export begins.

Feature Notes

  • Revit files which are lower than the current version will be automatically upgraded

  • User will be required to click through Revit UI / popups as they appear, including workset selection, errors.

Export By Selected Views

With this setting checked, users can export views within a single Revit files as separate USDs. Depending on whether the user has selected prop or project export, the USDs are combined into a single project or not.

This feature is intended for models whose elements are separated by views showing worksets, phases, or other forms of categorization set by the user.

Similar to the Batch export UI, users can select which views to export. For example, this Brownstone model has views separating interior, exterior and FF&E elements:

When exported as a project to Omniverse, elements in views are exported as separate USD files and combined into a single project (viewed in Create):

Feature Notes

  • If an element is shown in multiple views, it will be exported to each USD representing that view.

  • Names of exported views take the provided name of the file in the export UI + the name of the view.

Export Log

With logging enabled in settings, warnings and errors encountered in export as surfaced in a simple UI after export. This can provide some clarity on elements which failed to convert.
