G'day bond,


Notice you are from Newcastle, Australia.

Glad to hear you like my work here.


Guess what? This is my 1st job for a client from Europe. He said this is not up to the international standard. He was very angry with me on the quality of work. After that he refused to answer my email. I was disappointed. It took me sometime to discover from the shock.


I wonder to what extend is international standard?

What do the members of the forum think?

Help me as I am new in the Revit community.


How is Revit in Sydney? I am thinking of moving to Sydney to try my skill. I graduated as an Architect from UNSW. Thanks.


Cheers, Kim Wong.

Hi KimI think you're work is great! I can't figure out why the client was so hard on you! I wonder if he/she was expecting something out of a VRay or Maxwell renderer... Which also means, that they should have briefed you on this to begin with.  It's really hard to figure that out since the client has refused to answer. Under any circumstances, that is the most unprofessional behavior. Dont' worry about it Kim. Just keep doing your thing. I wish you good luck!

Rendering looks fine.  Sounds like a typical client that wants to complain about something so they can negotiate a lower fee at the end of the project.


Suggestions, model out the rest of the pool and lower the opacity of the water material.  This is just if you want more detail in the image, and seeing that the pool is a focal point in this view, that's probably something I would end up doing.


keep up the great work!

Hi gautanrs, You got me there! Actually the client wanted the image "yesterday". We wanted to render the scene with 3DS but ran out of time. So we took the risk to render by Revit. Unfortunately it did not up to his international standard. I glad the forum members said it is nice.


Hi rkitect, the pool actually extend to the end. I cropped it here. The problem I encountered is the sun position. With the sun directly overhead the pool turns cyan kind of flat blue. The client was very mad at that as he wanted a topaz blue water effect. The casted shadow and reflection form the surrounding help in the water effect. I also turned on the clouds to get the sky reflection on the pool. Thanks.


Hi Pakos M, Thanks. Hope you can do the same here.
