Here a solar study for a house, exported from Revit into 3ds Max via FBX. The render was produced using a Sun System and Mental Ray. I mostly haven’t configured anything. I haven’t touched the materials either. The study is produced on site, properly geo-located close to Montréal, in June.
It took less than 2 hours and was considered extremely valuable to agree on the house placement.
- The windowed room to the right gets the sun from dawn to dusk.
- The pic-nic area is located on a side of the gallery where the summer sun sets.
- The kitchen has the gallery around it, is located at the front of the house and gets indirect daylight.
