What are RFA files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a RFA file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.

What is a RFA file?

A .RFA file is a Revit Family Architecture Project file.

This is a proprietary data file format that was developed by Autodesk for one of their CAD software products. Classified as 3D graphics and CAD data files, these RFA files are also known as Autodesk Revit Architecture family files. The Revit Architecture software from Autodesk is a program for Windows PCs that allows users to create building and construction design projects.

Files in the RFA format are part of a design model that has been created using the Autodesk Revit Architecture software. Compilations of design items for Revit Architecture models are also known as families. These .rfa files may be part of system families, which are stored within a Revit Architecture model. Hosted families can also include RFA files. These hosted families are external resources that can be stored outside a Revit Architecture model.
