    Default Can a kind soul help me open a .fbx file from Revit?

    I was sent a .fbx file (model) exported from Revit to give a bid, I use Modo and also have Cheetah 3D and neither program can open the file for some reason.

    If I sent someone the file could you try to open it in 3D Studio Max and export as .3ds or .obj for me?

    Thank you.

    Autodesk makes a free FBX converter that might help you out.

    Looks like it's for turning into .fbx.

    The Autodesk® FBX® SDK is a free, easy-to-use, C++ software development platform and API toolkit that allows application and content vendors to transfer existing content into the FBX format with minimal effort.

    It also converts a FBX to 3ds, DWG, OBJ, or COLLADA.

    Not sure, but that sounds more complex than what I rememeber. Are you launching the UI version, or trying to accomplish it from command line?

    I had the wrong download, I got it now. It didn't want to install on my Mac but I got it installed on the PC but it crashed on everything but .3ds format - no materials came through assigned unfortunately. Anyhow, I opened the file and it's enough to give them a bid so thank you.
