STF Exporter plugin for Revit to DIALux


Revit <--> DIALux interoperability

Add-in for Revit that exports Spaces along with Light fixtures within those spaces out to the .STF file format used by DIALux software for photometry calculations. Work is being performed to bring changes back into Revit to continue the design workflow.

To use:

1. Download sourcecode and build solution.
2. Copy both .dll and .addin file to your Revit Add-Ins folder (C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\VERSION)
3. Start Revit instance, command located in Add-Ins Tab, External Tools

Example video of workflow:

Known Issues:

  • You will have to re-map light fixture types in DIALux after first import, but Locations and elevations are correct (this is DIALux problem, not Revit)
  • If using Imperial measurements: Measurements/distances will be off slightly. (This is due to DIALux conversions of units from meters to Feet/Inches. Even when getting exact from Revit out to STF, DIALux still converts back to feet/inches not exact)
