Architects are always trying to be more efficient and adding more value for clients. But with most software, rendering is very time-consuming, impairing efficiency significantly. It is exhausting for designers when the process of visual processing uses energy that would be better invested in design and architecture itself.
With the Enscape plugin, real-time rendering and virtual reality can help to remedy this situation. The plugin integrates as a toolbar in the popular design platforms Rhino, Revit and SketchUp, with a version for Archicad also currently in development. Because the software is a plugin for these popular programs, architects do not need to learn to use new software, but work in their familiar system with some additional features. And since the software runs on the local graphics card, projects do not have to be uploaded to the cloud.
Optimize Your Workflow
Imagine making a change to your design and almost instantly the fully-rendered view is updated. The advantages are clearly apparent: With real-time rendering in a second window, changes to the project and their effects can be examined immediately. In meetings with colleagues or at the customer’s site, adjustments can be made to the design with no extra time required to create renderings.
Designers around the world have found that these faster iterations massively accelerate their workflow. “Enscape has added significant value to our practice—we are now able to generate renderings, animations, and real-time walkthroughs straight from our Revit models,” states EYRC-designer Enoch Chow. Real-time rendering shows its relevance not only in the early design phase but in all stages of a project.
