Hi everyone.

 I have been asked by a large architectural firm to create presentation floor plans to go along with my presentation images created in revit 2009.

 I have tried Revit and autodesk impressions to create the floor plans, but neither of them can produce the image that they require.

I have attached an image of what the floor plan should look like.( the scan quality is not great, but the general idea of the furniture, cars. etc) Would any one be able to let me know which software they use or would be able to create floor plans like this.

 Thanks to anyone who could possible help.

The quality you are looking for can be achived in Revit and/or 3dsMax.

You can try these two methods:

 1. set up a camera looking straight down--"orient camera to View--top.

set up lighting, materials for floors, carpet, furniture, etc. in Revit.

Render the view in Revit/Mental Ray.


2. Export the Revit file, from the 3d camera view, via FBX and import into 3dsMax 2009,

add lighting, tweak materials, and render the view.

See the attached floor plan done in Revit only.  Its fairly low res - the original was much higher.

I would personally choose to do that in Illustrator over photoshop.  You would create a layer that is the closed polyline of tye walls with a solid fill and then add a drop shadow effect to it.  The furniture would be done in a similar way of createing closed lines with gradiated fills and slight drop shadows to make it appear 3d.
