Enscape announces Enscape for Mac

Monday, October 4th, 2021 | Posted by Jim Thacker

Enscape has announced Enscape for Mac, a new native macOS edition of its popular real-time rendering and virtual reality plugin for architectural and CAD software.

The new edition, which was announced at last week’s Envision 2021 user event, will ship in 2022.

An intuitive real-time renderer for architectural design and CAD software
First released in 2015, Enscape has quickly become one of the key tools in the architectural visualization market, reaching the top ten in the latest CGarchitect rendering survey.

The software live links to CAD and architectural design tools including Rhino and SketchUp, enabling users to explore large architectural scenes in real time, either on screen or in virtual reality.

The output is ray traced, and can be used for less demanding final-quality rendering, with the option to generate still images, animations, 360-degree panoramas or interactive scenes.

The software comes with its own time of day, clouds and atmospheric effects settings, and an accompanying library of over 2,500 assets like plants, vehicles and 3D people for populating scenes.

New native macOS edition due in 2022
Although Enscape can currently be used on Apple hardware via Boot Camp, the new native macOS edition should improve performance on Macs.

Enscape is currently inviting anyone interested to sign up for its mailing list to be notified of when the beta program begins. The stable release is currently scheduled for the “first half of 2022”.

Pricing and system requirements
The current production release, Enscape 3.1, is available for Archicad 21+, Revit 2018+, Rhino 6.0+, SketchUp 2018+ and Vectorworks 2021+ running on Windows 7+. It works with both AMD and Nvidia GPUs.

The software is rental-only, with node-locked licences costing $69.90/month or $478.80/year and floating licences costing $814.80/year.
