What’s New in Enscape 3.4?

Say hello to Enscape 3.4 and its many feature updates and workflow improvements! With Enscape’s latest version, they have added fine-tuning some of their client’s favorite features to further streamline your workflow and elevate your design experience.

Enscape is a powerful real-time rendering and visualization software that allows architects, engineers, and designers to create stunning 3D visualizations of their projects.

Enscape 3.4 is the latest version of the software, released in 2021. In this article, we will explore some of the new features and improvements in Enscape 3.4.

Explore Enscape 3.4 and benefit from:

Material Editor

One of the major updates in Enscape 3.4 is the new Material Editor. This new feature allows users to create and edit materials directly in the Enscape window, making it much easier to see the changes in real time. With the Material Editor, you can create a wide range of materials, from simple colors and textures to complex, multi-layered materials with reflectivity and transparency.

Custom Asset Library

Another significant improvement in Enscape 3.4 is the ability to create and add custom assets to the Enscape library. This feature allows users to create their own custom objects, textures, and materials and then save them as presets for future use. The Custom Asset Library makes it much easier to create consistent visualizations with a unique style, and it allows users to share their assets with others in their teams.

Improved Lighting and Shadows

Enscape 3.4 also includes several improvements to lighting and shadow rendering. The new version features an improved sun positioning system, which makes it easier to position the sun accurately for a specific location and time of day. Additionally, the new version of Enscape includes improved soft shadows, which create a more realistic and natural lighting effect.

Animated Vegetation

Enscape 3.4 introduces animated vegetation, which adds a new level of realism to visualizations. With this feature, plants and trees can be animated to move in the wind, adding a dynamic and lifelike effect to outdoor scenes.

Revit Enhancements

Enscape 3.4 also includes several enhancements to Revit integration. The new version features improved support for Revit’s Section Box tool, which makes it easier to visualize specific parts of a project. Additionally, Enscape now supports the display of multiple Revit categories simultaneously, making it easier to see a complete view of a project.

Overall, Enscape 3.4 offers several new features and enhancements that make it an even more powerful tool for architects, engineers, and designers. Whether you are creating realistic visualizations of architectural designs, or you are looking to add more realism to your 3D models, Enscape 3.4 is a great tool to have in your arsenal.

Enscape + Chaos Group’s V-Ray

In 2022, Enscape merged with Chaos, a developer of visualization technologies that empower artists and designers to create photorealistic imagery and animation across all creative industries. Together, the newly-combined company is creating an end-to-end ecosystem of 3D visualization tools accessible to everyone. To learn more about this merger, read this article.

Revit 2023.1 introduces Twinmotion for Revit

As you may have heard at Autodesk University in September 2022, Autodesk is collaborating with Epic Games to include access to Twinmotion with all Revit subscriptions. Whether you subscribe to the AEC Collection or standalone Revit, use Flex pricing, or have an education license, you now have at your fingertips the real-time visualization power of Twinmotion for Revit.

Twinmotion is a real-time visualization tool that enables you to produce high-quality images, panoramas, standard or 360° VR videos and interactive presentations from design data. The changes you make in Twinmotion update in real-time.

Revit 2023.1 introduces Twinmotion for Revit, upgrades to MEP modeling tools, more analytical to physical model automation for structural analysis, and handy advancements for everyone, like the ability to edit revisions on multiple sheets, upgrades to the project browser and command functionality, and more!


The update installs Twinmotion for Revit and Datasmith Exporter for Revit, which allows you to open the current Revit model in Twinmotion with a single click. You can continue the design process and synchronize the changes in real-time.


A drop-down menu allows you to synchronize your changes via Direct Link Synchronize, or do a one-time  Export to Datasmith file. The export may be useful for scenarios where you prefer to import a file containing specific geometry into Twinmotion, or when you want to share a file with another design team.



Thinking about an upgrade? Recent releases of Revit are faster, user-friendlier, and chock-full of useful features. In Revit 2023 alone, the Revit Factory shipped:

  • New structural analysis workflows optimized for BIM
  • Electrical load analysis for early-stage systems design
  • Data Exchanges for better interoperability and collaboration
  • Cloud Parameter service for more consistent BIM standards
  • A raft of fine-tuned enhancements for your documentation tasks
  • A fresh look and feel and an easier-to-use Dynamo
  • A boatload of performance enhancements that improve loading times, graphic performance, and more


Launch Twinmotion for Revit directly from the Revit ribbon in Revit 2023.1. Immerse yourself in the intuitive creator environment, and turn your design data into photo-realistic stills, scenes, and scenarios. Paint a more complete picture of how your design is working, and better weigh options, reach decisions, and take clients and stakeholders through signature experiences that can add shine and sophistication to your practice — not to mention help you win more work.
