The Art of Visualization in the
BIM Environment

How to Make a Model Come to Life!

Visualizing an architectural project as if it were built has many benefits such as providing the client with a glimpse into the future, a method for reviewing design objectives and concepts, and as a communication tool for the contractor and consultants. Making a visualization really come to life is a true art form.  

In this class you will learn the art of visualizing a project as well as how materials and light can simulate the built environment. Daniel Hruby of Visualize It Built, an experienced visualization professional, will discuss strategies for creating renderings that simulate reality starting with BIM models from ArchiCAD, Revit and DWG's from AutoCAD. He will discuss and demonstrate workflows using Luxology's modo 601 to produce a variety of photorealistic renderings and animations that can be used to visualize interior spaces, architecture and industrial design.
