Our project “Enray” is an architectural real-time visualization plugin for Autodesk Revit. With our product, engineer can easy get and explore his building information model(BIM) rendering by one click in a moment without any additional work. The plugin automatically grabs model’s geometry and parametric materials data and uses it for visualization. Moreover, we implemented a data background synchronization between Revit and our plugin - so called LiveLink. So after any changes in a source BIM model in Revit it almost immediately occurs in Enray.
Our key features are:
- Built with Unreal Engine 4;
- LiveLink support;
- Revit parametric materials support;
- Dynamic environment including sky, tree, grass generation;
- Simulation of the day;
Technically, we use UE4 a little bit unusual way. The render scene is fully dynamic including geometry, materials, lights and sky. The whole project is pure C++ including UI. It was so much pain from the beginning with Slate UI - but now i love it:)
We are a small team of two people: me and my wife.
