V-Ray 3 for Revit Now Available!

I wrote briefly about V-Ray beta version earlier in the year and a few months later The Revit Kid posted a guest blog on a V-Ray case study by Sam Davis. (A good read if you're interested). 

Well, now it's official, V-Ray 3 for Revit is now available!! This is great news and I look forward to reading and seeing some examples from the rendering pro's out there. I will have to re-acquaint myself with the software before next semester so I can show my students too! 

Wow, Enscape, Maxwell Render, Octane Render and now V-Ray, just to name a few... if you're keen on rendering your Revit models, you're certainly not short on choice these days!!

Revit & Hardware on 'BIM Thoughts'

I get a lot of questions about the best machine to buy for Revit, particularly from students as Revit is arguably the most demanding software package they deal with in the course. 

If you are in the market for a new workstation, have questions about RAM vs CPU or want to geek out on hardware talk, then head over to BIM Thoughts, Episode 52! Bill & Carla talk with BIM Manager, Tom Whitehead about how he picked his new workstations. Some interesting stuff!
