Autodesk LIVE is a new interactive visualization service which offers Revit users in the architecture, engineering and construction industries (AEC) the ability to transform their designs into fully-interactive 3D models.
Autodesk LIVE draws viewers into the story of an architectural design much like a video game. With one click in Revit, Autodesk LIVE seamlessly and invisibly converts a project visualization into an interactive model in the cloud. Architects, engineers and construction professionals may customize and more easily share the experience with clients to explore on their own, enhancing communication of a digital design before a project ever breaks ground.

With Autodesk LIVE, architects, engineering and construction design professionals can:
- Prepare Autodesk Revit models for real-time exploration in just a few minutes;
- Integrate Revit models with an environment terrain template to more quickly add scale and context around any building.
- Convert rich photorealistic content (RPC), people models and vegetation models to real-time 3D models so the world looks alive.
- Understand better how BIM objects should behave, as BIM data is brought over to the Autodesk LIVE environment. For example, LIVE knows a door is a door, and as such it will open and close as the user moves to and through the door. Another example includes the ability to show the time of day and year, which may be adjusted at any point to see representative sun and shadow patterns.
It’s possible to shape an audience’s experience by customizing the navigation points, the render style, and even the time of day. When the interactive visualization is finalized, the free Autodesk LIVE viewer lets users share on select Windows and iOS devices.
