I find that when i render tube shaped objects they appear segmented This only happens with small objects - refer attached.
This is a 100mm diameter tube.
Is there a setting I can change in Revit for when I render small objects?
I saw this recently on a door knob set, the escutcheon trim was approximately 4" dia, and the view treated it like an approx.16-sided 'lumpy' polygonalal extrusion. (2011)
yes I do have 2011. I couldn't see your attachment top your post.
Will revit be issuing a correction to this problem in the future? It seems that the user should be able to control the 'smoothness scale' depending on whether they are rendering an urban design block plan or a small piece of furniture, or perhaps Revit should do this automatically depending on the camera focal length used?
How would I render a piece of furniture like a timber and steel desk? If it wasn't for the timber I could simply do it at 10x the real scale but with timber the grain would be lost.
I don't know what happened to the image. Not a big deal anyhow.
Revit development is always working on the modeling capabilities of the product. Like I mentioned there were some changes to this behavior in 2011 and it actually doe s adjust as your suggestion to the level of zoom. When it comes to something like this we always have to balance performance with the visual fidelity. Revit is after all an application for designing at the "building" level of objects. It is not optimized for multiple buildings in an urban scale or designing intricate pieces of furniture. Not that you can't use it for these kinds of things, it has just not been optimized for this kind of work so some trade offs should probably be expected
