Additional information

System Requirements

Overview
Enscape uses ray tracing for its real-time rendering, and almost all calculations Enscape performs are being handled on the graphics card. For this reason, your computer should at least meet the minimum requirements set out below.

Required CAD Software
The Enscape plug-in is provided for the following software:

Revit* 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020
SketchUp Make & Pro 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020
Rhino 5.0 64 bit and 6.0
ArchiCAD 21, 22, and 23
Vectorworks 2020 (Service Pack 3)
*Revit LT is not supported

The Enscape installer provides the plugin for all of the above CAD’s, you do not need a dedicated installer specific to your CAD, and you can specify which CAD’s you want to install Enscape for during the installation procedure.

Note: There are conflicts with two other Revit plugins: Colouriser and Techviz. To avoid incompatibilities, please uninstall them before using Enscape

System Requirements:
Enscape performs its renders using your graphics card (GPU), but the graphics card has to have dedicated VRAM, and not shared VRAM as found with Intel Integrated Graphics chips. If your CPU and RAM are capable of handling Revit, for instance, and you have a capable GPU, Enscape should work. A good CPU can speed up Enscape’s loading times. The system requirements to run Enscape, as well as the Standalone Executable files that can be exported from Enscape, are identical.

It is also recommended that your internet connection is fast and stable, and that you should use a direct cable connection and avoid using a Wi-fi connection where possible, as this can slow down the Asset Library loading times.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

Operating System:

* Windows 7 64 Bit or higher.
* On MacOS, Windows installed via Bootcamp

Graphics Card:

* NVIDIA or AMD GPU with 2GB VRAM
* Supports OpenGL 4.4

* Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable
* Vulkan Runtime

Unsupported Hardware:

* Radeon 6000 mobile GPU’s
* Intel Integrated Graphics onboard GPU’s
