Architectural rendering: transform your models into realistic visualizations

Architectural rendering, also known as architectural visualization, is a process that involves creating 2D and 3D images and animations that illustrate proposed architectural designs. It can create stunning and realistic visualizations that help showcase projects.

Mostly used by architects and designers, 3D rendering for architecture demonstrates how a building will look like before it’s built. It helps the architect communicate the design to clients, customers, and colleagues.

With Enscape’s real-time technology, you can visualize your project as a fully rendered 3D walkthrough that can be navigated and explored from every angle.

Real-time architectural visualization with just one click

What was once a time-consuming process reserved for specialists, the introduction of real-time rendering software has made architectural visualization accessible for architects and designers.

Enscape is the best tool for real-time architectural visualization and ideal for any design workflow. It is a real-time 3D architectural rendering software that empowers the user to tap into their creativity and explore design possibilities. With just one click, you can instantly transform your model into a 3D building and landscape rendering.

Compatible with Revit, SketchUp, Rhino, ArchiCAD, and Vectorworks, Enscape allows users to work directly from their architecture projects. Our rendering software features include:

  • Still renderings
  • 3D walkthrough
  • Animation
  • Live virtual reality
  • Floor plans and cross-sections
  • Photorealistic 3D renderings
  • Real-time 3D renderings
  • Panoramic renderings

Enscape is an easy tool to use. No special training is needed and information is available via video tutorials and the Knowledge Base to help users get the best out of their real-time rendering experience.

Visualizing architecture like never before

A staggering 98% of Enscape customers find that using real-time rendering helps them to communicate their ideas. An architecture rendering significantly reduces the risk of misunderstanding, since it enables everyone to view a building or space from the same perspective.

Take a look at this short video to see how Enscape is transforming architectural visualization, making it accessible to all, including your clients, contractors, and stakeholders.

Use of real-time rendering software

Thanks to real-time rendering software, architectural rendering has become a tool for daily workflows. No longer a slow and expensive process, it has become much more accessible with speedier rendering times and ease of use. Here are some of the reasons why it is the perfect companion for your design workflow:

Validate your ideas

Architectural rendering is the language between designer and client. It helps architects and designers communicate their objectives of the design.

Implementing Enscape to your design workflow gives you more time to create, innovate, and explore design ideas.

Shorten the trial and feedback loop

Using real-time 3D rendering software can help eliminate possible design errors. Visualizing a design before it’s built gives an overview of the space, which can highlight the best part of the designs as well as any flaws.

Impress your clients

Architectural visualization gives you an edge with your clients. With Enscape, you can expect high-quality, realistic-looking 3D renders in a real-time manner. Simultaneous editing and visualization mean any changes can be made on the fly.

Architectural visualization and virtual reality

With Enscape, on top of beautiful images, you can also showcase your designs via virtual reality. Architectural visualization through virtual reality allows you to enhance your design and can add more value for clients. Architectural VR is not only great for client presentations, but also internal presentations, and internal design reviews.

A VR architectural presentation offers a full 360 view, allowing you to create immersive experiences. You can get a feeling of the full scale of the project, and fully engage with the space and design.

Now a more feasible option, thanks to the reduced costs of headsets such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or Microsoft Mixed Reality, architects and designers can join nine out of the 20 major architectural companies worldwide that use VR in test cases or in their daily business.
