Rendering In The Cloud With AutoCAD and Revit

render-in-the-cloudAmong the many benefits of Autodesk 360 is the ability to render in the cloud.

If you’re a subscription customer with access to AutoCAD or Revit (2013 or later) you can utilise the power of cloud based rendering straight away.

The first thing you’ll need to do is register for your free Autodesk 360 account, if you haven’t done so already, and then sign in via Revit or AutoCAD.

When you have your project ready, it’s simply a case of going to the view tab and selecting render in the cloud.

That launches the Autodesk 360 interface which guides you through all the options available, such as 3D view, output type, render quality, exposure, image size and file format.

You might find yourself skimping in terms of quality when rendering from your own workstation but lest we forget this isn’t on your computer, so I’d personally optimise your preferences to get the best results.

(It’s not vital, I’m just saying)

By accessing the cloud to do your rendering it frees you and your computer up to carry on with other important design tasks.

The biggest plus when rendering in the cloud is the speed alone. What would traditionally take an hour in Revit takes five minutes in the cloud.

When the renders are complete, you’ll receive an email notification and the images will appear in your personal Autodesk 360 render gallery.

The render gallery can be accessed from any browser at any time, once your renders are online you can change the majority of settings and render a new version of previous renderings with advanced quality or different backgrounds.

Cloud based rendering also gives you the option to render a panoramic 360 image meaning you can see a full 360 degree view and increase audience interaction.

The main benefit of rendering in the cloud is its accessibility.

You can use high quality photorealistic images within your presentations almost instantly.

It gives you and your client the ability to work more intrinsically and get the design they want.

And of course for those renderings that require the highest quality you can always use 3ds Max, running on a standalone workstation.

This can be relatively cost effective but remember the key is in the power of the processors.
