When importing an RFEM file into the Autodesk Revit, I get the error message 'Unable to Create Extrusion'. How to correct the error?


Due to modeling inaccuracies, the import is not possible so that the error message shown in Figure 1 is displayed. Thus, the surface 1 shown in Figure 2 is not absolutely planar. The coordinate X of nodes 1-4 is not equal. If this modeling inaccuracy is eliminated, the import is possible.
