Lumion By Act-3d is a Real-time 3D visualization tool for AEC Professionals. It allows you to create high resolutions still images and movies in Real-time so you don’t get any “unwanted surprises” after waiting for hours (or days and weeks) for an image/movie to render. With Lumion 8.0, you can now immerse your clients in a Virtual Reality (VR) world, showing them and letting them walk through their Building, Site, Residence even before it is built.
It’s very easy to import models that you’ve created with programs like Revit, Revit LT, 3ds Max, AutoCAD, Civil 3d, Map 3d, Infrastructure, Navisworks and others.
You can also bring in Models from Sketchup, ArchiCAD, Chief Architect and other 3d modeling programs.
Simple and Easy
The simple workflow and extensive 3D libraries allow new and experienced Lumion users to create beautiful still renderings and movies in just minutes.
