I recently had been asked a couple of questions in relation to Revit LT features and if you can do certain tasks with Revit LT.
Can Revit LT do Rendering?
The answer is that you cannot do on-PC rendering but you can do Cloud Rendering and Revit 2021 has an enhanced Realistic View. This Realistic Mode is actually very good, and I think, good enough for the average user. To explain I captured a screenshot from Revit LT software showing exterior and interior view at the top and then the equivalent Realistic Mode View at the bottom. I have also exported these realistic views to an Image file to show the quality Revit LT can produce.
Can Revit LT do Area calculations?
The answer is yes. I can add Room objects inside the rooms and add these Room areas in a schedule. I then could add them together to get total areas. I can also generate Gross Area plans and schedules.
Can Revit LT do Sun studies?
In the screenshot below I set up the View to show the sun angles per date time and place. Although it is a bit limited you can produce a basic sun study.
I hope by answering these common questions that potential Revit LT users would ask assists these users to make a more informed purchasing decision. If you have more question in this regard or want more information, please contact us at https://www.mgfx.co.za/contact
