Event Description

Hello 505 BIMer’s!

Please join us for our,

505 BIM User’s Group July 2014 Monthly Meeting

Thursday July 10th 11:30 at ITT Tech

This month’s feature presentation:

Not Just Pretty Pictures - Rendering Strategies for Revit and 3DS Max


The process of Building Information Modeling (BIM) is more than just adding information to graphical representations.  The promise of BIM is in leveraging that rich information to better inform the design process, manage the construction of the building and communicate our ideas to others.  Communication in particular, relies heavily on our ability to visualize the building and its environment.


This session is intended for users of all levels, so please joins us while we discuss how to take a basic Revit model and develop a rendering strategy using workflows in both Revit, and 3DS Max.  While specific tactics for modeling details, model organization, lighting, and materials will be addressed, our focus will be on understanding the tradeoffs between quality, effort and design intent.  Armed with these strategies, we will be able to incorporate the visualization process into our existing workflows.  Visualization should not just be an added service.  It should be integral to what we do.



Arthur McGoey has been in the field of architecture since 1998. He attended Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation where he received his Master of Architecture. Earlier he received dual degrees from the University of New Mexico with a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering Magna Cum Laude. His work experience includes such diverse areas as educational, airport and telecommunications facilities, commercial offices and multi-family & high-end residential. Arthur's focus is on leveraging computers and information technologies to aid design, both practically and conceptually.

So please come and enjoy some lunch, network and learn about new ways to make your firm more efficient.

As always Lunch will be provided!

Also please forward this email to others you think would love to learn about BIM!

See you all there!
