Work in a 3ds max class.

Although not a final polished image. Thought I would share some of the tings we are covering in one of my classes. Opacity maps, creating a background image/cutout, foliage, entourage objects (man/car).

TV Stand AutoCAD Block to Revit Family

In order to illustrate how to use an AutoCAD entourage element in Revit, today we took a simple AutoCAD block and converted it into a Revit Family. Naturally, the resulting Revit family had no paramerters, none the less it is good for objects which have fixed sized. Not everything needs to flex you know.

Here is the object as it appeared in AutoCAD.

Once we imported it, and added materials in Revit.

The AutoCAD file can be downloaded here.

The Revit family can be downloaded here.

Hope you like them, cheers

Window Uneven Panel Revit Family

In class this week we went over how to create a window family. The project we are working on has an uneven panel window. Looking back I found another version that I made a few years ago. If you like download the 2 versions and hopefully you will like one or the other.

You can download the 2016 version here

The 2018 version is available here

Renders in Revit, Enscape and 3ds Max (ART renderer)

Here are some comparative rendered images I created, The original model and first render is in Revit. The second is in 3ds Max using the ART renderer which was introduced in 2017, and the final one was from Enscape which I tested in the fall of 2018
Original Image rendered in Revit. All materials are created in Revit.
Imported Linked into 3ds Max 2017 and using the new ART Renderer. Note loss of entourage elements and sky background.
Enscape render which works as a plugin to Revit. Entourage elements conserved and note enhancement of grass material.
