Artlantis Render

Producing presentation images of architectural, object, and automobile design projects, Artlantis Render is a 3D rendering platform for the creation of static images. Equipped with numerous viewpoint, lighting, and background functionalities, and offering user customisation of shadows and lenses, the software ensures that all projects are represented in photorealistic detail.

A clear and intuitive user interface is combined with CAD modelling software (including SketchUp and ArchiCAD) to generate exceptionally resolved rendered scenes and models. The unique ‘Postcards’ feature allows users to archive material settings and views at any stage of the project, with the capability for later retrieval thereof.

In conjunction with extensive view options, a broad catalogue of pre-made 3D models in the program’s Media Catalog makes it simple to enhance 3D scenes and interiors. Texture mapping, people, and landscaping are all fully integrated into the software, alongside an HDRI background capability.

Available for both Mac and PC operating systems, Artlantis Render can be used in tandem with Artlantis Studio to produce panoramic images and project animations.

Artlantis Studio

For the creation of animations and virtual panoramas, Artlantis Studio is the ideal software solution. Developed in partnership with AXYZ Design, Artlantis Studio animates objects, characters, and scenes.

The powerful software maintains an intuitive, user friendly interface, with 3D people and objects placed using a simple ‘drag’ and drop, and fully customisable in terms of scale, materiality, and colour.

Artlantis Studio’s camera simulation functionality allows navigation of a rendered scene, giving users and clients a feel of the interior atmosphere and character of a space. The programs ‘timeline’ window facilitates precision editing, and a broad range of lighting and lens features ensures high resolution graphics on each project.

In conjunction with iVisit 3D, Artlantis Studio allows for the creation of panoramic views of a project, with these images then exportable to Flash and other presentation platforms. Full 360º navigation means that project images can be viewed smoothly and seamlessly both on desktop computers and mobile devices on which the free iVisit 3D app is installed.

Artlantis 5

The latest in Abvent’s range of 3D rendering software, Artlantis 5 is the French company’s most comprehensive and user friendly program to date. Suitable for architects, designers, and students alike, the software generates high quality photorealistic renders for presentations and competitions.

Artlantis 5 incorporates features from earlier versions of the program, streamlining an already user friendly interface to optimise the rendering process. A collated workspace and full screen view capability on both Mac and PC allows for a holistic overview of projects and modelling tools, alongside a real-time, high definition preview functionality.

A multitude of viewpoints and the ability to save and organise each of these allows designers to truly interrogate a structure or object. Light sources, angles, solar shading, and camera lenses are all fully customisable, with numerous adjustable parameters ensuring that renders are optimised to best represent each project.

Though designed for 3D visualisation and rendering, Artlantis 5 also features 2D capabilities, allowing for orthogonal visualisations in plan and section views.

Artlantis 5 is compatible with most 3D modelling software, and can create and process the majority of 3D modelling files types. 

Designers can direct their creativity to deliver innovation inspired, sustainable buildings with GenerativeComponents, by quickly exploring a range of “what-if” alternatives. This unique generative design software creates efficiency between design intent and geometry. Designs can be refined through dynamically modeling, directly manipulating geometry, by applying rules and capturing relationships among building elements, or by defining complex building forms and systems through concisely expressed algorithms.

Scan to BIM

Historically scan to BIM technology has posed logistical hurdles when it came to getting point cloud data into Autodesk Revit in a workable format. With the release of Autodesk’s Revit 2011 product, IMAGINiT’s Scan to BIM add-on for Revit was the first software to provide the ability to view and interact with point clouds inside of Revit.

You can now view point clouds directly inside Revit. Scan to BIM™ takes this one step further, enabling you to not only visualize point clouds in Revit, but also to interact with them, assisting with automated recognition and placement of architectural elements such as walls, as well as MEP elements such as pipes and ducts.

Autodesk® Revit® Structure software is the purpose-built Building Information Modeling (BIM) solution for structural engineering firms, providing tools for structural design and analysis. Revit Structure integrates a multimaterial physical model and an independently editable analytical model for more efficient structural analysis while providing bidirectional links to popular structural analysis software. Make better decisions earlier in the design process by more accurately visualizing a structure before it is built. Revit Structure helps provide the advantage of BIM to improve multidiscipline coordination of structural design documentation, minimize errors, and enhance collaboration between engineering and architecture teams.
