The processing time of the uploaded REVIT file in the cloud depends on two variables; the size of the REVIT file and the version of REVIT from which the file was exported.
File Processing Notification
When the processing is complete you will receive an email informing you that the REVIT file has been successfully processed and you will be provided a link to the File Manager.
If a REVIT file was exported from a version of REVIT between the years of 2018 and 2020 additional processing time will be required to finish extracting data from the file. The user will be notified by email. Maximum processing time is 48 hours.
