Lumion v8.5 Released with LiveSync for ArchiCAD

WARMOND, Netherlands, June 18, 2018 – ​Building on the success of LiveSync for Revit and SketchUp, Lumion 8.5 expands its simultaneous, real-time rendering functionality with the new LiveSync for ArchiCAD.

Now, architects and designers can immediately set up a real-time visualization of their ArchiCAD models. If they change the model’s shape in ArchiCAD, they’ll see these changes instantly taking place in Lumion’s dynamic, true-to-life environments, complete with fully featured landscapes, highly detailed materials, photorealistic lighting and shadows, and objects from a massive content library.

Architects can also sync materials and camera views, allowing them to enjoy the convenience of an interactive ArchiCAD-Lumion workflow that lets them feel the space as they design.

The new LiveSync for ArchiCAD in Lumion 8.5 also includes:

  • Point-of-view synchronization between ArchiCAD and Lumion
  • Add and save Lumion’s beautiful materials to your Lumion project
  • Real-time materials synchronization and visualization
  • Automatic model importing into Lumion (no need to separately import a model)

The LiveSync plug-ins for ArchiCAD, SketchUp and Revit are free for everyone and available on the Lumion website or the relevant app store.
