Customization and Standards
RVT 2 DWG currently offers four different standards: PWGSC Atlantic, PWGSC NCA, PWGSC Ontario, and NS DTI (Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure). However, if your company requires conversion to a different company standard not listed, the developers are open to adjusting the software to meet your specific requirements. This commitment to customization ensures that the plugin caters to diverse needs and industry standards.
The Conversion Process
Utilizing RVT 2 DWG is a straightforward three-step process. Firstly, before creating the model, users need to familiarize themselves with the pre-built Revit families that come bundled with the conversion utility. These families, such as TitleBlocks, Elevation, Section and Detail Markers, are specific to each standard and ensure compliance with the desired conversion standard.
Secondly, users can take advantage of the Revit Export to CAD conversion utility, which maps Revit objects to AutoCAD layers as closely as possible based on the chosen standard. While Revit's export function provides a solid foundation, it often introduces inconsistencies in Text Styles, Dimension Styles, and layers. This is where the third and final step comes into play.
The RVT 2 DWG conversion utility, which can be run in batch mode using ScriptPro, takes the DWG file created by Revit with the specified template and cleans up any messy elements. This ensures that the resulting DWG file passes any Quality Assurance checks and guarantees a seamless transition from Revit to AutoCAD.
Installation and Support
Installation support for RVT 2 DWG is provided free of charge. In case users require additional product support, it can be purchased separately. After purchasing the software and completing the payment process, users will receive an email containing an Install Key. This Install Key is essential for the installation and operation of the plugin, ensuring a secure and seamless experience.

Pre-Requisite: PWGSC QA Check
Before submitting your converted DWG file to PWGSC (Public Works and Government Services Canada), a mandatory Quality Assurance check must be performed. As part of the QA check, users are required to download and install the FREE PWGSC Atlantic CAD Standard software. This software provides the necessary PWGSC Color Tables for printing, ensuring compliance with PWGSC requirements.
It is important to note that this app utilizes a custom installer, different from the standard App Store installer. This ensures a smooth and efficient installation process, tailored to the unique needs of RVT 2 DWG and PWGSC integration.
