Germany’s Enscape GmbH is one of the world’s leading real-time interactive rendering solutions in the AEC industry. Counting 85 percent usage from the world’s top 100 most renowned architecture firms, Enscape continues to add innovative new features and increased performance, and more realism to their popular renderer.
New Enscape 2.9
A big new feature in this release is the new support for the latest version of Vectorworks (v.2021), a leading BIM and CAD tool for architects in Europe with a dominant market position in several German-speaking countries. While those users will appreciate the new support, for everyone else version 2.9 adds plenty of exciting new features.
“Enscape is a must-have for anyone working in 3D,” says award-winning architect and Vectorworks trainer Jonathan Reeves. “Unlike other rendering programs that ‘link’ to Vectorworks, Enscape plugs directly into Vectorworks’ interface, instantly transforming models into immersive real-time 3D experiences. And, because it is not a separate program, it’s very easy to learn and use. If you know how to add a light and texture in Vectorworks, you already know how to use Enscape—the results are just easier, faster, and more impressive.”
A big new feature is support for video textures. This enables movie images to be applied to things like large screens on buildings or on televisions inside intimate homes and conference rooms. (see video below). Also, for a higher level of sharpness, version 2.9 adds displacement maps to Enscape’s Material Editor. Displacement maps add a sense of depth and shadow to textures for stunning realistic results.

Finally, users will find a new collection of fitness assets, including equipment and people exercising. For working offline, these assets and others can now be downloaded and stored locally, providing anytime, anywhere access.
Enscape 2.9 is available for Windows and integrates with the Windows version of Vectorworks 2021. It and its standalone executable (.exe) are available now in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese.
