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.
