Hello,

I began by importing an FBX from Revit 2011.  I have trouble selecting individual objects, a lot of different types of objects seem to be grouped together, i.e. windows + walls.

Also, I am unable to apply materials to some objects.  The object turns blue indicating no material is applied; however, I am unable to bring up the material dialog box.

One more thing.  How do I select an object when it is aligned with another object, e.g. the GUI for one object overlaps the other object's GUI?

The issue with revit is it material system, it uses mentalray materials and it does not works if you export from SketchUp or 3dsmax with standard material.

Untill now all my quest3d clienst using Revit use 3dsmax, to prepare the 3d models correct, this for apply the materials correct and to optimize the 3d models. In the future we can probably improve the workflow so you can get a seamless workflow from revit to lumion.

 

Regarding the object selection, hold down control and then drag a box arround the model, if you had move selected, you can now move all objects at once, or select the individual move icon.

If the object overlap, select the 2 overlapping, and select the Modify Object icon, then use position function, then use on of the functions

That would be great since I had a hard enough time talking my boss into getting Revit.  3DS Max would be a tough sell.  Do Sketchup models import materials?

Yes workflow with Sketchup is flawless by using collada, also from 3ds max with collada its works very well.

For architectural modeling/design/BIM Revit was a very good choice.

But it has some backdraws to get data into other applications besides other autodesk products
