BIM News: ODA Adds Support for Autodesk Revit 2022

ODA BIM technologies provide larger AEC industry with more interoperability thanks to new support for Revit 2022 files and data structure.


The Open Design Alliance (ODA), the leading provider of CAD and BIM interoperability solutions, announced today new support for version 2022 Autodesk® Revit® files in its BimRv SDK (software development kit).

BimRv is the industry’s only independent, stand-alone toolkit for Revit file interoperability.


The new BimRv’s database and APIs (application programming interfaces) have been updated to provide full access to all data in version 2022 Revit files. Older Revit files are automatically converted to the latest 2022 version upon loading providing client applications with consistent access to data regardless of the underlying file version.

“The release of version 2022 support confirms our ongoing commitment to the BIM industry for providing an open toolset for Revit data,” says Neil Peterson, ODA President. “Our BimRv user base has grown by more than 25 percent this year, driven by solid growth in the construction industry worldwide.”

BimRv has been developed through the ODA Strategic Interoperability Group initiative. This initiative has companies coming together to jointly fund and collaborate on key developments in the underlying technologies that make this interoperability possible and for the benefit of the entire AEC industry. Readers can see for more detail.

Availability and Pricing

Support for 2022 Revit files is available in BimRv version 22.8 and later. BimRv is an optional component available for purchase by Sustaining level and higher ODA members.
