This time we are sharing our Tips&Tricks article that was published in RevitCommunity some time ago. Hope it can be useful not only for RevitCommunity readers but for our blog followers too. So please read and benefit from advices on how to work smarter without using Revit plugins.
To get more realistic and high quality render requires a lot of time working on details. However we don’t always need to have exact details or spend time on them, therefore there are big model libraries on the internet for rendering purposes. Those might contain trees, grass, site elements, furniture, and so on.
Unfortunately those are usually not suitable for Autodesk® Revit® as they are mostly used by visualization professionals who use visualization software like 3ds Max, Cinema 4D, etc. However we can get quite good results using one of the suggested Revit rendering engines.
First, I would suggest you to begin with a separate Revit project for our rendering and then just link the main project into it. In that case, we won’t overload our main project with all detailed geometry that will be used only for rendering purposes.
