Architects must make thousands of design decisions throughout the life of a project, and the best way for them to evaluate the options is to generate realistic images from their 3D building model. With V-Ray for Revit, they can review design options quickly and easily and make informed choices faster.
V-Ray lets architects render professional-quality, high-resolution images directly from their Revit model and helps them make critical design decisions.
Create photorealistic imagery fast with a familiar and easy to use interface
Review and present designs fast with simple VR tools
Special material overrides for diagrammatic renderings
Advanced image post-processing
Material library that includes over 500 materials and works across all V-Ray products
The typical V-Ray for Revit customer is an architect who is looking for a quick way to create hundreds of design renderings throughout the project. And because deadlines are frequent and tight, he or she needs a dependable rendering solution.

Did you know?
SWARM – the elastic distributed rendering engine for V-Ray for Revit, uses the same universal render node licenses that ship with V-Ray for 3DS Max. Adding render node licenses gives you more distributed rendering capabilities in both V-Ray for Revit and V-Ray for 3ds Max.
VRmat editor – V-Ray for Revit ships with a VRmat material editor which is perfect for creating and modifying .vrmats for use in override materials. The VRmat editor allows you to create materials that work across the whole range of V-Ray products including V-Ray for 3DS Max, V-Ray for Rhino, and V-Ray for SketchUp.
