About this app
The glTF Exporter + API is a powerful plugin that allows Autodesk Revit users to effortlessly export their projects as 3D models in the glTF format. With just a single click, users can obtain a 3D representation of their Revit project, enabling seamless integration with a wide range of applications that support the glTF 3D format. This plugin not only simplifies the export process but also offers a multitude of customization options to ensure the best visual assets support and precise geometry handling.
Effortless Export with Customization Options
The glTF Exporter + API plugin streamlines the process of exporting a Revit project as a glTF file. Users can choose between two export formats, gltf and packed glb, depending on their specific requirements. Furthermore, the plugin allows users to select the level of detail for the geometry, enabling them to balance file size and visual fidelity.
One of the standout features of this plugin is the ability to bake meshes either by element or by material. This provides users with granular control over how their project is exported, ensuring that each element or material is accurately represented in the resulting 3D model. Additionally, users can choose to export materials, lights, or specify custom methods to write element metadata into the glTF extras.
Seamless Integration with API
For advanced users and add-in developers, the glTF Exporter + API offers an included API that opens up a world of customization possibilities. With the API, developers can automate the exporting process, upgrade existing plugins to support glTF, and access even more settings.
Through the API, developers can set ignored categories, choose whether to index geometry or not, and skip normals to reduce file size. Additionally, developers can export materials or colors only, select texture size levels, and split binaries by linked projects. The API empowers developers to tailor the plugin to their specific needs, making it an invaluable tool for those who work extensively with glTF.
Fast Export and High Visual Fidelity
The glTF Exporter + API excels in both speed and visual fidelity. The plugin ensures fast export times, allowing users to quickly obtain a 3D model of their Revit project. Furthermore, the plugin's precise geometry handling guarantees that the exported model accurately represents the original design.
With excellent visual assets support, the glTF Exporter + API enables users to showcase their Revit models in the most beautiful way possible. The resulting output files include textures for materials, glTF version 2.0 JSON, and binary files, ensuring a comprehensive representation of the project.
The glTF Exporter + API is an essential plugin for Autodesk Revit users looking to export their projects in the easily consumable and visually appealing glTF format. Its seamless integration, customization options, and efficient export process make it an invaluable tool for both casual users and add-in developers. Whether you are showcasing your designs or integrating with applications that support glTF, this plugin provides a reliable and user-friendly solution. So why wait? Give the glTF Exporter + API a try and experience the power of effortless 3D model export from Revit.
