  • Hi all,

    We are using Enscape on our MEP project for coordination and placing of lighting fixtures accurately. At present the enscape model looks very pretty but does not portray the correct lighting profile given from the manufacturers .ies (Photometric web) file.

    When we turn off the self illuminating material within the lighting family and allow it to only illuminate with the .ies file, it doesnt illuminate.

    Is this a setting i have missed or a feature you are working on to develop in future? This would be an amazing feature as it would operate an industry leader in real time lighting design workflow.

    Thanks, Andrew

  • Are you in night time? The lights turn off during the day.
    Other tips.
    Turn off 'radius estimation'.

    Add a couple of zero to Initial Intensity (make 500 lm = 50000 lm).
    Turn off AutoExposure and make it 80%.
