We are working on new version of Revit Collada exporter.

Here are the links if you want to try the beta version:

Revit 2012:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2084922/Revit2012ColladaExporter_2.00b4.exe

Revit 2013:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2084922/Revit2013ColladaExporter_2.00b4.exe

Changes:
  • Smart materials system (Not all materials are available in the Revit API but even if the exporter can't read a material it tries to divide the scene based on category, group etc. So you can easily assign materials in Lumion)
  • Custom materials support
  • Collecting textures in "textures" folder (So you can use a DAE file on another PC)
  • Linked files materials support
  • Bug in nested linked files fixed
  • Artefacts objects bug fixed
  • Progress bar added
  • Speed improved

Hi Guys,

Here you can find the difference beetween revit and lumion.

First Question why Lumon doesn't recognize the square of wood in the middle of the wall??

Second: How  Lumion does to recognize some matérials and It can't recognize others materials...

We would like to know which kind of revit materials Lumion supports. How can we make the materials in revit in order to be supported in Lumion.

This is a real important thing we should be able to do.

THanks you guys for tour answer

Hi Gaëtan,

Not all materials are available via RevitAPI. We are doing our best, but it is sometimes impossible (take a look in build-in FBX exporter).
Anyway improving materials export is now our main goal, and I hope it will be better and better.

BTW: Creating small list of advices how to make materials in Revit for Lumion is great idea.
Thank you.
