Intro to Lumion
- Preferable: Lumion or Lumion Pro
Lumion is an exciting and powerful visualizing engine capable of taking ordinary Sketchup or Revit files and turning them into a masterpiece. Originally created for architects, Lumion is now used by thousands in architecture, landscape architecture, design and engineering. The power in Lumion is making texturing, assembling and rendering something you can not only do, but actually look forward to.
Join me as we take a closer look at what Lumion is and how it can help your or your firm as I go over the basics of the interface, navigation, placing objects, terrain and how you can download the trial version for yourself, including hardware requirements for this software.

Over the past several years my interest in modeling and rendering engineering data has developed into a passion and even a large part of my career. This field is exciting as new software programs and processes are being developed each year that make for better, faster and cheaper project visualizations. Civil FX is my effort to share with and connect the world to the best of project visualizations from a civil engineering perspective. This includes roads, bridges, sites, foundations, construction and more. I recently left my job to pursue Civil FX full-time.
The software I use includes AutoCAD, Microstation, InfraWorks, Sketchup, 3ds Max, Lumion, Navisworks and other CAD and visualization software.
I am a licensed engineer and Civil FX is the intersection of my education and experience in civil engineering with my passion for video games and special effects.
I am also a husband, father of three and live with my family in Southern Nevada.
