October 11, 2023

Today, Chaos extends Enscape for Mac, connecting its intuitive real-time visualization tools to even more CAD/BIM applications. With full integrations into Archicad and Vectorworks, architects can explore high-quality 3D walkthroughs at every stage of the design process, yielding faster changes and detailed visualizations for their clients.


“Enscape takes the expertise out of visualization, so architects can assess the impact of design decisions in record time,” said Petr Mitev, VP Product, Solutions for Designers at Chaos. “With our new Mac integrations, we’re bringing that power to even more people, so designers can enjoy real-time feedback from their favorite applications and operating systems.”


Used throughout the architectural world, Enscape is one of the easiest ways to visualize CAD/BIM data in real time. Perfect for daily design reviews, live demos, and client coordination, Enscape moves projects forward via instant feedback, giving architects the ability to represent their work in the moment, using the power of immersive 3D.
