Revit Compatability

Seamlessly Interface with Revit

Customize Your Model in Revit!

Many ways to model: Work with the entire building model or trim to individual floors or spaces.

Efficiently Work with Families: Dynamically choose and send families to LightStanza.

Adaptable Illuminance Grids: Define illuminance grids in Revit and adapt them in LightStanza -- with the ability to create and adapt additional new grids within the app.

Import Intelligent Revit Geometries

No more tedious exporting of plans: Holistically work on multi-story buildings with automatic generation of 2D lighting plan views from 3D CAD or BIM models.

No more calculation restraints: Run calculations for the entire building or individual spaces of interest.

Stretch linear fixtures with ease: Prorate fixture length and size in BIM and LightStanza will adjust the IES file accordingly.

Sync Between Revit & LightStanza*

Import BIM with ease: Selectively work with and isolate any fixture, IES files, geometry or families in your Revit model.

Highlight spaces of interest: Analyze the full building with options to trim to individual spaces of interest.

Design in LightStanza or Revit: Maintain the Revit workflow or work in both.*

Use IES default material reflectances: LightStanza can automatically normalize surface reflectances in the architectural model to the IES or custom standards.

Automation of BIM documentation: Reflect the work done in Revit or LightStanza through the update of Revit families and schedules.

*See Electric Light Help Guides for details including limitations of this workflow

Collaborative Calculation Management

Synchronize Design: Send schedules from LightStanza back to Revit.

Shareable Results: Download CAD files, images and spreadsheets of calculation results.

Collaborative Interface: Comment and collaborate all online without having to send files.

"LightStanza helped us analyze complex geometry and compare several different options for artificial lighting in the Oklahoma Capitol Dome. It was a challenging task for us to take on. We were able to use our geometry and light fixtures from Revit to generate an accurate analysis environment, then LightStanza IES adjustment tools helped us fine-tune the lighting. The ability to tweak the IES files and to see those changes in 3D were critical to our process."
