Google Maps image in 3D view

Hello all,

 

I would like to create a more realistic 3D view placing my building in the 'real position'.

Is it possible to import a Google maps image in order to use it in the 3D?

 

 

Thnak you in advance!

-One method is to create a Decal, and then assign the Google Map image to it. Place the Decal on a horizontal plane/surface in the model. Note that you will need to scale the image carefully. Image quality may also depend on the map resolution.

-Decals only appear in Realistic and rendered views.

-Another method is to import the Revit model into Google Earth Pro.

- One more method: If you have Navisworks, it has a Google Earth add-in. Export your Revit model to .nwc, then bring into NW and use the Google Earth add-in.

@Viveka_CD , 

 

 

I have an Autodesk subscription account but in 'All products and Services" tab I cannot fine the Globe Link Add-in for Autodesk Revit 2018 in order to download it.

 

 

https://knowledge.autodesk.com/customer-service/account-management/users-software/access-software-se... For example I cannot find all of these options that are described in the video. 

 

 

Thank you in advance!

@Viveka_CD , 

 

Is the Globe link Add-in available for Revit 2018? 

 

I cannot find it in the list with the available subscription-add in for Revit 2018. ( http://help.autodesk.com/view/RVT/2018/ENU/?guid=GUID-B51E757E-CEC1-48D8-B188-BF20EE19FC99 )

 

 

Is there any similar subscription-add in ?

Hi @mairh_tsek

 

This may be a user profile or subscription issue. Can you repost on the installation and licensing forum for further feedback?
