LumenRT 2

3D technology for the interactive visualization of architectural projects
  1 Screenshot
LumenRT is a Sketchup plugin that allows you to make your architectural projects interactive.

LumenRT is the only solution that combines real-time rendering with a full, physical simulation of light, letting you accurately experience the true volume and lighting of your designs.

Create high quality real-time visualizations of your models and explore them with your mouse!

LumenRT is powered by a state-of-the-art real-time engine. For maximum compatibility, it also features a low quality mode optimized for performance on slower boards.

Experience Your Designs in Real-Time 3D:
Gone are the days of static renders and animations: LumenRT lets you create photo-realistic environments and explore them in real-time, with your mouse or keyboard!
Walk or fly through your designs with full indirect lighting and enjoy a truly immersive 3D experience!

The New Media for Architects:
LumenRT real-time environments are packaged into convenient, self-contained executables that can be run on any computer without requiring additional software.
Securely share projects with your clients, so they can explore your designs at their own pace: It's a new way of communicating that's sure to get you the competitive edge!
