Enscape, one of the leaders in real-time, interactive rendering software for the AEC industry, has announced its first available solution for the Mac platform—Enscape for Mac for SketchUp 2021, Open Beta.
Free Open Beta
Available as a free open beta, this first release allows Mac users in AEC to tap the powers and ease of use of Enscape when integrated with Trimble’s SketchUp 2021.

- Real-time visualization – visualize models in real-time in the Enscape rendering window.
- Real-time walkthrough – navigate rendered projects with the walk, fly, and perspective modes.
- Export options – export and share design ideas with still render, panorama, and web standalone options.
- Visual Settings – use a range of atmosphere, image, capture, and rendering settings to create the perfect look.
- Material Editor – use height maps and adjust textures to increase the level of realism.
