System requirements

Hardware requirements

Enscape’s bottleneck is usually the graphics card (GPU). If your CPU and RAM is sufficient to load your projects in Revit without problems, it will be enough for Enscape. However, the CPU can speed up the loading time. The requirements are the identical for running Enscape with your construction application as a plugin, or running the exported standalone executable.

Graphics card

You need an NVIDIA or AMD graphics chip (OpenGL 4.2 compatible) with a minimum of 2GB memory:

We currently do not support the following hardware:

  • Radeon 6000 mobile GPUs
  • Intel onboard GPUs

Please check that you have the newest driver version installed, which ensures compatibility and performance. Enscape does only use one GPU at a time, so a multi GPU setup is currently not beneficial. We recommend using a modern gaming GPU, since there is no serious performance benefit in using professional GPUs (e.g. NVIDIA Quadro). If you want to use Enscape with virtual reality and large projects, pick the fastest gaming card you can afford to ensure a smooth experience.

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

Software requirements

Windows 7 64 Bit SP1 or higher is required to run Enscape. MacOS is not supported, however it runs on Mac hardware with Windows installed via Bootcamp.
We support:

  • Revit 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019
    • Revit LT is not supported
  • SketchUp Make & Pro 2016, 2017 and 2018
  • Rhino 5.0 64bit and 6.0 WIP

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

Virtual machine / VDI

If you have trouble with the mouse input on your VDI system, please try to activate the “Enable Relative Mouse” option (OptionsEnable Relative Mouse) in your VMware Horizon Client . See this article for a little bit more details. Unfortunately this option is not available in the WebClient.
