.rfa File Extension

Developer: Autodesk
File type: Revit Family File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .rfa. Files with the file extension .rfa can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .rfa files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .rfa file?

The Revit Family File is stored in the RFA format and is affixed with the RFA extension, and is used by Revit. These RFA files are generally classified as data files that contain one or more 3D models that can be imported into a three dimensional scene and were created and saved using the Revit Family Editor. RFA files contain BIM (Building Information Modeling) data and require Autodesk Revit software. These files are also known as Autodesk Revit file. The Autodesk Revit software is used by architects and engineers to design and model. The Revit model is based on a compilation of items called families. The compiled items refer to the parametric objects such as 3D building objects and two dimensional drafting objects. Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013, Autodesk Revit Structure 2013, Autodesk Revit MEP 2013 software can be used in Microsoft Windows based systems to access and read RFA files.

how to open a .rfa file?

Launch a .rfa file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .rfa file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .rfa files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .rfa file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .rfa file will open the correct application.

Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013

Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013

Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013 is an architectural design software that used mainly for Building Information Modeling (BIM) and for capturing and analyzation of design, design documentation, and construction. It provides models that will help in making informed design decisions to be able to support sustainable designs, fabrication, construction planning and clash detection. The basis for all building components that are designed in Revit is the Parametric Components or Families which helps in designing cabinetry and equipment or building parts, walls and columns. It also features a collaborative design process called the Revit Server which enables users to share models across the project team even if they are on different locations. It has an integrated collection of models on a single server which is accessible by users from the local server. This process allows multiple users to share information and save their projects in a central file. The built-in Redundancy helps in keeping this process secure an protected in cases where there's loss in WAN connectivity.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .rfa files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .rfa. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
