Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing render styles, part of Navisworks Essential Training.
…Navisworks has come a long way in terms of how realistic your model looks.…It has also come a long way in the actual materials that…are carried over from the authoring applications, such as Revit or AutoCAD.…As we walk through our models, we can make some…choices as to how the buildings or your site actually looks.…This exercise will take a look at the four different render modes a render can be in.…To get started, open the file NavisworksEssential.nwd or…use your own Navisworks file and follow along.…I'm going to click Open, and I'm going to…browse to where I've kept my exercise files.…
I'm going to go to the Navisworks folder, and I'm going to…make sure my files of type are set for navisworks.nwd.…I'm going to click NavisworksEssential and I'm going to click Open.…Go to your Viewpoint tab.…As we can see, we have some render styles over here.…For the mode, click the drop down and see that we're in Full Render.…What this means is that all the materials that were appended to…the model in the authoring program, such as Revit, will show here.…
