What is also great about Lumion that user-wannabes don’t have to learn anything to get started.

How it works

Models can be imported from Revit, Sketchup and many other CAD packages and different materials such as trees, people, cars, weather and anything else to express the intention of the design. By selecting several viewpoints in the model people can experience more how the design will feel once it’s built. With all the desired viewpoints in place rendering the model can be done with a single touch of a render button. Lumion can quickly render many images and combine them into 360 panoramas.
