General Usage Instructions

With Lumion LiveSync for Autodesk Revit, you can set up a simultaneous, real-time connection between your 3D model in Revit and Lumion. The LiveSync plugin is free, and installation and usage are refreshingly simple. 

Simply download and install the LiveSync plugin from the Autodesk App Store (instructions below), and go to your Add-ins tab. Click on Lumion LiveSync to open the app. Open a project in Lumion and make sure you are in a 3D view in Revit.  

Click on the Play button to start the live, real-time synchronization. Now, you can change the model’s shape in Revit to test a modified design, and you’ll instantly see the model updated in Lumion with accurate lighting and shadow, surrounding contexts such as urban neighborhoods or rural settings, and beautiful, realistic materials.  

Lumion LiveSync for Revit also includes:

  • Real-time model synchronization between Revit and Lumion
  • Camera synchronization between Revit and Lumion
  • The ability to add and save Lumion’s beautiful materials to your LiveSync project
  • Real-time materials synchronization and visualization
  • Automatic model importing into Lumion (no need to separately import a model)
