V-Ray 3.6 for Revit is launched to improve your rendering quality

V-Ray 3.6 for Revit is launched by adding some avant-garde features to Revit along with rapid hybrid GPU + CPU rendering, photorealistic grass and fur, and rapid scene export. With a simplified UI, it becomes easier to generate stunning renders retaining your workflow as it is.

A webinar will be arranged on February 27 to demonstrate the new features of V-Ray 3.6 for Revit’s.

To register your seat online, click on the following link www.chaosgroup.com/vray

Given below, some exclusive features of V-Ray 3.6 for Revit:

RAPID SCENE EXPORT: Now render any complicated scenes four time faster with new optimizations and smart caching, translation.

NEW ASSET BROWSER: Demonstrates all materials and proxy objects, and facilitates you to choose and edit various materials.

STREAMLINED UI: Updated and simplified interface for a more intuitive, easy to use workflow.

V-RAY PROXIES: ArchVision RPC objects are employed as stand-ins for V-Ray proxy objects in your Revit scene to start rendering of high-resolution models of trees, cars, people and other entourage.

V-RAY GRASS & FUR: Render realistic grass and fur.

HYBRID RENDERING: V-Ray GPU operating on NVIDIA CUDA can now take complete benefits of all existing hardware along with GPUs and CPUs.

CLOUD RENDERING EARLY ACCESS PROGRAM: Chaos Group’s consistent cloud rendering service can now be accessible in V-Ray for Revit. To apply it, just click the cloud rendering button in V-Ray for Revit, or register at chaosgroup.com/cloud.

How to use Revit to produce rebar shape images

In some versions of Revit, it is possible to include an image to a family instance or type by using the “Image” or “Type Image” parameter.

Toward Rebar families specific there exist the “Shape Image” parameter, which allow to generate well formatted rebar bending schedules along with the rebar shape image.

Revit provides Rebar Shapes as per the local requirements and codes for various global countries. These Rebar Shapes don’t include these Shape Images so the users get the ability to customize this.

For rebar schedule demonstrations throughout demos of “Rebar with Revit”, I edited the default rebar shape families can be edited and the shape code images can be included to the Shape Image parameter by adhering to BS8666 : 2005. This can produce nice formatted bending schedules for a simple reinforced concrete tunnel.

One can download the content applied for this small model from below:
