How Twinmotion 2018 is synchronized with Revit

This Revit video provides brief demonstration on Twinmotion 2018 that will launched very soon by Abvent. The newest version will be very useful for architectural visualization via 3D immersion with some simple clicks of the mouse.

Twinmotion 2018 is supported with Unreal Engine. It is very user-friendly and powerful for architects and designers to generate images, videos, panoramas and executable files.

Twinmotion 2018 offers real-time collaboration with ArchiCAD and Autodesk Revit. Given below, some exclusive features of the software :-

It produces photorealistic visualisations of buildings as well as imports models in a standard range of 3D file formats, together with FBX, DWG and DAE.

The Users will be able to develop background environments out of a library of stock models and textures, and attribute lights.

There are various types of atmospheric properties which range from clouds, rain and snow, as well as ambient lighting on the basis of geographical location and time of day. These are modified through slider-based controls.

 There also exist brush-based systems for editing topography or inserting animatiable vegetation to a scene, and a Bezier-based system for pathing animated crowds or traffic.

The software also comprises of a basic camera editor and a set of standard post-process effects.

3D Repo Has Launched New Version Of Its Cloud Software To Provide Support For Autodesk Navisworks And BIM Collaboration Format (BCF)

3D Repo has introduced the latest version of its cloud software that provides extra support for some of the globally recognized software packages suitable for the Engineering, Infrastructure and Construction industries, like Autodesk Navisworks. The new introduction of the cloud based BIM collaboration platform also offers improved support for large 3D models appropriate for infrastructure projects, along with integrated VR functionality to be used for training, safety and project consultation.

The support for native file formats and software platforms will facilitate the users to distribute 3D models, issues and finally the knowledge with the broader project team, in the cloud, within the framework of original model.

The newest versions of 3D Repo’s Open Source, Starter, Professional and Enterprise packages comprise of advanced incorporation with Autodesk Navisworks project review software. With the help of a custom plug-in, data can be uploaded directly to the 3D Repo knowledge base devoid of requiring tiresome process for exchanging files. It performs by decomposing and pushing the native Navisworks project directly into the 3D Repo platform online, rather than preserving it in files like traditional collaboration tools. Therefore, the users will be able to view models and collaborate with the broad project team via their web browser, even on very enormous and complicated projects. The users can access this plug-in on the Autodesk App Store at free of cost: https://apps.autodesk.com/NAVIS/en/Detail/Index?id=5149387925117816371

3D Repo has also asserted support for the BCF file format, facilitating import/export of collaboration and mark up data for issues tracking to software like Solibri quality assurance solutions, Trimble’s Tekla product family and 3D architectural BIM software ARCHICAD.

CAD2BIM Can Easily Convert Any 2D Cad Drawing Into 3D BIM Model

This cad tutorial video presents the demo of CAD2BIM. This cad program is developed by Handaz (a team of highly skilled Architects, Civil Engineers and Software Developers). It is a web based application that can be used to transform 2D CAD .dxf & .dwg developed with Autodesk Autocad as well as any other drawings into a 3D BIM (Building Information Modeling) model in IFC Building Smart format.

This format can be viewed on Autodesk Revit, Bentley AECosim, Graphisoft Archicad, 3Ds max or any BIM supported software. Handaz CAD2BIM applies libraries like xBIM, netDXF, Rhino3dmIO, Revit API for the revit plugin.

You can apply the following easy to follow processes to create the BIM model :-

• Make your project

• Upload your files
• Choose layers and blocks
• Obtain your BIM model

How To Generate 3D Interior Views In Revit Architecture

In this Revit video tutorial, Pierre Derenoncourt, a renowned AEC design technology specialist and environmental designer, briefly explains how to apply a 3D camera inside Revit to generate an interior view within a model.

In Revit Architecture, a camera can be placed once it is activated from your ribbon, View tab, Create panel. Click the small arrow adjacent to the 3D view, and click camera button on the drop down menu. Now the camera can be set with two simple clicks with camera position and target position.

As soon as the camera is set, Revit will open a new view automatically. This view will be appeared as what your camera see. Generally, we should have modified the view. Ensure modify is active and select the view boundary. Some blue grips on the rectangle sides will be visible. By dragging the grip, the boundary can be resized.

You can modify the movement of your camera around by holding [shift] + mid button.

To get more information, go through the following Revit Tutorial.
