Enscape for Mac Now Available for Vectorworks

Now, All Vectorworks Users Can Harness the Power of the Cutting-Edge Rapid Visualization Plugin.

Columbia, MD (October 17, 2023) — Chaos, the world’s largest 3D visualization company and a member of the Vectorworks Partner Network, has extended Enscape for Mac, directly connecting its intuitive real-time visualization tools to the Vectorworksplatform on Mac OS. With full integration into Vectorworks, architects and designers can explore high-quality 3D walkthroughs at every stage of the design process, yielding faster changes and detailed visualizations for their clients.

“This collaboration solidifies our commitment to incorporating next-gen technology that delivers immediate advantages to our customers,” said Vectorworks Senior Director of Rendering and Research Dave Donley. “Enscape’s powerful real-time rendering capabilities perfectly complement Vectorworks’ existing tools and resources, further empowering our customers to transform their models into immersive 3D experiences while streamlining their review processes, saving valuable time, and ultimately helping them win more work. Now, our users on both Mac and Windows can fully embrace the advantages this exciting partnership offers.”

Used throughout the architectural world, Enscape is one of the easiest ways to visualize CAD/BIM data in real time. Perfect for daily design reviews, live demos, and client coordination, Enscape moves projects forward via instant feedback, allowing architects to represent their work in the moment using the power of immersive 3D.

Enscape for Mac Features:

  • Real-Time Walkthroughs – Navigate fully-rendered projects with perspective, walk and fly modes using a live link between Enscape and Vectorworks.
  • Render-Ready 3D Assets – Fill scenes with a wide range of accessories, vegetation, people, furniture and vehicles to bring more realism to a design.
  • Material Editing – Adjust material attributes like color, reflectivity, light emission and height to test ideas or lock in specific looks.
  • Visual Variety – Display scenes in a variety of rendering styles or adjust atmosphere settings like illumination and cloud density for clients in the moment.
  • Multiple Exports – Share visualizations with design teams and clients as stills, panoramas, web links and batch renders.

“Enscape takes the expertise out of visualization, so architects can assess the impact of design decisions in record time,” said Petr Mitev, VP Product, Solutions for Designers at Chaos. “With our new Mac integration for Vectorworks, we’re bringing that power to even more people, so designers can enjoy real-time feedback while working directly within the Vectorworks platform.”

Enscape for Mac is available now for Vectorworks 2024 and Vectorworks 2023 SP6. Existing users can download the new versions or improvements for free and subscription plans can be found at the Enscape pricing page. Users can also try Enscape for Mac with a free 14-day trial.
