CloudRender For Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012 Available for Download

CloudRender™ for Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2012 is available for download. The CloudRender add-in enables users to render faster directly from Revit using the power of cloud computing while continuing to model. The add-in is also compatible with Revit Architecture 2011. Users on Revit 2010 and earlier may render scenes through our complete online service, Limitless Rendering. This service also renders both scenes and walkthroughs (and is also compatible with Revit Architecture 2012-2009).

CloudRender Version 1.1 Release: High and Low Priority Pricing

High and Low Priority Pricing

Today we are releasing an update to our CloudRender ™ for Autodesk® Revit® Architecture® 2011, an add-in that off-loads rendering to cloud computers and enables architects to continuing working in Revit. Version 1.1 introduces a new pricing feature: high and low priority pricing. (If you have received quotes from us, this system is familiar to you.) At checkout, you will see these two options.

  • The high priority system is ideal for tight deadlines and utilizes a large amount of computing power to quickly deliver Revit renders.  The price reflects the computing power required. 
  • If you choose the low priority option, your render will run on fewer computers and result in a lower price. Select this option if you have a longer timescale. The low priority system will render your scene faster than a local Revit system but slower than our high priority.

The low and high priority systems are ideal to meet both a wide variety of deadlines and budgets with the added benefit of freeing up local workstations and continuing to model in Revit Architecture. CloudRender™ Version 1.1 can be downloaded here.

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.

We are Presenting! AIA New Technologies | Alliances | Practices: Multi-venue Conference

We are pleased to announce our lead cloud computing specialist, Mr. Jeffrey Franklin, will be presenting on the Benefits and Limits of Cloud Computing to architects at the AIA NTAP Conference: Technology in Project Design, Delivery and Facility Management. Held on November 12 at nine venues across the country and also available over the web, Jeffrey will be presenting a rapid-fire Pecha Kucha presentation of 20 slides of 20 seconds each. His talk will be included in a technology section of the conference focusing on BIM in architecture and the preliminary schedule is available. If you are interested in cloud computing or BIM on the cloud, this conference is for you.
