Hello, 

I have used Podium since 2008 (give or take), not on a regular basis, but a feew render from time to time. 

The reason I like podium is because how user friendly it is, very easy to learn by do-do wrong-do again-do right. And you learn a lot by reading this forum. Nice to see it is alive. 

I work most of the time with big projects in Revit, but sometimes I like to escape to the world of SU and Podium to make some concepts for fun. 

Here is an old one from 2015. SU+Podium and just some PP in PS with light and contrast.

Hi Dali, welcome the the forum!

I'm having some trouble viewing these attachments though.  Are the images showing up for you?

Usually it works better to insert the images inline (with the Insert Photo button), instead of using attachments.

I'm not sure if you are aware that you can export your Revit projects to Sketchup, add detail in SU, and render with Podium.
There are a number of plugins for this. This is one I found recently, but I can't vouch for how well it works.

Lumion have a free collada exporter for Revit which works wonderfully, because as I'm sure you know, SU imports collide natively.

We've had a few renders done this way and they look great!

Yes I can see them perfectly on the pc, but it doesn't show on my mobile device. I give it another shot.

Thank you bigstick,

I am aware of that and use it pretty often when I need to try different materials or details.

I usually "clean" the Revit model (or part of the model) from objects I don't need and then export it as a 3D-dwg. Then I clean it again in SU. Works pretty good.

The most important step in SU is to fix the glass parts of windows as they always exports as a solid component/group and that messes things up when applying a glass texture with reflections. 

I don't know what Lumion is, but I will give it a look to see if it is something for me. 

I will post some renders of the exported rvt models I have later today.
