Helix - AutoCAD to Revit: Doors Category

Hi guys

I’m testing out the Helix app and can’t seem to get doors to populate in revit from the CAD file.

How does the app recognise doors from CAD? Is it through a path? is it the straight line of the door leaf panel in the closed position? or the arc of the door swing?

In CAD i’ve tried a circle, a point, a line and an arc in my ‘doors layer’ but none of them seem to translate into the Revit file.

Any pointers? Thanks


The doors are calculated by the block with linework assigned to the layer specified. Without the block, we don’t have a current way to group the contiguous lines that define the door. However, this is something we can add in the future.
