Enscape announced its popular real-time rendering software used by architects and designers worldwide to turn their models into immersive 3D experiences is now available for the Mac platform. Following a successful open beta, Enscape for Mac is now shipping for SketchUp 2021 and 2022.
As a direct plug-in to the modeling software, architects and designers can enjoy an integrated real-time visualization and design workflow, quickly turn models into 3D experiences, iterate more effectively, and easily communicate their vision with teams, partners, and clients—leaving more time to focus on designing great spaces.
“The release of Enscape for Mac now brings a truly integrated real-time visualization workflow to the Mac platform. Many customers have helped develop this product through our open beta program, and they are excited to now have the choice of two great platforms: Windows and Mac,” said Petr Mitev, vice president of Visualization Product Group at Enscape.
“We are thrilled that our SketchUp users can now enjoy this popular real-time rendering software on the Mac platform. Enscape’s Mac version integrates directly into SketchUp, and no syncing, importing, or exporting is required. We know our Mac user base will be excited to now be able to seamlessly design and visualize their models in real time,” said Hugh McEvoy, director of strategy and business development at Trimble.
