Who Can Benefit From This Class: 
Current Revit professionals interested in understanding the visualization capabilities native to Revit and how they can be applied to their own projects.

Revit is a powerful tool for documentation, but did you realize that it can also be used for visualization? With a few simple settings, you can create easy-to-read and understand schematic views in both 2D and 3D that can aid in conveying design intent and overall spatial character. From simple “white box” renderings, to simple colors, materials and lighting, Revit can be used to take your design and construction model to another level.

At the end of this course you will have learned the following:

  • The back-end settings to make your light and shadows as accurate as possible, including location and true north settings.
  • Graphic display, materials, lighting, and general visibility graphic settings that affect presentation views.
  • Additional information that can be added with decals and depth cueing
  • How to enhance 3D views with annotation
  • Settings to create “exploded” views with the Displace Elements tool

With this knowledge in hand, you will be able to move from documentation to presentation again and again in the same model. As the design is updated in the model, so are the presentation views, allowing you to quickly share changes as needed to allow for quicker approval. This will give you more time for the design process as you will need less time to create graphics.
