One of the most popular architectural visualization tools in the AEC/O industry, Enscape is one of the easiest ways to visualize BIM models and CAD data in real-time, with interactivity that aids the design process. Architects and designers use it for daily design reviews, live demos, and client and contractor coordination.

Enscape for Mac features inside of Vectorworks include:

  • Real-Time WalkthroughsNavigate fully-rendered projects with perspective, walk and fly modes using a live link between Enscape and Vectorworks.
  • Render-Ready 3D Assets — Fill scenes with a wide range of accessories, vegetation, people, furniture, and vehicles to bring more realism to a design
  • Material Editing — Adjust material attributes like color, reflectivity, light emission, and height to test ideas or lock in specific looks
  • Visual Variety — Display scenes in a variety of rendering styles or adjust atmosphere settings like illumination and cloud density for clients in the moment
  • Multiple Exports — Share visualizations with design teams and clients as still images, panoramas, web links, and batch renders.

“Enscape takes the expertise out of visualization, so architects can assess the impact of design decisions in record time,” said Petr Mitev, VP Product, Solutions for Designers at Chaos. “With our new Mac integration for Vectorworks, we’re bringing that power to even more people, so designers can enjoy real-time feedback while working directly within the Vectorworks platform.”

Enscape for Mac is available now for Vectorworks 2024 and Vectorworks 2023 SP6. Existing users can download the new versions or improvements for free and subscription plans can be found at the Enscape pricing page. Users can also try Enscape for Mac with a free 14-day trial.
