Revit Technology Conference - Redux

The Revit Technology Conference (RTC) held its inaugural event in North America at the Hyatt Huntington Beach, California on June 23 - 25, 2011.

Z Corporation was represented by one of its authorized channel partners in Southern California, 3D Rapid Prototyping, Inc. (3DRP). 3DRP, a sponsor for RTC, brought their ZPrinter 450 demo system and interacted with the Revit users throughout the 3-day event.

“Bill Craig and his team from 3D Rapid Prototyping were terrific!” said Phil Read, the lead organizer for RTC North America. “3DRP took the time to explain 3D printing technology to the Revit users, whether or not there was a sales opportunity – their collective knowledge of the ZPrinter technology for AEC applications was impressive.”

At the show, 3DRP printed some Revit models from files that random attendees had given them.

The image below shows a ZPrint of a home designed in Revit:

The elephant and cow below were designed in Revit to show that it is possible to do complex shapes. The designer was Marcello Sgambelluri of John Martin Assoc.

Many thanks to our friends at 3DRP for sponsoring the RTC event and educating the Revit users about ZPrinting.

  1. Very impressive 3D print out. How much will it cost to print out the home designed in Revit above?

  2. The materials cost for this home is approx $40 USD assuming the user owns their own ZPrinter.
