Does Revit LT have the framing and material capabilities of Revit Architecture?
I'm looking for some more information than the Matrix provides.
The brochure says that it has "Photorealistic Architectural Rendering Materials". To find out more, I suggest to download the trial and explore it.
That kind of is my issue at the moment.
The learning curve for 30 days and being able to explore its possibilities seems a bit overwhelming.
Does it have the ability to do takeoffs as Revit Architecture does? Or is that part of the price break?
The Top Reasons brouchure indicates that this is possible.
I can quickly find out with the Trial but a third party answer would help without having to use precious Trial time.
Thanks for the additional info.
Are you all using Revit and do you like it?
Did you come from an AutoCAD background (I think so) or start with Revit?
Now I am understanding better. I did not understand your comment about the 30 day learning curve, if it was just to see some features. Are you thinking of approaching Revit LT as your first approach into Revit in general?
Revit LT can do basic structural framing, but it can't do beam systems, which are a rapid way to layout a lot of structure at one time.
Materials are supported and you can do material takeoff schedules. Renderings showing the materials of element is not possible except via cloud rendering tools.
Yes. I am a residential CAD drafter that has been using LT since inception.
A builder that I work with hit me today with being able to have 3D capabilities and BIM.
Without having to go for the full blown Revit, Chief Architect, Softplan route I am hoping the Revit LT can get me there.
And I would like to stay in the Autodesk family. This community is second to none.
The cloud rendering option is photo realistic correct?
Basic rendering of generic siding, brick, shingle, etc. can be done with Revit LT within the program?
