Revit- Import DWGs for Quick Extrusions

Often times I find myself needing to create signage for our buildings in order to do renderings or have it for the elevations.

Sometimes you are lucky enough to get a signage design DWG from a consultant to be able to use. (In a future post I will cover a workaround if you aren’t this lucky)

In the past I found myself picking the lines of the DWG, but it is a pain. After some trial I found that you can actually import a DWG right into a sketch! This is especially useful if the signage requires a custom font or shape. My example below is really simple but demonstrates the idea.Check out the video below for the process.
