Live Updates and View Synchronization

Introduction to Live Updates

When making changes to your materials, lights, objects, etc. in your main CAD software, these adjustments are instantly recognized and automatically translated into Enscape. This functionality can also be deactivated if required.

Live Updates are also available while our VR mode is activated. This allows you to make adjustments to your project and the person which is wearing the VR headset will be able to see these changes in real time.

Further, Live Updates are always activated by default. If you want to deactivate it, please follow the corresponding instruction for each software below.

Live Updates in Revit

You can deactivate Live Updates by just clicking “Pause Live Updates” in the Enscape ribbon:

If required, click the button again to resume Live Updates:

As long as Live Updates are enabled, you have the ability to choose between different Views:

Each view saves the corresponding Revit attributes:

  • General perspective and location
  • Hide in View – Hidden elements in your project
  • Sun Settings – The Sun Settings (like time of day) defined through Revit
  • Phasing
  • Design options
  • Section boxes

This allows you to, for example, create a whole presentation by just transitioning between your different 3D Views.

Introduction to View Synchronization

View Synchronization allows you to synchronize the native camera of your CAD software with Enscape. Any perspective/movement changes which are executed in SketchUp, Rhino or ArchiCAD will immediately be translated into Enscape.

Generally, if you don’t want to navigate through Enscape directly, this feature can simply be activated instead.

View Synchronization in SketchUp

To synchronize the view of SketchUp with Enscape, simply activate the corresponding functionality by clicking the following button in your ribbon:

In case you haven’t set up your Enscape ribbon (toolbar), you can also click “Synchronize Views” in the Enscape context menu:

This allows you to, for example, switch between different scenes, play an animation, and the view in Enscape will consistently synchronize with the viewport of SketchUp.

View Synchronization in Rhino

To activate the view synchronization in Rhino, simply press the following button:

If you want to disable this feature again, just press the button once more afterwards.
