Rendering in Revit Architecture, Part 1 - January 2008 - AUGI

The ability to render an item in any drafting program has been an elusive. Sure, there are Autodesk® VIZ and Autodesk® 3ds Max®. But those aren't drafting programs, are they? They are rendering programs. Yes, I know, AutoCAD® came out with a nice render engine in 2007, but that is a different story. Why? Well because of the fact that:

  1. You need to configure a viewport to print rendered. What a mess this is. You can never really tell what you are going to get until it's printed. Then the actual viewport eats all of the RAM from your drawing.
  2. Or

  3. You need to keep re–rendering it.

Both are bad scenarios. If you dump the file to a jpg or bmp…well, we all know how that looks. Being able to actually render something and save that rendering without killing the model is crucial to some projects. Especially in the "How much time did you spend on this job because we haven't really even won the bid yet" phase. Here, I give you the steps for rendering within Autodesk® Revit® Architecture.

The first step is to create a 3D view

Well, no matter how hard you try to render your models in Revit, it's never good enough. I wonder if Autodesk will replace Revit rendering engine with MentalRay as they did to AutoCAD...
