Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2013 Revit Linking

Video tutorial of the new feature in 3ds Max 2013 and 3ds Max Design 2013 on Revit Linking!

In my opinion this new feature in 3ds Max 2013 could have the potential to change our design and visualization workflow between Revit and 3ds Max, by allowing us the freedom to design in Revit and visualize in 3ds Max without the tedious process of exporting our models from Revit and importing them into 3ds Max and when they changed we had to redo the whole process again. Even if we were very organized it still took us some time to render updates of our designs.

With this new ability to not only import native Revit files but to actually LINK them we can start the visualization process of our design in Revit from the get go and if they change (and we know they will...) it will be a matter of reloading our Revit link model in 3ds Max and render our new design updates!

In the near future I'm going to be posting some additional information and videos on how to start the linking process starting with setting up views, applying and creating custom materials and lighting in our Revit models; and learning how to take full advantage of Revit Linking in 3ds Max 2013, so stayed tuned!
