Architectural rendering for architects

A live presentation is a great way to communicate designs and to emotionally involve customers. Enscape incorporates the future of presenting and demonstrating architectural projects. It was created with architects in mind, who want to focus on their art rather than on technological aspects. With its direct integration into the CAD Software, Enscape is not only the best-looking real time engine but also the fastest renderer on the market. Enscape integrates perfectly into the BIM workflow by using the data from the working model inside Revit. Already today, some of the greatest architects in over 60 countries worldwide love using Enscape for presentations and for quickly creating renderings.

Enscape is a visualization software for architects

Enscape helps architects all over the world to save time in the creation of renderings and presentations. As a Revit plugin, Enscape allows you to seamlessly walk through your 3D BIM design and to turn it into great looking renderings.

Enscape is easy to use and can run on a second screen all the time. The design is updated via the live link between Revit and Enscape. It allows you to improve your design even directly in a client meeting. With an HMD such as the Oculus or, in the future, the HTC Vive, the customers can even get a virtual reality experience of their project.

Top 5 reasons Architects use Enscape

1. Easy creation for architectural rendering

By just clicking on start, the visualization is created directly from the 3D CAD model in Revit. Anyone can create visualizations without the necessity to learn an extra software. Users who can use Revit can directly use Enscape through the direct integration, look and feel of Revit. It only takes 30 seconds to create a rendering out of the CAD model. The only steps necessary are the adjusting of the perspective and pressing the “screenshot” button.

2. It’s fast!


In comparison with other 3D visualization software solutions, Enscape offers you a fast way to create great renderings. After loading, Enscape needs on average 50 images per second, which equals 0.02 seconds to create your realtime 3D visualization.

3. Convincing customers

No matter if the architectural rendering project is in an early and unfinished stage or is near completion, Enscape can be used during the whole project process. With the Papermode™ , exclusively available inEnscape, you get a sketchy view of the design. In early phases when no materials are applied, this mode is great to get a feeling for the design. In later project phases, you can convince customers with a realistic demonstration of what their project will look like. Our customers agree that this really amazes and fascinates their clients. The result are happier customers and less unanswered questions.

4. Quick review

The walkthrough can be used internally for design meetings and quick reviews. Enscape has short loading times and allows for spontaneous meetings and reviews. No preparation is necessary. The possibility to create different views in several places makes the review of your project very time efficient, resulting in less feedback loops.

5. Share

Enscape makes sharing of your project easy. You are able to create a rendering or export the whole project with only one click. The standalone export creates a program that runs on every high performance computer, even if Revit is not installed. It is also possible to get a standalone export that runs in virtual reality.

I’m impressed by the ease of use, and how smoothly it works with Revit to produce quality content. This is a great medium for producing visuals for clients in our design stages without spending a ton of time exporting to 3ds-max, re-texturing, rendering, manipulating, etc. It will certainly help close the gap between our design intents and client’s understandings.

We were immediately impressed with how little time and effort is required to produce real-time design reviews and high-quality renderings. What used to take days now takes minutes. We’re rolling out Enscape to all our global offices.

We have been using Enscape as both a design presentation and decision making tool. It seamlessly integrates into our BIM process with minimal training. Enscape’s immediate feedback to design changes of geometry, material finishes, lighting and acoustics directly from the BIM model is a significant benefit.
