Blast from the past – Revit circa Summer 2002

Going through an old hard drive today looking for some files I stumbled upon my very first Revit tendering.

This was my first Revit project done in Revit 5.0 in the summer of 2002. I learned Revit over the weekend at home locking myself in my room for two days living off pizza and Chinese food delivery. On the next Monday I started this Revit model and it needed to be rendered and sent to Switzerland for approval of the client by Friday of that same week. Since Revit was still relatively new in those days, there were no books to learn from, only the help menu, an 18 page pamphlet that came with the software and the Zoog Design Revit forums (now part of AUGI).

This rendering was done entirely inside of Revit with no Photoshop other than creating the Swiss flag as a decal for the flagpole. Revit at the time used Accurender and the rendering time was a couple of hours on the best PC we had at the time. Not bad for my very first Revit project and having no rendering experience in any application. Sometimes a deadline and the freedom and trust from the firm that you will get it done leads to some amazing outcomes. Thank you Steve Mueller from Jafvert Mueller Architects in Bloomington, Minn., for the trust and freedom that started me on the path to learning Revit that has led me to Cannon Design.

The modern Revit is capable of so much more. What can you produce with it?
