Lumion 8.5 is available now!

Lumion 8.5

Accelerated workflows. Live synchronizations.
For Revit, SketchUp, and now, ArchiCAD.
With the new LiveSync for ArchiCAD, you can immediately set up a real-time visualization of your ArchiCAD model in Lumion. Change the model’s shape and you’ll see these changes instantly taking place in Lumion’s dynamic, true-to-life environments.

Sync materials and camera views, and enjoy the convenience of an interactive ArchiCAD-Lumion workflow that lets you feel the space as you design.
Lumion 8.5 is a free update for Lumion 8 or 8.3 users. The LiveSync plugin for ArchiCAD is free for everyone.

New LiveSync for ArchiCAD

Accelerate your 3D design workflows by modeling your ArchiCAD project while seeing it in Lumion’s real-time, breathtaking environments. The new LiveSync for ArchiCAD plugin lets you instantly establish a live connection for simultaneous modeling and rendering.

By modeling designs in their future environments, you’ll dive into the creative flow of design development. Solve design problems by exploring how your model interacts with real-life elements such as light and shadow. And enhance presentations by making changes to your model on-the-fly and rendering them immediately, beautifully.

Real-time materials synchronization

Feel the rough textures of a weathered brick wall. Take in the aromas of new wood furniture, and remember what it’s like walking barefoot on cold stone tiles in the morning.

With LiveSync for ArchiCAD, you can breathe life into the design by applying any of Lumion’s 1000+ high-definition materials to the real-time, synchronized model. As you continue working on the design, you can tweak the material settings exactly to your liking and then save your material layouts for future rendering.

Live point-of-view synchronization

Synchronizing your design and rendering workflow has never been this smooth. When you rotate the view of your building in ArchiCAD, the point-of-view rotates in Lumion. Find that perfect viewing angle, you’ll have the same point-of-view in Lumion.

With live point-of-view synchronization, LiveSync in Lumion 8.5 immediately adopts the ArchiCAD camera perspective, helping you work faster and effectively.

“Lumion changed the way I tackle visualization. It’s now easier to start rendering from the very beginning of the design process and use [the renders] to make design decisions."

Martin Chavanne, designer at Cline Design Associates and owner of ArchiTechTour.
