In this episode of BIM After Dark live I will be exploring various concepts around working with meshes in Revit. With the release of Revit 2023 came some welcomed improvements to how Revit deals with meshes and I wanted to share some of what I have learned and how to take advantage of the new features.
We will talk about:
– The file types you can import and compare how they look in Revit.
– Dealing with materials (rendered and shaded) when it comes to imports.
– Modifying imported mesh files to make them easier to use in Revit.
So sit back, relax, and let’s geek out!
