With the last couple of meetings centered on the technical aspects of Revit (like construction and stairs) it may be worthwhile to bring up the more visual aspects of Revit; especially when it comes to using Revit as a presentation tool. After all, we are trying to communicate Design Intent are we not? Please take a break from your norm and join us in this part 1 of 2: Exploring the top 5 presentation techniques in Revit. We plan to discuss topics from non-photorealistic methods like Ambient Shadows, Exploded Views and 3D Section Perspectives to photo-real capabilities from the built-in mental ray render to the cloud render and interactive panoramic capabilities. To quote a popular song “Tonight’s going to be a good night…” so come live it up with us!

Key Topics: Revit, Presentation, Rendering
