Does Enscape run with Revit LT?

No. Revit LT does not support plugins, which prohibits the use of Enscape.

What CAD solutions is Enscape compatible with?

At this point, Enscape exlusively supports Autodesk Revit 2015, 2016 and 2017. Support of further CAD applications is currently being developed.

How can I assign and tweak materials to my model?

Enscape directly uses the materials, which you defined in your CAD environment. In order to improve the visual quality, have a look at the tutorials, the manual or the Enscape sample drawings. Generally, there are the following rules of thumb:

  • Choose the right material type (metal, concrete, steel, etc.) to enable the correct simulation model.
  • Adjust the glossiness, so that it resembles the materials reflectivity.
  • Set a color and bump texture to give the surface the appropriate relief and appearance.
How do I get a student license?

Does my license require internet access?

When using a monthly license, you have to connect to the internet once a month. This is necessary, to validate your license status. Once you allow Enscape to connect to the internet, you can use it one month offline, for example on your notebook.

For the yearly license, you have to connect to the internet once a year – after entering the license.

If you have a floating license, you have to be connected to the internet continuously. If the connection cannot be established, you get a watermarked output like in the expired trial version. It might be necessary to add an exception to your firewall for outbound traffic on port 80. If you need further assistance, please contact

How can I transfer my license to another machine?

You can revoke the license in the “About” panel. After doing so, you can re-enter the key on another machine.

Why is my model partially not visible?

If your model is partially hidden, it most propably is related to the active 3D view. Using the Enscape view-dropdown in the main menu you can choose a view that contains the intended objects.

What is the difference to other rendering plugins?

While other rendering plugins involve using an editor and external tools, Enscape™ integrates into your daily work. You do not have to maintain a second project file or learn another software. Just use your project and voilà: There is your interactive walkthrough.

Even if you decide to make changes to your contruction, the materials or anything else: It is saved in your original project file to prevent you from double work and lost time.

How does the floating license work?

Beside the normal fixed-seat license, you can buy a floating license.

A fixed-seat license is limited to be used on one certain machine. In contrast, you can install the floating license on as many machines as you want. After entering the floating license key, Enscape™ needs an internet connection to start. If more Enscape windows are opened than you own floating licenses, Enscape will not open and give you a warning.

If there is no internet connection while you try to open Enscape, Enscape will start a 24 hour timeframe, counted on from the last successful validation. During this timeframe, you will be able to use Enscape as usual. If your computer still has no connection after 24 hours, or if your computer regains internet connection, but all of your seats are currently being used, Enscape will get watermarked.

This allows you to use Enscape on many computers, if you don’t work an all your Revit workstations with Enscape simultaneously.

Do you support Oculus or any other HMD?

You can output the rendered image in stereo for any side-by-side compatible stereo device like your stereo flatscreen.

Beside that, you can enable the Oculus Rift HMD. That currently requires the runtime version 1.3 which can be obtained here:

Does my version always stay up to date?

You get a notification when starting Revit if a new Enscape version is available for download. Therefore, you always have the newest version, independent from when you bought your license.

Boot Camp on Mac does not work for me. Why?

Potentially, because you don’t have an AMD or NVIDIA card installed. Intel is currently not fully supported.

Which graphics driver version do I need?

Enscape should work without a hitch if you are using the certified Revit drivers:

If you are using a different driver version and are experiencing problems, try updating to either the certified driver or try our recommended drivers:

If you’re still running into trouble despite your driver being newer like those listed above, let us know by using the feedback function or send us an email. There are plenty of different system configurations and we are working every day to support more of them.

What are the minimum requirements for Enscape?

You need an NVIDIA or AMD graphics chip (OpenGL 4.2 compatible) with the recommended drivers. Supported products are NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460/Quadro 2000 and newer, as well as AMD Radeon HD 5000 series/FirePro W5000 and newer.

A fast CPU, like Intel i5 or better, is beneficial for the simulation of sound sources. You can reduce the quality of Enscape‘s graphics in settings. That way you can experience a smooth simulation on weaker systems as well.

Windows 7 SP1 or higher is required to run Enscape.

We currently do not support the following hardware:

Radeon 6000 mobile GPUs
