  • Hey Guys,


    I haven't been using Enscape long but there are a few things that I have noticed that IMHO could really take Enscape to the next level. Please note I'm using Revit.


    1) Vegetation - The grass is OK, but nothing amazing more of a fur feel would really lift the quality. The trees and plants are pretty much useless if you're going for Photo real quality images. I have found they are OK for a night seem, where you can't really make out the detail, but during the day they look very fake. Maybe better support for the entourage content in it's 2D form until the 3D models are better suited for 3D?


    2) Sketchup Import - I have no idea how this would even work, but here it goes. Sketchup has an amazing amount content in it's 3D Wharehouse, most of which won't import into Revit without a high degree of difficulty and when it does, it looses a fair amount of detail. My Question is.... is there anyway to import Sketchup content into Enscape without importing the part into Revit? If you could make this work I think I would sign up for 10 years upfront with Enscape :thumbsup:


    All in all great product and I look forward to utilizing it more for further jobs.

  • Great questions. We struggle with the same challenges. There's a Trello ticket on being able to have proxies inside Enscape for Revit (fbx, obj but it could also be sketchup).


    This would allow us to tap into existing libraries (3dsky, evermotion, sketchup warehouse, model+model, ...).

    Nice! This would be seriously amazing.

    Hey vox_boy

    Thank you for your feedback. First of all - there is full support for any Archvision RPCs, you do not rely on our replacements. Just uncheck the 'Replace Archvision Content' option in the Enscape settings -> 'Advanced' tab, restart Enscape and you'll see any RPCs displayed the way they show up in Revit.


    Apart from that, I have added you vote to our poll on proxy support for Revit. Let us know any further ideas you might have!

  • Agreed on both points. Being able to bring sketchup models into our revit models would be great (or vice versa). Trying to do so from within Revit is extremely cumbersome because the materials don't come through correctly (not to mention it bogs down the revit model).


    And I'll have to agree about the vegetation models available with Enscape. Some of them are decent, but the trees in particular are really fake looking (too low poly up close, need better LOD). The new ones in Lumion are a good quality level to aim for.

    Hey Kaj,


    Yes I have played around with this setting but the results are no where near as good as what I get from Vray. That's what I mean by better support for the 2D entourage. :)


    Thanks, Nick
