How To Use IES Light In V-Ray For Revit

This video is created by Chaos Group that shows how to apply lights (IES lights) in V-ray for Revit.

IES light type is applied to load and render naturalistic light distribution profile files (IES files). The icon is available in the V-Ray main toolbar.

V-Ray for Revit is compatible with IES lights in the project. If the IES light files are untraceable in any of the search paths in v-ray, it applies a generic IES file that lusters light uniformly in all directions.

An IES file refers to a text file that defines the depth of a light source at points on a spherical grid. It offers more photorealistic lighting effects in rendered images as compared to other types of light distribution.

V-Ray for Revit facilitates to enable and disable light groups in the Revit. Light groups are obtained by selecting the Rendering Settings in the view properties of the view to be rendered, and clicking on the ‘Artificial Lights’ button. This button is activated if the lighting scheme is arranged to a mode with artificial lights allowed.

Steps associated with MEP Coordination Systems

MEP coordination is considered as one of the most vital process in construction that should be given special attention. The system makes sure that the structural framework and architectural design are not conflicted with its MEP-FP systems. Based on the level of details (LOD) and need of the client, the MEP coordination method differs in every organization. MEP Coordination Systems contains the following stages :-

1. Assessment of Consultant Design Drawings and Structural/Architectural Plans: Preliminary, the MEP coordination service facilitates the organization to obtain single line drawings from the MEP-contractors or consultants. Afterward, they study the structural and architectural plans thoroughly. Besides, they study the MEP specifications except for the assessment of drawings, layouts with reliability. Finally, MEP coordination services provider designs a brief plan for coordination.

2. 3D Prototype Formation: To fulfill the need in initial phase, the MEP coordinator generates an accurate 3D model by applying AutoCAD or Revit. This 3D model demonstrates total MEP services with adherence to the architectural and structural conditions of the building. Besides, this entire model acts as the base for various other important development-related plans, elevations or sections. MEP coordinator employs the 3D model for client inputs as well as generating complete walkthroughs.

3. Conflict detection and Resolution: In this phase, the 3D model set up earlier is tested for clashes among the MEP systems and the design elements. For this, they use Navisworks, a particular clash-detection software application. It detects all types of clashes like workflow clashes, geometry-related hard clashes, and clearance clashes. Besides, the MEP coordinator detects possible alternatives and deliver them to the clients.

4. Formation of Coordinated Sections and Drawings: Once a 3D model is tested for vertical and horizontal coordination, then the drawing sets are arranged to demonstrate how MEP-FP systems function in coordination as well as for more transparency, annotation and tagging process. The organizations who are liable to control MEP coordination can get elevation, section, and isometric views from the 3D model produced earlier. Besides, these can be applied for client explanations.

5. Formation of Detailed Service Drawings: In this stage, all the structural service-by-service drawings are generated and the details are included with reference to their dimensions like heights, and distances from gridlines. Site installation teams utilize these drawings and develop the base for fabrication drawings.

6. Formation of Spool, Fabrication Drawings, and Hangar Drawings: On basis of the scope of work, particular services drawings are utilized to generate fabrication drawings through some software or detailing. These drawings illustrate fabrication features for ductwork, and hence the CNC machines can directly identify them for rendering purposes.

If required, the MEP coordination unit also indicates the details of the model to create spooling data for production crews. Except for this, the firm can even plan out and then demonstrate the hangars for every design. As soon as the plan is made, the hangar specifications are provided on a list for the production units.

In MEP coordination systems, some steps may be omitted with regards to the scope of the project. Although each point is important for completing any project successfully devoid of any setbacks, additional cost, and unanticipated design amendments.

7. As-Fitted Modifications: This final step is associated with making modifications to the design model and the pictures because of some site changes from the construction designs. If the coordination work is perfect, and the installation is done according to the construction drawing directions and plans, the amendments to the as-fitted (also defined as as-installed and as-built) designs are least amount.

ARCHICAD 22 is launched by GRAPHISOFT

GRAPHISOFT has introduced ARCHICAD 22, the updated version of ARCHICAD building information management (BIM) software. Given below, some exclusive features of it.

Better Facades: The Curtain Wall tool is entirely redesigned and transformed to a real design tool rather from just a modeling tool.

The new Curtain Wall tool contains an interactive preview, where it is possible to arrange your required facade design with frames and watch it appear on the wall. If it is required to employ a repeating pattern, the pattern can be produced in the preview tool, and can be selected how many times you want it to repeat on each wall. If you prefer to apply the similar facade patterns among projects are required, you can arrange the design in your Favorites folder, where it is easily accessible. To deal with more complex facade design, the frame tool can be applied to sketch or trace a pattern, then utilize it just as you would a regular frame.

One can also obtain 3D shapes and structures as part of your facade, and formed with standard “smart frames” that automatically modify their borders when it is required to cut or relate panels.

The Rhino-Grasshopper Connection: The Curtain Wall tool also performs in collaboration with Rhino’s Grasshopper tool, a visual programming environment that facilitates you to produce generative algorithms.

Practically, it signifies that one can generate patterns that function in the background of your facade pattern, like making the pattern tiles smaller on one part of the facade than on another or making organic shapes within your patterns. It also facilitates you to import photos or images as a pattern, in spite of drawing the pattern freehand directly in the curtain wall tool.

Parametric Building Components: In ARCHICAD 22, the parametric standard elements and non-parametric custom profiles are merged to create intelligent profiles for elements as well as manage their shapes and sizes and their cross-section through BIM parameters. It allows you to model various components (e.g., one column or beam that has to be slightly longer) with the equivalent profile. The auto text label that is created will automatically modify on the basis of which components it is dragged to.

Expressions: The new Expression Defined Properties capability facilitates the users to acquire more organized information from the model devoid of too much manual work. The new capability allows you to utilize any information accessible in the project (e.g., number of rooms, floor area, wall height) in custom expressions to answer questions like “How many boxes of tiling do we need for the floor?”

The product of these expressions is also utilized in other expressions. As for instance, you wanted to know the cost of those tiles, you could plug your first expression into a second expression.

Updates to BIMx: BIMx’s Hyper-model is a suitable way for integrated 2D and 3D building project navigation. But, in earlier version, it could only be seen on a mobile device. This version contains a web viewer that facilitates you to navigate and explore the building from a browser. It allows access to the complete Hyper-model, as well as an auto play mode is included that flows automatically through saved favorite views of the building. To end with, these BIMx walk-through videos are implanted into a website, facilitating the architects to generate online portfolios which comprise of 3D project images.
