REVIT Animated Shadow Study CADclip

Thanks to for posting this CADclip on their site.
Do you need a shadow study done ? Please get in touch. Shadow Study Info
Below are two CADclips demonstrating REVIT's new Shadow Study features.
And Guess what..........it's fast and it's really easy !
The first CADclip is the finished product and the second CADclip explains how to setup and create the Shadow Study. Shadow Studies provide an accurate animated 3 dimensional depiction of the Sun's effect on a set of objects in the real world. You can set the time, date, place and duration of the Shadow Study.
1. First we setup our true north / project north. (bonus lesson) 2. Then we pick a location (Melbourne AU, becasue I like Aussies). 3. Then we set a date in time and ask for a Sunrise to Sunset animation. That's it you're DONE ! 4. Lastly we export the animation to an AVI file.
Click a link below to play the video or right click and 'Save Target As..' to download. Here's the animation I made. (30 sec) (note the date and time) Melbourne Australia Shadow Study Here's how to do it. (13 min.) REVIT 9 Shadow Study

A message to the Google humans and the Google Robots > Unlock my blog !

I have started to post Videos on You Tube. Search for 'CADclip'.

Every Monday I send the same stupid reply message to Google after they send me the same stupid automated apology on behalf of the Google Robots for locking down my blog. It's been 9 weeks since REVIT ROCKS has been locked down wothout warning.

I will get back into blogging as I own www.revitrocks.com anyway but with a different 'non-free' provider that is FOR SURE.

In the mean time if anyone is reading this I have started to post Videos on You Tube. Search for 'CADclip'.

Google Blogger sucks !

Hi Daryl,

This was a great tutorial for Shadow Studies on Revit. Thanks so much for this.

Do you have a website for more Revit tutorials, in particular modelling terrains and massings studies?

Many Thanks
