Autodesk has announced the launch of Autodesk LIVE, a service where Revit users can turn designs into interactive 3D models.

The company compares LIVE to a first-person video game, where users can adjust navigation points, render styles, and even the time of day, with fluid and quick controls.

AEC professionals can use LIVE to prepare models for real-time exploration, integrate environmental terrains, and convert rich photorealistic content (RPC) to make renderings more realistic. It also realistically depicts how BIM objects behave. 

Designs can be uploaded to the cloud and shared on Windows and iOS devices.

LIVE is available to subscribers of Revit for an additional $30 a month. Other recent innovations from Autodesk include Stingray, a 3D game engine that LIVE makes use of, and 3ds Max.

Autodesk LIVE keeps BIM data from Autodesk Revit models. All of the images in this collection show BIM data.
