SOLIDWORKS models can be quickly opened up in Autodesk Revit. Here are the steps to do so:
Step 1 – Export from SOLIDWORKS:
Open the 3d model in SolidWorks. Now save the model as either IFC 4 (.*ifc) or IFC 2×3 (.*ifc) through File > Save as > select the type as one of the IFC file types (.*ifc).
You can use save as type as IFC 4 or IFC (2X3). IFC (2X3) works for older versions of Revit and IFC 4 works for newer versions of REVIT. If one doesn’t work try another one.
Step 2 – Select Export options for IFC file types:
Click on Options > this launches the system options dialog box and select the various output options to export the IFC file with custom properties that include the IFC metadata along with other properties.
Step 3 – To open the file in Revit:
Go to File > Open > Click on IFC option > browse and open the file and you should see the 3d model will open in REVIT, as shown in image below.
