Enscape plans Mac version and integration with TestFit as its first SDK partnership
Enscape, a leading provider of 3D real-time rendering and virtual reality technology for the global AEC industry, announced this week at the company’s first user event: ENVISION 21, its plans to release Enscape for Mac, it’s first SDK partnership with TestFit Inc. and its future roadmap.
Enscape welcomed over 6000 architects, designers, planners, and 3D artists worldwide. The three-day interactive virtual event featured leading architects and designers, including Wolfram Putz from Graft Architects, Florian Kohlbecker from Kohlbecker Gesamtplan GmbH, and Michael Drobnik from Herzog & de Meuron, who shared their views on industry issues, trends, and the benefits of adopting new technologies into the design workflow of architectural projects.
The event kicked off with a welcome from Christian Lang, Enscape CEO, where he shared his views on the advancements of visualization technologies and how Enscape plays a significant role in democratizing architectural visualization. “By integrating deeply into your BIM modeling software, focusing on simplicity and ease of use, we transform the discipline of architectural visualization into a mission-critical tool of today’s design process, right from the very start, throughout all phases of architectural projects.” In support of this, he announced Enscape’s latest developments.
Enscape for Mac Available in 2022
Due to great demand from users and the AEC industry, the company announced its plans to release Enscape for Mac in the first half of 2022.
Integration With TestFit as Enscape’s First SDK Partnership
The company also announced the availability of an Enscape Software Development Kit (SDK) to offer its real-time rendering engine to selected technology companies in the AEC industry. Enscape also announced its first SDK partnership with TestFit Inc.
The generative design solution helps architects and property developers gauge feasibility and plan a high-level layout of spaces in the initial planning phases. The visualization power of Enscape will complement TestFit’s offering, making the planning process much more engaging and communicative.
Further Product Improvements Driven by the Needs of the AEC Industry
Enscape announced that it will continue to be driven by the needs of AEC professionals and the industry in general. The company also stated that it will continue making quality improvements and add new features and more diverse assets and materials to support the design workflow.
“We will constantly listen to direct customer feedback, and we will do everything we can to prioritize and meet those requirements,” stated Petr Mitev, Vice President, Visualization Product Group. “We will continue to focus on a product that is highly accessible, easy to use, and serves not only as a visualization tool but as a tool that supports the entire design workflow.”
Other product developments include the migration from the OpenGL platform to Vulkan, which will allow Enscape to continue optimizing for performance and deliver an even higher graphics quality while still delivering real-time feedback and shortening feedback loops for design decisions.
