Two of our employees were working on a little project linking Revit and Max. Mark created a model in Revit Architecture and exported it to 3ds Max (hold on everyone...it's just 2008, not 2009, but we'll get to that soon enough). Richard took the model and created 6 renderings.
It took Richard 30 hours to create all 6 renderings. That may seem like a long time, but he says it would have taken over 60 hours if he had to do it from an AutoCAD drawing.
Richard's work is exquisite and if you're looking for a an outsourced renderer to give life to your Revit models, visit Richard's site at www.cubestudiosinc.com and let him know I referred you to him.
Now that Mental Ray will be the rendering engine, we'll see how much more time it saves architects to create high quality renderings from their Revit models.
