The Bradley Virtual Design Tool (VDT) provides architects and designers self-service, photo-realistic product selection tools, within several pre-built restroom environments:

[ High Traffic ] - [ Institutional ] - [ Corporate ] - [ Hospitality ]

1) The Bradley VDT DESIGN tool offers to answer the most frequent client concern,

[ How will this lavatory-sink model appear within a space using my color selections? ]

2) The Bradley VDT COLLABORATION tool provides the answer to the next most important question,

[ How can I capture and share my design option decisions with my team and owner? ]

1) DESIGN Menu

 Designers choose a project environment (Location) for visualizing Bradley's Natural Quartz and/or Solid-surface lavatory basins, toilet partitions with wall and floor materials.

Designers select the Bradley Sinks, Faucet & Soap Dispenser Options and Toilet Partition Materials from the 'Left Margin Menu'.

Several Wall and Flooring Material Options are available with a choice of Camera positions.



 As designers select product models and materials for review; they need tools to share and obtain feedback from BOTH the Design Team and Facility Owner.


Designers can Download the configured image, Print, Email and/ or Share to Social Media using the Menu in the Lower Right Margin.



The Designers' selected products and materials are listed in the upper right corner menu.

Selecting a product in the menu, pops-up a rendered product image with the selected material.

ZOOM the image by 'Rolling' the Mouse Wheel or Use the + / - buttons.

HOLD DOWN the Mouse Pick button to spin a 360 Rendered View of the product.

Since 2009, the Bradley Revit Library has served the visualization needs of architects & interior designers.

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.

- 5 Revit Presentation Tips | Architect Steven Shell -

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.
