Revit 10-Step Guide to Setup Lights for Interior Renderings

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Apr 28, 2016 9:40:03 AM


You place your Revit camera in your Revit floor plan and and point to a target point across the space to display the perspective image of that space.

Next, you pick the Revit Render button --and Presto! You get a 'black screen' view of your room.

If there's an exterior window, portions of the room may appear from the exterior sun light coming thru the window.

You can see the lights in your reflected ceiling plan; but the lights don't produce light in your room.

Here's a startup sequence for Turning ON the Lights for Revit Interior Renderings.

The first step to turning on the lights for Revit Interior renderings is choosing one of the 2 lighting schemes that use Artificial lights (ceiling an/or walls).

1) Make sure you've placed your Revit lights in the ceiling and/or on your walls
2) Go to your 3D View that you wish to Render.
3) Pick RENDER command ( VIEW Tab > RENDER)
4) To access interior  lights specify a Lighting Scheme that uses Artificial Lighting

5) Next, select Artificial Lights

6) Create a new light group for lights that are located in the specifc space that will be rendered.

7) Next, select the Group Name and pick Edit

8) Pick the Add button in the pop-up dialogue box to add light fixture models to the Group.

9) At this time, you may need to go to the Reflected Ceiling plan to select the lights to place in this group.

* If all the lights are visible in the view, select them without going to the Reflected Ceiling Plan.

Download Bradley Revit Custom Material Catalogs

Posted by Jason Dodge on May 5, 2011 11:28:06 AM

Bradley has created custom Revit Material Catalogs for all materials specific for Bradley products. We recently revamped all our Material Catalogs to meet the growing needs of all Revit users. We have Material Catalogs for Evero (Verge), Baked Enamel (Partitions), HDPE Plastic (Partitions & Lockers), Quartz (OmniDecks), Terrazzo (Washfountains & Multi-Founts) & Terreon (Lav Systems & OmniDecks). You can find these all on our Bradley BIM Library page.

All materials meet Autodesk Seek guidelines and the naming convention is consistent with materials already supplied in Revit. What makes our Material Catalogs special is they are all attached to "Chips" in a .rvt file (shown above) and can be simply copied from the .rvt file and pasted into your Project. The beauty of this is you do not need to go through the Transfer Project Standards dialogue box and transfer all the materials included in that .rvt file. This saves you on file space and keeps your Material Library clean from unwanted materials.

When you download our Material Catalogs you will receive them as separate .zip files. Inside those .zip files you will find the .rvt file and all the corresponding .jpg files that make up the materials. These .jpg files are required for rendering purposes. I advise that you paste all the .jpg files into your own personal Material Library that you have Revit search when you do your renderings. Once pasted in that Library you will never have to access those .jpg files again. Revit will automatically search in that assigned folder to attach the image to the material.
