Shared material library for all CAD apps

Reminder: If you encounter any issues with Enscape (including installation problems) or your subscription please reach out to our dedicated support team directly through the Help Center or by using the Feedback button as detailed here. Thank you for your understanding.
  • Is there any work being done to create a shared material library for all cad apps? Also the ability to export and import "enscape" materials as well as functionality to point enscape to a desired path location for material libraries? We currently have a system set up that gives all our users access to a common material library for enscape, but its a pain to setup/maintain since there is no direct support for this type of workflow. Most of our users don't know how to create a "good" material and having this ability that spans all platforms would be great and allows our firm to achieve greater visual consistency!

    Thanks a lot for your feedback.


    Our focus is currently on the custom Asset library functionality, which will work with together with all CAD solutions. Afterward, we can look into focusing on for example this request if it gains more traction as well. I've gladly forwarded your message to our developers too. :)

  • Howdy, Much obliged for this sharing. At the point when I click "make new library", I see "neglected to make library" blunder and I couldn t discover the reoson. Have you ever observed this sort of blunder?

    Have you gotten around to this yet? I usually use both Rhino and Archicad for different projects and in different stages of the design proces, and it really seems like such a waste of time to keep control of two material libraries.


    I hope this is fixed already, but I can't seem to find this feature.
