Workflow | D5 Converter-Revit

D5 Converter-Revit helps you to achieve synchronization between Revit and D5

Supported versions: Revit 2017 to Revit 2021


One-click to launch D5 Render in Revit

  • Import the new models into D5 Render to start real-time rendering
  • When a model file needs to be modified during rendering, start sync to create a connection with the original model or replace it with the new model
  • Import .rvt models into D5 Render by Sync feature without exporting d5a

Model/Material/Scene Sync

  • After the current model has been edited in Revit, quickly sync the new model and materials to D5 Render by the Sync button, while keeping the materials and scene parameters that had been adjusted in D5 Render
  • Sync the scene list in Revit to D5 Render
  • Support excluding categories that do not need to be synchronized

View Sync

  • Keep the view of Revit and D5 Render consistent in the horizontal direction
  • Support one click to turn view sync on or off

Light Sync

  • Revit family light sync
    • Synchronization of light source types (point light, spotlight, strip light, rectangular light), positions, sizes (for rectangular/strip light). Other parameters of light sources are not supported for synchronization and should be configured within D5 Render.

Export d5a files

  • .rvt files can be imported D5 Render by converting to .d5a files through D5 Converter
  • Support excluding categories that do not need to be exported
  • Support exporting family lights and automatically synchronize to D5 light sources
