Revit Core Engine now available on Design Automation for Inventor

Previously, if you wanted to export an Inventor document to *.rfa (Revit family file type) on Design Automation for Inventor then you had to export to a format that Revit understands, and then pass it to a Design Automation for Revit work item to produce a Revit family file from it.   

Now you can achieve all that directly on Design Automation for Inventor since Revit Core Engine (which is used by the BIM Content add-in) is now available on that service too.

You can have a look at the source code of the https://inventor-config-demo.autodesk.io/ sample to see how that can be done:
