I like it not bad for your first project. I too am getting into a similar project and have never done a parking garage I was wondering if you would post the file for me to have a look at?

First project???? That's a GREAT job!!! What tutorial/lessons have you been using? I've been using Residential Design using Revit 8 by Daniel Stine and think it's the best book for learning.

I am still not all that skilled at rendering in Revit, and the project shown above required a highly detailed rendering. In the past we have always sent out 2D CAD data off to our Rendering Consultant (the guy does amazing work www.3D-city.com) and he would construct the model from scratch and render it. However this time I was ablr to export my Revit Building model to a 3D Studio format which he then brough into his rendering package. I belive he uses something called lightscape or lightwave. Anyway, seeing how most of the work was already done for him, he was able to turn around the finished product in 2 days instead of 2 weeks. Attached is a copy of the finished rendering

I had to lower the resolution to get the file size under the 2MB limit.

Very nice indeed! I sure wouldn't be as willing to show everyone my first project. And good for you for using more than just Revit to get your finished product. Not that Revit can't do everything, but I think one of the best things about it is how easily it can be integrated into other softwares. It's compatability is evident in the time difference you mentioned. Congrats on a great first!

Thanks for the kind words. I actually used a host of different applications (Revit, AutoCAD, Mcolor & Lightscape by my Rendering consultant) to get my finished presentation package. Everything worked pretty seamlessly, but my eventual goal is to do most of the work all in Revit. With every subsequent project I hope to be able to do more and more myself in Revit alone. Attached is a 2D version of one of the elevations that I rendered using Mcolor. The main gold of this elevation was to give my renderer an idea of what we were looking for in his final product. I exported one of my elevationd from Revit to AutoCAD, and then did the 2D rendering in Mcolor. I also used Mcolor to render a 2D site plan that was done in AutoCAD.

FYI - I am not sure hos this attached image will look. All I can say is that if you zoom into the orginal at 100% it looks great.
