Getting started with Revit in SENTIO VR

Step-by-step tutorial to view Revit models in Quest 2 VR App

This tutorial will show how you can convert your Revit models into VR walkthroughs on Quest 2.

A few important points:

  • Models are uploaded to the cloud via a plug-in directly from Revit
  • The upload process usually takes 3-15 minutes depending on model's complexity
  • You will see a success screen once models are uploaded and receive an email
  • Download the SENTIO VR app on the Quest 2 and note your 6-digit code for the VR walkthrough


Compatible with Revit ( 2018 - 2023 )

Revit LT is not compatible as it does not allow exporting models via 3rd party plugins

Open Revit & login to SENTIO VR plugin to upload model

You will need a SENTIO VR account to use the plugin. If you haven't signed up yet, please do so using this link. If you have already created an account, log in using your credentials

Select 3D views and project before uploading the model

The plugin exports the entire model geometry, materials & textures to the cloud for the VR experience. By selecting 3D views here, you will still export the entire model but will also be able to access these views easily from the VR menu for a smoother presentation experience. We recommend you select the relevant views.

Now, select the project where you want the model to be saved after uploading to keep your content organized.

Wait for the upload process to complete

Wait for a few minutes till you see the Success screen at the end of the process. It usually takes 3-15 minutes to upload models depending on its complexity & upload speed.

Note your 6 digit code for VR walkthrough

Once you see the Success screen at the end of the process, all you need is to enter your unique 6 digit code to view your model in VR. To note the 6 digit code for your account, click on this icon in the plugin.

View your model in VR in Dollhouse View

You can now enter your 6 digit code in the SENTIO VR Quest 2 App & walkthrough your model in 1:1 scale with all the geometry, materials & textures imported correctly. Below is a screenshot of how models are presented in a Dollhouse view before exploring in detail.
