Lighting design workflows have traditionally involved 2D drafting software, 3D calculation software, and word processing software for schedules. But where do these tools fit in the 3D BIM world? Lighting designers and lighting professionals can leverage complex architectural Revit models to stop duplicating modeling time and start realizing efficiencies in background management, fixture counts, budgeting, and more. In this discussion, we discuss how our lighting design firm has gone from Revit viewers to Revit modelers. We’ll dive deep into case studies of real world applications showcasing some of the key concepts that made our most useful lighting families, the power and limitations of the ElumTools plugin from Lighting Analyst, as well as some tips and tricks we wish we knew before starting the process.
