Enscape
Enscape™ – Real-Time 3D Walk-throughs with Live Integration in Autodesk® Revit®.

General Usage Instructions

1. Install Enscape

Use the Enscape setup tool to integrate Enscape into your Revit installation. When finished, you should see Enscape as a new “Ribbon”-menu bar in Revit. Just click the orange start button and let the show begin.  

2. Load your Revit drawing

Open your Revit drawing and ensure, that you have a valid 3D view. The more material settings and objects you have in your scene, the better it may look.

3. Start Enscape

Press the start button. You can walk using the WASD keys with your left hand, while looking around with your mouse. Have a look at the on-screen-hints. If you update your Revit-model, Enscape updates instantly.

4. Tweak materials and lights

You might have noticed that it’s a bit dark or colorless. No problem, just place light sources inside Revit to enhance your walkthrough. You can greatly tune the material appearance by changing the glossiness.
