Fi2XML Export enables you to export your areas from Revit to a standardized Fi2XML file.

Note! This tool is only available in Swedish version.

The function creates a version 1.22 xml according to the Swedish organization for real-estate management information, Föreningen för Förvaltnings information.
Basically, the function writes information to all rooms and then export the rooms as Fi2 BTA, NTA and BRA areas. The BTA ("gross") area extends to the outside of exterior walls, the NTA ("net") is equal to the normal room area and the BRA ("usable") area is quite a complex area as including interior walls if the Department parameter of two adjoining rooms are the same, 15cm inside some walls and columns, etc.The function will not automatically create those complex limits for BRA - it's up to the user to create boundary lines on those walls and columns. The boundary lines for different Departments can be created using the Create BRA function.
More information about Fi2 is available at www.fi2.se.

The basic requirements to use this function correctly are:

1) Exterior and interior walls must have the appropriate function parameter set accordingly.

2) An Area plan must have been created. (With or without the Naviate Create BRA areas function).

3) Rooms that are to be included in the export must have been given Fi2 parameters as below.

Further important tips to improve the export result:

1) Do not overuse model-in-place walls - especially as room bounding elements, it might confuse the function.

2) Empty, enclosed areas such as shafts should also be given room objects.

3) Room separation lines also limits BTA and NTA, use Area separation lines to create white zones in BRA.

4) To make BRA go into walls, create Area separation lines.

5) Avoid empty places covered by areas, but not covered by rooms.

 The main functions of the Fi2XML export are:

Fi2XML Export Manager which writes the areas to the rooms and creates the xml file.
Tiff Exporter
for exporting area plans as .tif files.


Configure the basic settings for Fi2

On the settings page you are able to load a prepared Location Data file - this is a xml file in many cases provided by the administrator of the system which will process the Fi2XML file created from Revit.

Delivery Specification is an unimplemented function which will be able to check a model against set standards.

The Allow GUID editing checkbox allows you to change the GUIDs provided in the Location Data file.

Clicking the Location Data brings up either an empty settings window or, if you have loaded a Location Data file, the contents of that file.

This is where you select which Property, Building and Planes to send to the rooms.

Each property has it's own buildings and each building has it's own levels (planes).

The intended workflow is:

1) Select the rooms of a floor,

2) Click the Fi2XML settings/location data,

3) Select the correct combination and

4) Click OK

The Rooms are updated by adding Fi2 GUIDs to all rooms. A dialog box will appear, confirming the number of updated rooms.

When you Update Rooms, all the information on the three windows are written to special Fi2 parameters on each selected room.




After creating and updating the room parameters, the function enables the creation of Preview Region plans.

It creates Fi2 BTA, NTA, BRA Region Plans:

Fi2 BTA - “Gross” Area to the outside of the exterior walls.

Fi2 NTA – The same as the normal Room Area

Fi2 BRA - “Usable” Area

The last step is Exporting the Region Plan to Fi2xml which will open a dialog box that confirms the export and save of the Fi2xml file and display the directory path to the file.

Note! This tool is only present when Program Standard is set to "Sweden". Change Program Standard in Configure Naviate and restart Revit.
