System Requirements

Operating Systems Supported

  • Windows 7 64 Bit SP1 or higher
  • On MacOS, Windows installed via Bootcamp

Required CAD Software

The Enscape plug-in is provided for the following software:

  • Revit* 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019
  • SketchUp Make & Pro 2016, 2017 and 2018
  • Rhino 5.0 64bit and 6.0
  • ArchiCAD 21 and 22

*Revit LT is not supported

Note: There are conflicts with two other Revit plugins: Colorizer and Techviz. To avoid incompatibilities, please uninstall them before using Enscape.

Minimum Hardware Requirements

Enscape performs its renders using your graphics card (GPU). If your CPU and RAM are capable of handling Revit, for instance, and you have a capable GPU, Enscape should work. A good CPU can speed up Enscape’s loading times. The system requirements to run Enscape, as well as the Standalone files that can be exported from Enscape, are identical.

Graphics Card (GPU)

The minimum requirements we recommend to run Enscape are an OpenGL 4.2 compatible NVIDIA or AMD graphics card with a minimum of 2GB VRAM and the latest available drivers:

  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460/Quadro 2000 and newer
  • AMD Radeon HD 6800 series/FirePro W5000 and newer

Graphics Card developer

For the minimum recommended GPU’s, some performance gains are possible if you experience poor performance.

Recommended Graphics Drivers

Enscape should work if your system runs our recommended drivers:

NVIDIA

AMD

If you run into trouble, let us know by using Enscape’s 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.

Unsupported Hardware

We currently do not support the following hardware:

  • Radeon 6000 mobile GPUs
  • Intel Integrated onboard GPUs

Note: In cases where you have multiple GPU’s, Enscape will only utilize one of those GPU’s. We recommend using a modern gaming GPU, since there is no serious performance benefit in using professional GPU’s (e.g. NVIDIA Quadro).

If you want to use Enscape with virtual reality (VR) please refer to the hardware requirements in our Virtual Reality Headset guide.

The best results for real-time rendering and VR can usually be achieved using the newest available graphics cards such as the AMD Radeon Pro WX-series or Nvidia GeForce GTX 10-series.
