LCI’s CloudRender: Render on the Cloud Directly from Revit Architecture 2011

Today I am pleased to announce the release of our newest add-in: CloudRender™ for Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2011. The CloudRender add-in enables users to render faster directly from Revit using the power of cloud computing while continuing to model in Revit. Instead of tying up your local computer, CloudRender off-loads intensive rendering to our high performance systems. There is no loss of quality because Revit scenes render with mental ray® (the same photorealistic rendering engine found in Revit). CloudRender maintains the same camera view, entourage, custom materials and families, lighting, sun, sky, and transparency options (only faster!)

So how does it work?

1. Download and install add-in
2. Select render settings
3. Preview, checkout, and submit to cloud
4. Continue to work in Revit

This is a cloud service. All previews, done quickly on the cloud without tying up Revit, are free and unlimited. Pricing for final renders is upfront and automatically calculated based on the detail of your model and the size of the final image.

LCI Partners With Autodesk

Great news! I am pleased to announce that LCI has been accepted into the Autodesk® Developer Network (ADN). As an Autodesk partner, we will now be developing custom add-ons for Autodesk® Revit® Architecture and other software products.  Our current offering is Limitless Rendering, an online rendering service for Revit Architecture that utilizes high performance computers on the cloud to render faster and free up local workstations. As a member of the ADN, we will expand cloud computing offerings in the AEC industry. Look for a new product release in the upcoming weeks.
