With the right tools, architectural rendering can be an integrated part of the design process, an activity that emboldens your craft and inspires your vision for the final result.
Luimon is 3D rendering software made especially for architects. Lumion breathes life into rendering, making the process simple and enjoyable from the moment you import your model until you render out a beautiful image, video, or 360 panorama. It brings out the beauty and personality of your project, and it makes the experience of your design visible for everyone to see, long before the project is actually built.
With every iteration and last-minute client presentation, Lumion smoothly slides right into your current design process, creating a uniquely satisfying workflow. You will enjoy yourself as you surround your design with majestic mountains, idyllic waterfront views, captivating forests, energetic cities, and sleepy suburbs. Whatever you imagine for your design, Lumion makes it easy to capture the aesthetic, the sensations, and the emotions of your project.
No matter your CAD software, you can import your model(s) into Lumion and, within minutes, begin sculpting and shaping the real-life or conceptual context around your design. With over 6,000 models and 1,250 materials in the Lumion content library, there is no limit to how you can show your exterior, interior, landscape, or urban designs. Add hundreds of trees, plants, and other landscape features to connect your design to nature; create animations with people walking along the sidewalk or cars cruising down the street. Make materials feel real and illuminate your project with an eye-opening display of light.
