    Enscape 2.4 released

    Having spent several days with several different clients working 'at the coal face' doing real time modelling in Revit with Enscape 2.3 and then receive an email now about 2.4 being released I am really impressed with how Enscape continues to develop

    I used to do this sort of real-time design with clients beside me (residential alterations) with 3dsMax and Revit but it was a little basic and updating the model was fiddly.

    Lumion is wonderful but not, to my mind, as Revit-friendly to use in real-time modelling in front of clients -

    one screen showing Enscape one showing Revit (clients absolutely love it).

    Anyhow, there is a neat video about Enscape 2.4 here:

    Just trying out the new Asset Library - drag and drop English Oak tree - nice



    And the Export to Web standalone, allowing clients to view the model in a browser via Enscape's server (I assume) works very impressively. It's a little jumpy with my Wacom Intuos pen at times but very clever and looks really good - this is a screenshot using the Chrome browser:

    Oh well, it was nice while it lasted

    The online model doesn't display in Safari in MacOS or iOS - nor in Chrome on those iOSs either. I've tried a few workarounds suggested in forums online but essentially webGL2 doesn't seem to work at present, but the model does display in Chrome on my PC.

    Just a postscript to say that the client I tested the model viewer link with last night is very impressed with it - seems to work OK for him on a PC - he didn't say which browser but I doubt it was Edge or IE.

    I tried him first as he is very tech-savvy - now to try it on clients at the other end of that scale

    Haven't got to play with all the new features yet - but the sky is even nicer now - and the crumply horizon of the white background has finally gone.

    (BUT)

    Just be mindful that if you plan to use the new assets AND create planting schedules (in your every day work) you will need to write exclusion-filters and/or pull some other tricks to keep them out of your documentation.


    I've made mention on their forum but fear with development moving ever-more toward Lumion-like features for the viz. fraternity - and increasingly less-targeted at "BIMmy" workflow-wants, imagine I'll get little support.

    Do users actually use Revit for planting schedules? Just curious . I recall someone in the forum asking a while ago about landscape users of Revit.

    For my small projects planting is mostly decorative entourage, but matching plants, visualisation and 'drawings' has long been a problem.
    My daughter is a Landscape Architect in London and she mentions regular issues with matching their plant schedules to architects' Revit models and demands for precise visualisation of planting.

    We certainly do.

    I rarely have to create tree schedules (residential), and I when I do, I'll use a seperate 2D model element for trees, keeping that documentation separate from visualization.

    I always seem to be buggering up my views that aren't always set up correctly to exclude planting, so I create a Render phase for render views, and put plants and entourage in that time zone.

    Interesting, thanks.

    Trees are often significant items for planning applications and so that is the only place I find a real need to closely matching visualisation to drawings. ArchVision stuff can be made to look sort of reasonable now that they have the Editor to remove the weird bases from the trees but you tend to be always using a tree that is something like rather than the exact plant.

    Im actually super disappointed that they added in *assets* that arent from the model. Now we have all the same baggage and issues we had in other Viz platforms. Thats a shame, in my opinion.

    In the past they seem to have listened to user views and so I would have to assume that some users have requested the asset library - not necessarily Revit users of course.
