Hello,

I've just started with revit and have following problem :

For a customer i need to make an showroom for motorcycles. For time reason i would to like to present the file in a color , but not rendered. (something like just taking an screenshot from sketchup)

Now i cannot find any "vespa - motorcycle" for revit so i've imported one from sketchup (plenty to choose from)

The only thing now is that the model is divided in several lines... (polygons) so is there a way to show only the contour of the model ? i know you can draw the top view in the family, but this does not help me when I  make a section view...

I also would like to present some pictures on the wall, but if i import the jpg i can not see anything...

You cannot compair it with skecthup, but i like the way skecthup works with the materials, you can make an screenshot and the materials are visible... ideal for fast working without the need to render.. so can anyone tell me if this is possible please ?

thx

"For time reason i would to like to present the file in a color , but not rendered." - Did you try in a 3D view with "Ray-trace" mode?

 

"The only thing now is that the model is divided in several lines... (polygons) so is there a way to show only the contour of the model ?" - That's the problem of CAD/SK files, edit that file and use the "Symbolic Lines" tool to create that contour....

 

"I also would like to present some pictures on the wall, but if i import the jpg i can not see anything.." - Createa "DECAL" for that.

 

 

"You cannot compair it with skecthup, but i like the way skecthup works with the materials, you can make an screenshot and the materials are visible." - No, you can't compare these two softwares, Revit is a BIM software and sketchup isn't, so, they aren't comparable but change the Visual style in the view you want to "Realistic" and you will see the naterials in that view without rendering.
