Tips

1. Any tutorial or user manual for Revit-D5 users?


Thanks to Karam, our D5 Converter - Revit product manager, we have a detailed tutorial on our Youtube channel to help you get started with this workflow. Check out the video and you'll find everything you need.


To learn more about how D5 works with Revit, see here.



2. Why can't D5 run on my computer? What do I need to run D5 Render smoothly?


Since D5 Render adopts real-time raytracing technology built on DXR of Windows systems, that sets minimum requirements for graphics cards and Windows versions. To install D5 and get up and running, please make sure your graphics card supports raytracing.

For more info, see here.


How D5 performs depends a lot on your graphics card and vram. Normally higher specs bring better performance and results. Many users purchased a better card so as to run D5 on their computer, and from what we were told, it proves to be a worthy investment.


In response to your doubts regarding D5's performance on different specs, we're working on a test tool to collect statisctics from our users. By carrying out a test and analyzing the results with your help, we can hopefully come to a conclusion and publish a benchmark for your reference.
