Comparison of the Top 6 Revit Rendering Plugins

The main goal of this article is to compare native Revit rendering plug-ins with their advantages and disadvantages so as to determine the best rendering plug-in.


Many people adore the old-fashioned ray-tracing plug-in VRAY. It’s not very impressive, let’s face it. VRAY is not a good choice for someone who presses for time. An interesting choice might be making custom textures and post-processing the image if you have a lot of time to spare.


1. An extremely precise and customizable rendering tool.


1. There is nothing beautiful about default textures. You may have to work long and hard to create your own textures.
2. For a realistic sky with clouds, you need Photoshop.
3. An unattractive default entourage appears in Revit by default.

Autodesk Cloud Rendering

When you continue to work on your Revit model, you can create renderings on the Autodesk server using Autodesk Cloud Rendering. There’s usually a slight improvement in the cloud rendering tool over the native rendering tool.


1. Colors look good.
2. Shadows look great.
3. It’s an interesting reflection.


1. There is a terrible sky that needs to be photo shopped out.
2. It would be nice if some elements were sharper, such as those on the right side.
3. It is not always easy to deal with cloud rendering services.

Revit Native Rendering

While the Revit native rendering isn’t as exciting as the Cloud rendering, it is a good alternative to this. With this tool, you need to put in a lot of work in Photoshop to create an image that you like.


1. There is no need to purchase additional software as it is built into Revit.
