KARLSRUHE, Germany, July 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Enscape, a leading global provider of visualization software for architects, has upgraded its real-time 3D rendering plugin for Autodesk Revit and Trimble SketchUp. As the world's first real-time rendering and virtual reality plugin for the most widely used modeling software, Enscape saves architects hours and days while enabling customers to experience — not just visualize — their architectural projects from every angle and at different times of day. 88 percent of the Top 50 architectural firms have already purchased Enscape.
"Enscape is designed to meet the top demands of today's architect, delivering an extremely fast, effortless, beautiful end product that is inexpensive and directly integrated with Revit and SketchUp," said Thomas Schander, CEO of Enscape. "We are proud that Enscape is being used as a standard application in projects worldwide and at leading firms such as Foster + Partners and Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF). Its accessibility and low cost make it a must-have tool for every architect's arsenal."
In May version 2.0 is being released. With one click, Enscape users simply install the plugin and can walk-through a fully rendered project or export high quality screenshots within seconds. No additional software is required, and direct integration with Revit and SketchUp eliminates uploading data to the cloud. The fully dynamic program reflects all changes in construction in real-time, and the Enscape walk-through can be exported as a stand-alone executable file for easy distribution and customization.
"We are avid users of Enscape in our day-to-day operations," said Stephen Holmes, Manager & Partner of Foster + Partners. "Not only does Enscape seamlessly integrate into our BIM process with minimal training, but its immediate feedback to design challenges of geometry, material finishes, lighting and acoustics directly from the BIM model is a huge benefit."
Architects can now understand the composition of their designs as they are designing, in both standard interface and virtual reality. With Oculus Rift and now HTC VIVE, Enscape users have the ability to explore each Revit and SketchUp project with room-scale virtual reality controllers for easy navigation in just one click.
Enscape is available through subscriptions to provide the most up-to-date version for use. Prices range from $45 (USD) for a monthly fixed-seat license to $679 (UDS) for a yearly floating license. A 14-day free trial is also available.
