I have never heard of artlantis before so I did a search for it. Some of the renderings in the gallery on Artlantis' web site are pretty amazing, but most are pretty typical mid-level renderings. I have seen some real good renderings come out of Revit. It mostly depends on how much time you want to put into learning how to render in a new program. Anywho, I would say it is comparable. If you really like Artlantis, I bet there's a way to export the revit model and put it into your program of choice. Is that what you are looking for? Can Artlantis import a dwg or 3ds like most rendering programs? Post edited on 2006-07-27 22:18:03

At work I have 10 CD plates with Artlantis texture. They work good as materials/textures in Revit. I have used those plates alot when I setup the texture in revit. I know Archicad use Artlantis render.

Hello, We are a big architecture agency in Belgium, and we have now migrated to Revit. In the past, we used an other software for the 3D models, and artlantis for the rendering. Artlantis is a fantastic software ! The quality of the rendering is meaby a bit lower than the one you will get with 3D max, but i can assure that, when you start to use artlantis, after two or three hours of training, you are ready to use it ! It is so simple you can't believe it ! Really ! So when we started to use revit, i was decided to use artlantis for the rendering. It works at 99 % ! All the families you create in Revit are splitted in different layers in the dwg, and then in the artlantis file : no problem : you just have to split all the different materials you want to have in artlantis in different subcategories in you families. It works perfectly well. Unfortunately, there is still ONE SMALL problem i can't solve : if you create a wall, and you decide to split the exterior part of the wall in two different materials in revit, by dividing the exterior function in the definition of the wall, you cannot get this information in your export except for 3D max. When you export your dwg, revit creates the file, with a second one with pcp extension. If you open this file in max or viz, it will be perfect. But in an other software as artlantis, the pcp file cannot be read with the dwg, and the exterior wall will be created with only one material !!! Stupid ! The only way to avoid this would be to be able to create subcategories for materials, but i think this is impossible ! So if anybody has an idea, be welcome ! Dho
