LumenRT 2015 Introduces GRAPHISOFT® ArchiCAD® Integration
ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST POPULAR BIM SYSTEMS FULLY INTEGRATED WITH LUMENRT 2015
November 20, 2014, Beaverton, Oregon — E-on software is pleased to announce that LumenRT 2015 is now fully-integrated with GRAPHISOFT® ArchiCAD® on the PC and Mac platforms.
The interface includes full support for the export of ArchiCAD geometry and BIM information along with an integrated LumenRT proxy content library of plants, vehicles, and characters.
With the ArchiCAD LumenRT Exporter (standard on all versions of LumenRT), ArchiCAD users can instantly transform their models into rich, immersive scenery complete with wind-blown trees, moving vehicles, animated characters, wavy water, clouds, and atmospheres.
According to Ivo Venkov, Architect & Founder of PAA Studio, "LumenRT is possibly the best thing that has happened to BIM since BIM itself, by allowing the exploration of BIM scenes in real-time with a true-to-life environment."
"We welcome e-on software and LumenRT into the ArchiCAD community," said Laszlo Vertesi, Graphisoft Vice President of Product Development. "LumenRT provides a rich environmental modeling capability that nicely complements the ArchiCAD BIM solution."
"ArchiCAD integration has been a top request from our users and we are pleased to deliver this important capability with LumenRT 2015," said Nicholas Phelps, CEO of e-on software. "The Graphisoft team was extremely helpful during the integration process and we look forward to providing LumenRT to the ArchiCAD user community. We believe the combination of ArchiCAD and LumenRT delivers unparalleled environmental realism in a simple-to-use, real-time platform and is a must have for any ArchiCAD user seeking a more compelling and engaging way to convey their design vision."
LumenRT is the leading 3D immersive communication platform for architecture and GeoDesign. With LumenRT, architects, designers, engineers, and GIS professionals can convey their design ideas and vision in much more compelling and engaging fashion – to tell a story by allowing the audience to "experience" the design rather than just seeing it.
