Assets are a fundamental part of the design process, giving context and life to a project. This release introduces the Adjustable Asset series, a selection of assets with modifiable functions, offering more flexibility when working with assets. You also get the following:

  • Multi-asset editing

  • Alpha channel export update

  • Improved rendering capabilities

  • More unique assets

  • Plus more!

Introducing Enscape for SketchUp!

Enscape, is an easy to use, real time rendering plugin for SketchUp. There is no need to carefully adjust your perspective before rendering, just start Enscape and fly to the spots you like. It’s fully dynamic and a lot of fun to use, but most importantly, it will give you a fantastic rendered model to show your clients.

Features of Enscape include:

Live Update –

All modifications in SketchUp are automatically shown in Enscape – even during Virtual Reality!

Material Keywords –

Enscape uses a material keyword system to add detail to the SketchUp materials. In many cases, this works out of the box if your water is already specified as “water” in SketchUp.

Section Planes –

Use the SketchUp section plane to show interesting cross sections of your work.

Export Options –

Enscape has one click functionality and updates your Enscape scene as you modify your project in SketchUp. You also have export options such as 360° panoramas. Virtual reality functions for both Oculus and HTC Vive are also available with Enscape for SketchUp; and they are also accessible with a single click.

Speed over quality is the best feature, even competing with others like Twinmotion, Lumion, D5 among others. The ease of use, integration and capacity to get to a final configuration is also one of the best features.

I don’t dislike Enscape. I think I’d like it even more if it had even more diverse, realistic, and dynamic people. The asset library continues to improve. I’d love to customize my own proxies. Animated avatars, vehicles, birds, etc. would be amazing.


Enscape is a really powerful tool but it is also really easy to use. You can get amazing results in just a few hours of learning, and with a little investigation you can be a “pro” user in just a few days.


It is really easy to implement in your workflow as it integrates directly into Revit. We use it every single day, our students really love the results they can get and the feedback we receive is absolutely amazing. It’s a great product and I can’t recommend it enough.

The perks are easy presentations of 3D models of design to clients and beautiful quick-and-dirty renders. Without any delay or hassle we can connect our VR-headset to a PC and show our clients around. It’s easy to create a simple online link to view designs or to create a walkthrough video for customers to take to work for internal presentations etc.

My computer has trouble running lot of comparable rendering softwares but Enscape has no troubles. I can fully utilize every feature offered by Enscape without any issues. I am graduate student studying architecture and Enscape creates gorgeous renderings and walkthroughs. Super easy to use; I watched literally one generic tutorial video and could easily figure everything out. Very compatible with all of the softwares I’ve tried integrating into it (revit, sketchup, rhino, etc).

Elmtec sell a number of extensions available for SketchUp:

Benefits Of Enscape

  • Real-Time Visualisation: Enscape provides real-time rendering capabilities, allowing users to instantly visualise and interact with their 3D models. This real-time feedback facilitates quick design iterations and decision-making during the design process.
  • Ease of Use: Enscape is known for its user-friendly interface and ease of use. Integration with popular design software, such as SketchUp, Revit, Rhino, and others, allows users to seamlessly incorporate Enscape into their existing workflows.
  • Live Updates: With Enscape, changes made to the 3D model are reflected in real time. This live update feature ensures that users can immediately see the impact of design changes, enhancing the efficiency of the design process.
  • High-Quality Visuals: Enscape produces high-quality, photorealistic visuals. The software’s rendering engine creates realistic lighting, reflections, and materials, making it suitable for creating compelling presentations, client walkthroughs, and marketing materials.
  • Virtual Reality (VR) Integration: Enscape supports virtual reality experiences, enabling users to immerse themselves in their designs. This is particularly useful for client presentations, as stakeholders can virtually explore and experience the project before it is built.
  • Quick Rendering: Enscape’s real-time rendering eliminates the need for time-consuming pre-rendering processes. Users can generate high-quality visualizations quickly, allowing for faster project turnaround times.
  • Lighting Analysis: The software includes lighting analysis tools, allowing users to assess the impact of natural and artificial lighting on their designs. This helps architects and designers optimize lighting conditions for both aesthetics and functionality.
  • Cloud Collaboration: Enscape allows for cloud collaboration, making it easier for teams to share and review designs. This feature enhances communication and collaboration among project stakeholders.
  • Animated Walkthroughs: Enscape enables users to create animated walkthroughs of their designs. This is beneficial for showcasing the spatial qualities of a project and conveying the design intent effectively.
  • Cost-Efficient: The real-time rendering capabilities of Enscape can contribute to cost savings by reducing the time spent on rendering and visualisation tasks. It streamlines the design process and allows professionals to focus on creativity and decision-making.

Still have some questions on how Enscape For SketchUp works?

We’ve got you covered!

Enscape for SketchUp real-time rendering & virtual reality that brings your visual exploration directly into your modeling tools so you can focus on creating, designing, and building.
Add light sources to your model to brighten up your project. From SketchUp, go to Extensions -> Enscape -> Enscape Objects. Keep your model clean by taking out extra geometry and materials, since the lighter your model is, the better it will perform in both SketchUp and Enscape. Use renderable proxies within your SketchUp model, such as vegetation, and Enscape will transform them into high-polygon, detailed objects that look very realistic. Use Enscape’s roughness map settings to adjust the roughness of your materials and create realistic-looking surfaces, such as crisp reflections and matt surfaces.
Enable Enscape in SketchUp The first method is to add the Enscape ribbon to the SketchUp Toolbar by right-clicking the SketchUp Toolbar and selecting the Enscape options. The first time this is done, the Enscape toolbar may open as ‘floating’.

Yes, Enscape works on Mac. Enscape’s real-time 3D rendering software has been available for the Mac platform for some time. Enscape works as a SketchUp extension, meaning you can design, test ideas, and visualize simultaneously without having to leave SketchUp.
