I wanted to share and highlight one of our amazing tech previews for Revit users that is getting great feedback in our Autodesk Feedback Community where Autodesk pre-release alpha/betas and Autodesk Labs projects are managed. Project Expo brings Revit models to life in an interactive real-time environment on desktop, mobile, the web, or VR.
“Project Expo is expected to upend the visualization world for the entire AEC industry – giving you a new tool to wow your clients and to help make informed decisions – together – in real-time. Project Expo uses the Autodesk Stingray game engine, which was released in August 2015 to incorporate a recent acquisition of a gaming engine to move Revit models to this environment via Autodesk 3ds Max rendering software. With Project Expo technology under the hood, Autodesk’s cloud platform, and a truly simple one-button rendering in Revit, what more could you ask for? The experience is immersive, real-time and far more intimate between your firm and client. “
Twenty-five year veteran architect, Heather Johnston of PLACE architect, ltd., told Autodesk that “trying to get the images that we produce to really reflect the kind of energy and spirit and quality of light and quality of experience that I can see in my mind, that’s an ongoing puzzle. That’s been a dilemma for architects since Vitruvius.”
