  • Hi Dinispires


    Welcome to our forum.


    As seen on our Enscape for Mac page here, under the FAQ section:


    "There are plans to support Archicad, Vectorworks, and Rhino."


    Additionally, you can sign up for the mailing list for news on future CAD support.

    ¿Is there some estimated launch? Q3-Q4 2022, Q1 2023?

    Not at the moment, I'm afraid. You can still also always sign up for our newsletter (bottom of the page) if you wish to receive further Enscape Mac news.

    Hi,

    Any news about archicad/enscape on macOS platforms? No info in the newsletter..

    Not at the moment, I'm afraid. Once we have any to share, we'll also forward them through our newsletter in the future of course.

  • I would second the request for SOME sort of update on this front. We use Archicad on Mac- not going to switch to PC in the near future, not going to go to another BIM solution.
    I feel that you all have gone "dark" on this matter. If you could give some update it would be very helpful. We can certainly be patient within reason, and I realize these things may take time. But I'd much rather have an update and a statement of "it's going to take longer than we anticipated" than just putting a "coming soon" tag on it indefinitely. That's really unproductive for a company that is trying to make software decisions.
    I know we can sign up for the newsletter- we have done so. But it's been close to year now since Enscape for Sketch on the Mac came out, and all the other Mac users have gotten is a generic "we are working on a version for your software" statement.
    I'm not trying to give you all a hard time- but I think you should know that as an end user (or a hopeful one), there is a degree of frustration with an open ended "coming soon" statement and no parameters to define what the time table MIGHT be. Consider putting something out there please- I get it if there are setbacks or you are finding its bigger undertaking that you had anticipated, but really some peak behind the curtains would be much better that a "sign up for a newsletter" (that has no news relevant to this particular issue) canned response. Honestly I have yet to even see a newsletter in 6 months, come to think off it.
    My candid feedback to this approach is that it is not setting the framework for a good relationship with your potential user base.
    Just feedback to consider. Thanks for reading.

    At least, we have news for the Enscape plugin for Archicad: there are no plans to release such plugin.

  • Hmm- they may want to update their FAQ section on the "Enscape for Mac" page then... because (contrary to the reality of the situation)

    forum.enscape3d.com/wcf/index.php?attachment/43144/:
    Hence our frustration...

    Curious: If Enscape is important to your business why not get one PC laptop and use Enscape with Archicad?

    Ah, such a simple solution- turn the office into a mixed environment. Uggh- I have worked in that previously and it is always a mess.
    So what then? Throw away tens of thousands of dollars in the Mac systems we have made over the years to spend several thousand more to restructure the entire company to switch to PC for a one thousand dollar rendering program...
    No, we do not NEED it. Would I like it start using Enscape? MAYBE- it looks intriguing and they tell me it's coming... and yet..
    That is the part I am frustrated with, and honestly at this point, I'll just stick with TwinMotion. I'm not going to switch over (back) to Microsoft and registries, viruses and all the other nonsense that comes with that territory for a possibly better rendering software. Not even for a single rendering station.

    Regarding Mac for Enscape ArchiCAD support joshuatree . CDH_Arch :


    Pardon about the confusion in this regard but I can add and clear up that there are actually plans to support Archicad, Vectorworks, and Rhino in the future as well - Currently we are striving for feature parity for our existing versions for SketchUp, but once we actually start to develop and implement support for ArchiCAD and such you will be notified.


    Further even though I'm aware that some users would like to have a more detailed timeline or such, at least for now I can only add that we are focusing on implementing multiple specific features like the video editor, material library and everything else missing. This is our main goal also next to then supporting the other mentioned CAD solutions including ArchiCAD.

  • 了解到Enscape for Mac版本即將上線。很高興買了m1電腦,等著存檔版上線,可是等了一年,m2電腦也上線了。仍然沒有消息。我必須等到 m3 電腦推出嗎?

    了解到Enscape for Mac版本即將上線。很高興買了m1電腦,等著存檔版上線,可是等了一年,m2電腦也上線了。仍然沒有消息。我必須等到 m3 電腦推出嗎?

    Thanks for your question.


    I'm afraid I may not entirely understand your request so let me know if I'm missing something. We also support Mac's with a M1 or M2 chip, so there is no need to wait for an M3 model if that is what you're asking.


    If your initial inquiry was lost during translation, please let me know by just rephrasing it once more so that I can help you further.
