How to update model geometry and save or load material sets in Lumion 8


Since Lumion 8 has a lot of new functionality there is a general need to understand how to update models in which the geometry has been changed. Another question was how to load and save material sets.

In addition to the above, there is now also the advanced ability to create import Variations Control options of models that may be included in Variations Control Effect in movies. To see how to do this, consult this video blog:

You will use the material sets feature to save your assigned materials into an MTT file and to name it. You can then later apply this material set to a future Lumion project model that may have the same layers structure (or load again onto the same model if need be.) This feature works well for models coming from Revit as Revit has a very static category/layer structure between different projects.
