More about this product

When materials feel real, designs become lively experiences in the mind. Just seeing smooth hardwood floors can trigger memories of sliding across the living room in your socks. Soft gravel paths can bring up the sounds of small pebbles and sticks crunching underfoot. Coarse brick textures take you back to the stately houses you’d pass on your way home from school.

Vivid materials can tell a vivid story about your design, and in Lumion 10.3, you can now make materials feel real with the new displacement map import feature.

By importing your own displacement maps, you can give any material a natural and realistic appearance that makes it look as if you could reach out and touch it. Simply create or download your own displacement map (from wherever you prefer to get your materials), and, in an instant, you can enhance the texture and detail of your project’s materials to show exactly how they will feel.

Lumion Version 10.3

In this Lumion 10.3 render, a displacement map was imported and added to a rock material.

Lumion 10.3 also expands the reach of its real-time rendering feature with the new LiveSync for AutoCAD. If you use Autodesk AutoCAD for your 3D modeling, you can now change the model’s shape or materials in AutoCAD and these changes are immediately reflected in Lumion’s breathtaking, richly detailed environments. Now, you can always view your AutoCAD model with accurate lighting and shadow, surrounding context such as urban neighborhoods or rural settings, and beautiful, realistic materials.

What’s new in Lumion 10.3?

Import your own displacement maps

When materials feel real, designs come to life. In Lumion 10.3, you can now import your own displacement maps into Lumion’s built-in or custom materials. With this feature, the act of seeing your architectural visualizations becomes the experience of feeling them, heightening emotion while drawing viewers into your designed building or space.

The new displacement map import feature requires that you download or make your own displacement maps for Lumion’s built-in or customized materials. For the best performance, import textures with a maximum width/height of 2,000 pixels and 4,000 pixels (2K and 4K textures).

New LiveSync for AutoCAD

Always get a real-time view of your AutoCAD 3D model in Lumion’s breathtaking, full context environments with LiveSync for AutoCAD, new in Lumion 10.3.

The free Lumion LiveSync plugin lets you set up a simultaneous, real-time connection between your 3D model in AutoCAD and Lumion 10.3. Change the model’s shape in AutoCAD to test a modified design, and you’ll instantly see the model updated in Lumion so you can view it with accurate lighting and shadow, surrounding context such as urban neighborhoods or rural settings, and beautiful, realistic materials.


Lumion 10.3 is now available as a free upgrade for Lumion 10 users.
