    How does your structural engineering firm stand out? Structural engineering firms must also promote and market themselves as specialists and leaders in Building Information Modeling (BIM). Today we work, collaborate, and compete in the visual arena. Appealing renderings are not restricted to just the architect’s bag of tricks; you can use structural renderings for websites, cover sheets, proposals, and magazine articles. Structure is the beautiful yet rarely seen building bones of every project, and it will be the highlight of this rendering lab. In this lab we will discuss tips and tricks of Revit Structure software modeling for rendering purposes. We will import a Revit Structure model and quickly create materials, lighting, and structurally prominent renderings with 3ds Max software. A picture is worth a thousand words and this class is about using the collaborative visual power of 3ds Max software rendering to illustrate our expertise and become highly BIM visible in today’s competitive structural engineering atmosphere.
