I am excited to announce that our partnership with ArtVPS, the makers of the Shaderlight rendering software for Google SketchUp, will be officially launching at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2012 convention in Washington, DC from May 17-19. If you are going to be in attendance, please come visit us at Booth 1908 (next to Google SketchUp) to see our newest innovation in cloud-based rendering. Continue reading →
Pricing for Revit Architecture 2011-2013 cloud rendering. The final price is based on image size and the number of lights. Every 25 lights increases the price by 1X for the corresponding image size.
We are revising our pricing for our CloudRender ™ service for Autodesk Revit Architecture so you can both predict a price and adjust your image to lower the price. The pricing remains upfront as always after you preview your scene but now is even easier because it is based on two factors: 1) the size of your rendered image and 2) the number of lights. The chart above gives an overview of the pricing for our high priority system that utilizes high performance computers on the cloud to render scenes. If you have a longer time frame, you can choose low priority at checkout and pay a lower price. Our CloudRender add-in is also compatible with Revit 2011 & 2012. Not familiar with CloudRender? Using the mental ray rendering engine, CloudRender offers upfront pricing, unlimited simultaneous renders, and custom material and RPC/entourage support. Need a walkthrough? Select “walkthrough” from the CloudRender add-in to receive a quote and we can deliver most walkthroughs and animations within 24 hours.
Our SightSpace 3D mobile app viewer for Google SketchUp (in .KMZ format) is now available on Amazon’s Kindle Fire and can be downloaded on the Amazon Appstore for Android. SightSpace 3D is a powerful tool to view models created in Google SketchUp and other programs that read .KMZ files. These include Google Earth, the Google 3D Warehouse, ArchiCAD, and ArcGIS. With SightSpace, you can annotate 3D models, bookmark favorite views, take screenshots, and share notes and photos. If you have a pair of red/cyan glasses, you can also view models in full Stereoscopic 3D. SightSpace 3D is also available for download on the iTunes App Store for Apple devices and for Android phones and tablets on Google Play (formerly the Android Market).
