Enscape is a rendering software that allows you to create visualizations of your 3D models. It’s a plugin for live creation of photorealistic images and videos of your designs.
So not only an easy to integrate VR plugin, but also a very easy to use rendering engine.
In this blog post, we will introduce you to the basics of Enscape and then show you ten compositions created by Enscape artists.
Step 1 – Install the latest version
Visit the latest version page on the official website to download and install the plugin.
Step 2 – Open your 3D model
To start using Enscape, open your 3D model in your preferred program.
Once the installation is complete, you will be able to see and open an Enscape tab that allows you to access various features and settings.
Enscape works as a plugin for your 3D modeling software. You can use it with SketchUp, Revit, Rhino, ArchiCAD, or Vectorworks.
Step 3 – Add assets
Go to the Enscape tab > Tools panel > click Asset Library. This library allows you to drag and drop 3D objects like furniture, plants, people, cars, etc. into your model.
Step 4 – Launch Enscape
From the Enscape tab, click Start. This opens a new window where you can navigate and work on your model in real time.
Step 5 – Adjust the settings
To fine-tune your render, you can adjust the settings in the Enscape window.
The settings allow you to change the time of day, the weather, the lighting, the materials, the camera, and more. You can also save and load presets to use the same settings across multiple scenes.

2. Video: Click the film clapper icon or press “V” and then click the Export button at the bottom right side of the screen.
