nzdan | Visualise Revit conceptual designs fast with 3ds Max, mental ray and V-Ray (2010) Revit Technology Conference 2010

One of the things I love about technology and blogging is the connectivity it's given me to other passionate BIMmers from around the world. I just got an email from Dan Jurgens from Bates Smart in Australia who shared with me his presentation from RTC. It's great so I'm sharing it with all of you.

Zac and I presented the “Visualise Revit conceptual designs fast with 3ds Max, mental ray and V-Ray ” whitepaper at the RTC 2010 conference in May, please see all the details below.

“The Bach” is an ongoing project designing the renovation of a typical New Zealand Bach (holiday home) at Riversdale Beach. This paper explores the process of rendering the early conceptual designs in Revit and then migrating these models to 3ds Max to develop the renders using two of the most prolifically used render engines; mental ray and V-Ray

This class will provide an overview of both render engines, enabling attendees to choose and immediately produce the highest quality renders in either application.

Example of the mental ray render we create in this class.

Example of the V-Ray render we create in this class.

As we completed this whitepaper the 2011 product range was released which included a number of significant improvements. To address the early adopters in our audience we created the following video captures that demonstrate the process of creating these renders within the 2011 products.
