Up and Running with Showcase
Video duration: 0s 1h 35m Beginner


Autodesk Showcase provides designers the ability to explore their work; presenters the tools to discuss their proposals; and clients the chance to explore your designs on their own time, in prebuilt presentation environments. Showcase also integrates beautifully with other Autodesk programs like Revit and Inventor. This course demonstrates each step of creating these presentations within a typical project environment, starting with exporting your model from Revit and ending with finished animations, images, and presentation environments in Showcase. Author Brian Myers also shows how to create alternatives that allow you to explore different aesthetic options with clients and colleagues—without interfering with the underlying beauty of your design.

Topics include:
  • Exporting from Revit to Showcase
  • Selecting and creating environments
  • Lighting environments
  • Developing animations
  • Creating storyboards
  • Applying materials to objects
  • Creating alternatives


- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Brian Myers and welcome to Up and Running with Autodesk Showcase. Showcase transforms 3D CAD models into interactive walkthroughs and presentations. So you can evaluate aesthetic and design alternatives in real time with peers, constituents, and clients. To do this, we'll start by showing you how to leverage the basic features of Showcase which will include exploring the scene environments, and the creation of animations and still shots in the model. Then we'll demonstrate how to use the design alternatives which will allow us to explore material, positional, and visibility options for presenting designs.

We'll also see how to publish our projects to still images, movies, or even to YouTube for your design presentations. We'll be covering all these features plus plenty of other tools and techniques. Now, let's get started with Up and Running with Autodesk Showcase.
