This is an image that I created to show a client a basic design concept of one area of a development. These photorealistic views are not only brilliant for giving the client an idea of what their ideas will look like once built but also for initial planni

Hi Michael, Tips are quite hard to give out when someone doesn't have a problem! Where do I start... If your trying to produce a photo-realistic view of the exterior of a building, without going into too much detail, the best way is to concentrate on making the design as simple as you can, of course the materials, and the way your rendering the view. I find alot of people are always trying to go into too much detail, with a render like this you just need to worry about the externals of the building. Dont worry about the internals etc... this just wastes time if your only concerned with the outside! Once you have modeled the building up, which once mastered will not take long atall, then everything comes together nice and easy. The main tip is like I say, not to go into too much detail at first, you can always add! Setting up materials is also a major role with producing a photo-realistic render. This i'm looking at putting into a tutorial as I have been requested quite alot, so keep your eye out. For someone whos just starting out in revit I would work your way through the tutorials that come with the program to get a grip with how to model within revit, there is alot you can do! I'd also consider getting your hands on an autodesk approved handbook for revit, these are always helpful for tips and tricks! If you need any advice on anything specific within revit then give me a shout and I'd be happy yo help.
Christopher - Cheers for the thought, I'll look into it and let you know.
