Enscape version 3.3 is out now!

Enscape’s latest release will help architects and designers improve their design workflow even further and create even more impressive real-time visualisations and immersive experiences. New features allow users to import building surroundings into renderings, improve visualisations of glass and water surfaces, add new educational assets and materials into scenes, and more.

Experience more vivid visualisations with Enscape 3.3

NEW Site Context

Incorporate a building’s real-life surroundings into your visualisations with Enscape’s new Site Context feature. Ideal for use during the design process itself, this new feature gives context to a building’s relationship with its environment.

By utilising OpenStreetMap data, you can now import a project’s surroundings into your renderings without the need for a third-party tool. Simply open Site Context, enter an address or coordinates, and select your choice of import: Buildings and Landmarks; Streets and Sidewalks; Topography, or import all surroundings.

The imported geometry and modeling topology will not include textures, keeping your project at the forefront of your visualisations while providing all-important site context. The surrounding geometry is only visible in Enscape, keeping your project file light and focused on the most relevant project data.

NEW Transparent Materials in Reflections

Reflections are incredibly important when it comes to generating realistic visualisations, which is why we are particularly excited about this next improvement.

As the name reveals, transparent materials will now appear in your reflections if you are using a graphics card that supports hardware-accelerated ray tracing (NVIDIA RTX series and AMD RX6xxx series).

With this enhancement, you will see visualisation improvements to rendered glass and water surfaces. Check out the slider to the left to see the difference in rendering quality.

NEW Education Assets and Materials

Our team of 3D artists has expanded the Enscape Asset Library and the Enscape Material Library once again with new high-quality assets and materials for you to place directly into your projects and renderings.

Select from 280 new education-themed assets, including classroom furniture, chalkboards and whiteboards, toys, playground equipment, and musical instruments. And choose from over 30 new materials to place into your education scenes. The asset package will also include a large collection of new 3D people.

Alpha channel export in Enscape with transparent background option

NEW Alpha Channel Export

It is now possible to render an image with a transparent background automatically applied, thanks to the new Alpha Channel Export.
A popular request from the Enscape community, this export feature will allow you to take your rendered image and add a background of your choice with greater ease – saving you time when post-processing your renders to get the desired look or effect.

NEW Pin Enscape on Top

Not everyone works with two screens or more, so there will be times when both the modeling software window and the Enscape rendering window need to be open and visible simultaneously.
With the ‘Pin Enscape on Top’ functionality, you can choose to pin the Enscape rendering window, together with the menus which open with the renderer, to the top of your modeling window. This allows you to work in your modeling software and immediately see your changes in the overlayed Enscape window, which is always on top when this function is activated.

To activate this, go to Enscape Window Settings > Preferences > Window > Pin Enscape

NEW Material Overwrite

We have yet another design workflow improvement for you with Enscape 3.3! It is now possible to replace an Enscape material directly via the Enscape Material Editor. This will save you from importing and exporting materials manually and from saving data files on your system.
A popular request from the Enscape community, this export feature will allow you to take your rendered image and add a background of your choice with greater ease – saving you time when post-processing your renders to get the desired look or effect.
