Enscape releases version 2.9 with Vectorworks 2021 Integration

Enscape 2.9 now supports Vectorworks 2021 integration, allowing design professionals to integrate real-time immersive workflows.


The recent release of Vectorworks 2021 now gets a boost with new Enscape 2.9 integration. Enscape GmbH, a leading provider of real-time rendering and virtual reality technology for the global architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry, has just released version 2.9.

Enscape and Vectorworks

This latest Enscape release supports Vectorworks 2021 from global design and BIM software provider, Vectorworks, Inc. This will allow architects, landscape design professionals, and entertainment designers to add the popular renderer to their Vectorworks-based workflows.

“This partnership confirms our dedication to integrating new technology that brings direct benefits to customers,” said Dave Donley, director of product technology at Vectorworks. “Enscape does a marvelous job with creating nice workflows and developing plug-ins that allow users to add Enscape objects directly into their Vectorworks models. We’re confident users will enjoy the Vectorworks 2021 features now that Enscape fully supports Vectorworks 3D modeling.”

Leveraging GPUs

Enscape is in the new generation of “real-time interactive” renderers. The real-time rendering tool leverages the GPU for rendering adding real-time interactivity to visualization. This transforms Vectorworks BIM models into immersive 3D experiences. Vectorworks users can quickly navigate large BIM models, and changes made in Vectorworks are immediately visible and fully rendered with accurate materials, lighting, and shadows.

Enscape will help Vectorworks-based design professionals to walk through their projects to understand spatial relationships and perform visual inspections that can help them find unseen errors which are natural in pure 2D workflows.

“We’re pleased to partner with Vectorworks to bring Enscape’s real-time 3D rendering and virtual reality technology to Vectorworks users,” said Daniel Monaghan, Enscape’s business leader in the Americas. “Like Vectorworks’ integrated rendering features, Renderworks, Enscape plugs directly into the Vectorworks interface, so 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 instant.”

Enscape for Vectorworks is available on the Windows operating system in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese. Users can try Enscape free for 14 days here.
