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.

PCL Construction Has Launched PCL PartsLab To Leverage BIM For Construction

PCL Construction, has developed a robust free plug-in known as PCL PartsLab that will empower the construction professionals to apply Revit data for Takeoff, Estimating, Scheduling, and Project Management. PCL PartsLab will significantly minimize the time necessary for generating and utilizing Revit Parts in construction models. This plugin can decompose slabs, walls, columns and other BIM components automatically into subcomponents maintaining their accessible geometric, property, and metadata.

Therefore, the estimators and other project personnel will be able to employ more BIM in their day-to-day workflow to improve accurateness and minimize risk.

PCL PartsLab helps in leveraging models from the design teams and simultaneously relates those models to reproduce construction means and methods devoid of affecting the completeness of the design model.

With the consolidation between Revit Parts and PCL PartsLab, the customers can obtain more suitable data to collaborate with utilizing the Assemble platform.

To gather more information on PCL PartslLab, please visit partslab.pcl.com

Use Revit Live To Transform Any Revit Model Into Virtual Reality

This Revit video briefly describes how the users can transform their 3D design models into virtual reality by applying Revit Live. Any Revit model can be converted into an immersive visualization with a single click of the mouse. It will authenticate the decisions you take for your designs as well as allot your ideas or views with the client.

To start the process, you should require a compatible PC and any of the HTC Vive headset or the Oculus Rift headset together with the oculus touch controller. A VR button is situated in the bottom right corner of Live.

Explore your Revit/Revit LT model within minutes with automated data preparation in the cloud.

Take your Revit/Revit LT model into a virtual-reality environment, and experience your design.

Automatically transfer and access valuable BIM data in your model.

It’s easy to get started. Download a 30-days free trial by clicking on the following link www.autodesk.com/products/revit-live/overview

Demo Of Lumion Plugin For Revit

This Revit video tutorial demonstrates LiveSync feature available in Lumion Plugin for Revit to view the modifications already made in Revit in Lumion.

This plugin is compatible with Revit® 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

With the Lumion plugin for Revit, the users can view their Revit model in real-time in Lumion, along with export a Collada (.DAE) file from Revit and load (or reload) it coherently into Lumion.

Exporter: With exporter it is possible to export a Collada file from Revit®. This file is loaded directly into Lumion. While making any modification in Revit®, it is required to save a new file and click the reload button in Lumion.

Lumion LiveSync®: It facilitates a real-time superior quality 3D view of your Revit® design. The plugin for Revit® generates a live connection with Lumion, in order that all modifications in Revit® can be shown in real-time in Lumion.

Live synchronization can accelerate the speed of work, for instance in the initial phase of design, when repeated adjustments are made to your Revit® model.

To run the plugin, you should require a Lumion (7.3 and above) license.

How To Use Spacing Naming Tool In Revit Mep

Earlier, Space Naming tool was an add-in. Now it is integrated with the software. This generally applied functionality is set up with Revit, making the method easy for getting up and running.

Space Naming tool can be applied for renaming spaces in the MEP model to the room names and/or numbers out of a connected architectural model.

Thus, one can get rid of allocating names manually to the spaces and save huge time and make the workflow simple.

In order to recognize spaces devoid of room names while matching the spaces to rooms, just follow this simple trick – prior to add spaces, set the connected architectural model to room bounding in type properties.
