Introduction

 

Overview

Revizto suite is comprised of three different parts:

  • Revit, SketchUp, AutoCAD and NavisWorks plugins (optional)
  • Revizto Editor
  • Revizto Viewer

The description of each part is provided in this tutorial.

 

Revit, SketchUp, AutoCAD, and Navisworks plugins

If you are working in Revit, SketchUp, AutoCAD or NavisWorks you will find Revizto plugin in there after the installation. This is needed to export your model to Revizto. If you are working in other programs, you should use Revizto Editor's built-in import instead (to import FBX file of desired model).

 

 

Revizto Editor

Revizto Editor is the main program where you, as an architect or a modeler work. It allows editing materials, lighting, setting visibility of objects, optimizing geometry, sharing the model in different ways, and collaborating. However, not all the changes can be seen in the Editor. That's why it is useful to review how the model looks in Revizto Viewer.

 

Revizto Viewer

Revizto Viewer is a free application that allows anyone explore Revizto models. It is multiplatform, with apps available for Windows PCs, Mac computers, iPads, Android-based tablets and even for web-browsers (the browser version has size limitations and works only on desktop browsers). Viewers can open projects from the cloud or as a file. There are also built-in collaboration tools such as Revizto Issue Tracker, screenshots, ability to record videos, as well as share the Revizto Viewer's camera with other participants.

 

Typical Workflow

When you work in Revizto editor, the typical workflow is as follows:

  1. Get your model into Revizto (using exporters or Editor's built-in import). Fine-tune the model in Revizto Editor if needed.
  2. Check how the model looks in Revizto Viewer (because not all the changes are visible in the Editor).
  3. Share the model via Revizto Editor (through the Cloud, self-executable Viewer file with the scene, or simply Revizto project file).
  4. Optionally - edit the model after getting feedback, re-export it to Revizto if changes were made to the original, and sync changes (or provide the new project to the people with whom you share).

You can see an example of a typical workflow in the "Revizto: Quick Start" section of this tutorial.
