[Answered] Revit Lt to Lumion Trial Textures Missing

I am using Revit Lt 2017 and Lumion Trial 7.5.  When I assign materials in Revit to walls and try to export them into Lumion they either all show up as one wall type or some get added to wall type 2 and some to wall type 1?  Is this because of Revit Lt or Lumion Trial?  I am about to buy the software but I want to make sure this issue will be resolved in the full version before I do.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi kschillaci13, welcome.

Unfortunately, it's an Autodesk limitation in the Revit LT product that prevents us from having a better option to export, such as with the full Revit product.

DWG has been the preferred method if you can define things on further layers and create new layers for overrides,  see Revit and Revit LT: How do I Export a Model?

Other than that there is the option to export to FBX, but then you also need 3DS Max. With 3DS Max you can work by individual surface and re-assign materials before import to Lumion. But it does take a little bit of time to work on all the surfaces (assuming you can get access to 3DS Max).

The only other option is to upgrade to the full Revit product but I'm not sure if that's an option for you or not.

Apologies for the less-than-ideal pipeline for Revit LT but this is where we're at... :-\

Let us know how you get on.
