Rendering in Revit – Let Projects Sell Themselves

Humans are visual creatures - so much that we have countless idioms about it: “a picture is worth a thousand words” . . . “seeing is believing” . . . and a hundred more. When it comes to communicating design and finish concepts for your project, nothing beats a 3D rendering with lights, finishes, and textures. Construction plans and flat models are of limited use, particularly to clients that don’t live and breathe in the design world the way we do. Being able to present them with fully developed and finished 3D models of all their options can help them make decisions and understand why they should adopt your designs much more quickly. The great news is you have all the tools you need to create those renderings already in house! Autodesk Revit has a fully-functional rendering engine built into it and all your staff needs is a little instruction on how to use it. ZenTek Consultants is here to help!

This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions of Revit Rendering, and address questions as the class progresses.

Note: Instructor will present using Autodesk Revit 2020. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version.

Must attend all four sessions. Cost is per person.
