Arches not rendering as curves in Lumion
A customer recently contacted us and mentioned that the arches they draw up in Revit and then export to Lumion does not render as smooth curves. It renders as straight segments instead of curves. The screenshots below shows the Revit model and the rendering in Lumion.
On inspection we found that they were using older Revit 2020 software and also an older Lumion 10.3.2. They were also using an older Lumion Bridge to export the information from Revit to Lumion.
Using Revit 2021.1 we draw up a simple wall with some arches cut out of. We used the latest Lumion LiveSync exporter to export the file to a DAE format.
Here is a screenshot of the latest Lumion LiveSync at the time.
In Lumion 10.5 we imported the DAE file and the arches render smooth as you would expect.
The customer was entitled to the Lumion 10.5 upgrade as well as the Revit 2021 software. The Lumion LiveSync is a free app so it all worked out.
What we learn from the above is to try and always keep your software up to date. In the example above we solved the issue by updating all the relevant software.
