Revit - Desing Options & Phases
I think the Revit version of the plugin should include the upload of all or selected Design Options.
Revit has a specific system to classify and display different design options, but I think the only way to do so right now in Iris is to upload separate models with design options and to go in and out of experiences.
For clients, comparing design options is one of the most important aspects of the design phase. On one of ouu projects, we spent the last 6 months helping a group of people decide which facade will work the best. We've been comparing 4-5 design options on paper for 6 months!
Allowing Iris to simply incorporate these options as a special type of layer we can cycle through in Iris would be fantastic. We want to cycle through these while not going in and out of the VR experiences.
In a similar vein, Revit has phases. We should be able to cycle through phases of the project in Iris.
Please get familiar with phases, their implications (new, existing, demolished, phase filters, etc) and incorporate this into the plugin for Revit.
You need to know how people use Revit to know what tools need to get into IrisVR. These are some of the crucial elements missing, but there are more thing in Revit that should make it to VR (revisions, etc).
Absolutely understand this request and support for design options is our radar and product roadmap!
Our team currently releases a new version update roughly every two months with new tools and improvements, adding utility while maintaining high performance and ease of use. As we support a number of modeling platforms, we strive to provide as uniform an experience as possible with Prospect, regardless of which file format a project comes from.
We greatly value insights from all of our users, and in addition to having a number of former architects on staff, we also have a steady stream of AEC industry professionals by our office for input and user testing to help guide features and development.
Thanks so much for the feedback, I'm adding these details from your message to our development board for my product team.
I strongly agree with this suggestion. Revit design options are an essential process to how we design. Having to exit out of the VR and switch files instead of having the ability to simply toggle back and forth between design options makes using VR for design critiques ineffective.
