Enscape 3.2 Now available!

By Sofia Jaramillo | News, Visualization

Enscape 3.2 Offers Dynamic Real-Time Visualization and Streamlined Workflows for Architects and Designers.

Enscape’s latest version provides Dynamic Asset Placement, Panorama Enhancements, Green Building Assets and materials. This latest update includes features that help architects and designers worldwide create more vivid real-time visualizations and streamline the entire design workflow.

What’s new?

Dynamic Asset Placement

With the new Dynamic Asset Placement, users can select, place, and edit assets from the Asset Libraries into their designs via the Enscape rendering window. Everything added to the rendering is instantly reflected in the modeling software, offering a two-way asset placement. Users can rotate, scale, and delete an asset, and all changes will sync back to the project. Exact editing functions and capabilities will depend on the modeling software used. Multi-asset placement is also now available to quickly populate scenes with assets such as trees, cars, and people, directly inside Enscape.

Batch Panorama and Panorama Tours

With the new Batch Panorama, users can now render multiple panoramas, such as an image, mono panorama, or stereo panorama, at once. Panorama Tours are also available to guide clients and prospects better through proposed designs – third-party tools are no longer required.

Update Existing Uploads

With the Uploads Update feature, users can update existing uploads shared by a link or QR code without the need to resend a new one each time a change is made, preventing fractured workflows and offering a much more efficient way of working.

Green Building Assets and Materials

With the growing demand and need for sustainable architecture, users can now enjoy a new collection of over 150 green building assets, including a diverse range of trees, plants, and flowers often used within green building design. Wind turbines, electric power stations, two additional electric vehicles, drones, a scooter, and even a passenger drone, have also been added to this update. Users will also get access to roughly 25 green building materials such as organic bricks, a bamboo fence, recycled plastic, a straw wall, hay plastic, solar modules, printed concrete, clay plaster, solar roof tiles, wood materials, and rammed earth.

New Materials and People Assets

Enscape 3.2 also includes around 30 new highly requested materials such as wallpapers, tiles, marble, granite, leather, plaster, and rubber tar. Users can also add approximately 50 new people assets to their scenes.

Ray-Traced Sun Shadows

Shadow sharpness and accuracy are further improved with this release by extending ray-traced sun shadows to videos and real-time walkthroughs (independent of whether rest mode is activated or not).

Upload Management Overhaul

To bring the Upload Management feature in line with the rest of the product and provide users with a more intuitive workflow, the UI for this particular element of Enscape has been redesigned. Uploads will now be grouped by type and product, and function indicators have been improved.

“I like the fact that Enscape is always looking for ways to improve our design workflow,” “The new Dynamic Asset Placement functionality will save both time and effort as we can now place and modify the assets in a way that wasn’t so easy to do with the 3D modeling software,” said Joseph Kim, Project Manager, MJM Architects.

Additional Enscape 3.2 Features

• Geometry update toggle: Revit, Archicad, and Vectorworks users can decide if all geometry should be reloaded when changing a view.
• Vulkan ray tracing for AMD GPUs
• Windows 11 support
• More improvements and fixes
