Enscape™ is a real-time rendering plug-in for Revit, SketchUp, Rhino, ArchiCAD, and Vectorwork. It provides a virtual reality that you can explore via onscreen walkthroughs. Enscape is mainly for AEC industry (architecture, engineering, construction fields)

       2. BIM Data

BIM information is important for users to check the data. However, not all the software can list the BIM information in the model, like Revit.  In Enscape, users can select and inspect all BIM information within a project now. BIM information is listed and displayed.
