    Same issue here - Datasmith for Revit 4.25.3 and I get the error:

    Cannot export the 3D view: Can not get face for the specified Wall object at Autodesk.Revit.DB.CustomExporter.Export(View view) at DatasmithRevitExporter.DatasmithRevitCommand.Execute(ExternalCommandData InCommandData, String& OutCommandMessage, ElementSet OutElements)

    Same as every time I try and export a project recently. Yes the file has phasing, but this is an important part of the workflow in my office and can't be deleted.

    Hi, is there a solution yet? I've tried everything I could to import my Revit 2021 file into UE4 with the latest Datasmith 4.25 and FBX file, but both methods incurr errors. I have about 1GB size of Revit file, I also did trial and error by removing some of the contents of my Revit file and export them again and again to look for the faulty part/s in my model including the removal of all furniture, stairs, systems, and other models, and even ungrouping all my grouped models; but still no chance of succeeding. I even tried to remove all the walls (because I have a very detailed and complicated shapes for my walls---Islamic design), but the same error pops when exporting.

    Is there any solution to this yet? Thank you.

    I'm having similar problems in Revit 2020.2, has there been a fix yet?
    "3D view rendering is not supported in the running Revit."

    I've got the same problem, with any project. The fact is that I only got it on my workstation but not on my laptop. Both have the same Revit 2020.2, but not the same addins installed. The laptop has less addins and I can get the export done.

    What do you think? Could be one of these installed?

    Using 4.23 exporter on 4.24 project give me some strange behaviour on the material (the mesh from linked file come with the same and only material from default phase) never seen before.
    Get in touch with us in private (pierrefelix.breton@epicgames.com) and we will see what we can do.

    Yes it's a correct workflow at the moment, export in 4.23 and raise to 4.24 version then if you need.

    I just sent you the file. Thank you for your help.

    So far we have identified the issues on our side (the exporter plugin seems to trip over some entity types and fails). Ping me privately at pierrefelix.breton@epicgames.com if you have cases where our revit exporter crashes as reported in this forum we will see how we can help out.

    Hi all,

    If this could help : I have the same problem and I cannot export from revit to datasmith with the same export error message.
    The weird thing is that I can export an older file without problem (and only one...) but every other file has the same bug. I tried filters, removing phases, materials... and that doesn't help. I even tried to create a new file (revit 2020.2) from scratch with an official autodesk template and ... same error.

    The file that works on export was created with revit 2020 (not 2020.2), so I tried to convert that file to a template for a new project with revit 2020.2 and got the same export error as the other files.

    I tried to revert to revit 2020 without the 2020.2 patch, but every time I uninstall it, it installs the new one (2020.2) ...

    Perhaps the 2020.2 update may cause this problem ?
