Typical customer

The typical V-Ray for Revit customer is an architect who is looking for a quick way to create hundreds of design renderings throughout the project. And because deadlines are frequent and tight, he needs a dependable rendering solution.

Did you know?

  • SWARM – the elastic distributed rendering engine for V-Ray for Revit, uses the same universal render node licenses that ship with V-Ray for 3DS Max.  Adding render node licenses gives you more distributed rendering capabilities in both V-Ray for Revit and V-Ray for 3ds Max.
  • VRmat editor – V-Ray for Revit ships with a VRmat material editor which is perfect for creating and modifying .vrmats for use in override materials.  The VRmat editor allows you to create materials that work across the whole range of V-Ray products including V-Ray for 3DS Max, V-Ray for Rhino, and V-Ray for SketchUp.
