Architects and designers, are you seeking for ways to improve your visualizations? Lumion and Revit are your best options. You may produce breathtaking, lifelike simulations of your architecture plans by combining these two potent software programs.
We’ll demonstrate how to use Lumion with Revit to produce stunning visuals that will astound your clients and stakeholders in this article. It will be addressed in detail how to export your Revit model to Lumion, set up your scene, update your visualization, and sync your changes back to Revit.
Step 1: Export your Revit model to Lumion.
To begin, you must first install the Lumion LiveSync Revit plugin. By fast exporting your Revit model to Lumion with this plugin, you can make sure that any changes you make in Revit are immediately reflected in Lumion.
Simply choose “Start LiveSync” from the “Lumion” menu in Revit after installing the plugin. You may view your Revit model in real time by exporting it to Lumion.
Download Lumion LiveSync for Revit
Lumion LiveSync for Revit plug-in includes two capabilities : LiveSync and a Collada (.DAE) exporter. Now, you can export a Collada (.DAE) file from Revit and import (or re-import) it easily into Lumion, as well as see and modify your Revit model in Lumion in real-time.
Revit LiveSync with Lumion
Set up a live, real-time visualization between Lumion and Revit right away. You can alter the Revit model’s shape and watch the stunning, lifelike environment of Lumion reflect those changes in real time.
You can view your project in Lumion while modeling in Revit, and it will be surrounded by a realistic, fully featured landscape (mountains, river, grass). While photorealistic lighting dramatically heightens your sense of surroundings, realism, and depth, beautiful materials make the design “pop.”
synchronizing materials in real time
Apply any of the 1000+ high-definition materials in Lumion’s editor to instantly give your synchronized Revit model alive. You can precisely adjust the materials while you work on the design and then save your material layouts for later rendering.
synchronizing points of view in real time
LiveSync now offers point-of-view synchronization in real time. When you turn it on, you’ll instantly adopt the Revit camera perspective, which will make your work simpler, quicker, and more enjoyable.
automatic importation of models
Lumion will automatically import your Revit model while setting up the LiveSync connection. Even after LiveSync is turned off, you can still edit and add to your project, and you can quickly save the file as an.LS for further rendering or development.
Step 2: Create your scene in Lumion.
You can start building up your scene now that you’ve exported your Revit model to Lumion. To produce attractive visualizations, you can utilize a variety of materials, lighting, and other effects with Lumion.
Start by incorporating elements into your setting, like wood, metal, or concrete in Lumion. To set the correct tone and ambience, add lights next. To make your vision more realistic, you can also add elements like fog or rain.
Step 3: Improve your visualization in Lumion
After creating your scene, you may fine-tune your visualization by changing the camera angles, including animations, and modifying the lighting and other effects in Lumion. You can generate animations and walkthroughs of your design with Lumion, which is incredibly helpful for presentations and client meetings.
To achieve the desired look, don’t be scared to experiment with various settings and effects. Keep in mind that the objective is to produce a visualization that faithfully captures your design and aids in better communicating it to your clients and stakeholders.
Step 4: Sync your modifications with Revit.
You can use the LiveSync plugin to sync changes you make to your Lumion visualization back to Revit. This enables you to update your Revit model with any modifications you make in Lumion.
To sync your changes back to Revit, you must select the “Sync” button in Lumion. You can see the effects of adjustments made to the Revit model as you make them.
The breathtaking representations of your architectural designs you can create by combining Lumion with Revit will astound your clients and stakeholders. Lumion enables you to exhibit your creations in a way that is both interesting and educational by using real-time rendering, a variety of materials, and effects.
What are you still holding out for? Take your visualizations to the next level by integrating Lumion with Revit right away!
