If you're a Revit or ArchiCAD user, here is some good news for you. Abvent, the makers of Artlantis, have added the capability for turning your panoramic renderings from those programs into immersive iVisit3d projects that can be navigated on a website, on iPads, iPhones and Android devices via their new applications. This is good news because you can link your panoramic nodes together with their software to create mulit-node immersive environments, and put the steering wheel in the hands of your clients...Read More
This isn't a formal review because I haven't had any free time lately. It's more of just a quick brain dump after using the Artlantis 5 Studio demo for a couple of hours. I'll try to do a more thorough review later because I get asked all the time, "which rendering program should I get?"Read More
It's finally here:
Abvent has announced the launch of Artlantis 5, the latest version of the fastest, stand-alone 3D rendering application developed especially for architects and designers.
If you haven't been watching the reveal over the last 30 days...Read More
Wow, this is huge news! The main two rendering engines I have been using are combining forces in what looks to be a great partnership. I'm not sure how this will play out because Artlantis is very fast, while Maxwell is really accurate but we all know the tradeoffs are eachother's weaknesses. Artlantis is not hyper-realistic while Maxwell is slow. Of course I'm willing to live with each of these weaknesses because the strengths are why I use them in the first place. I always choose the best tool for the job at hand.
Hopefully this will mean we users get the best of both worlds combined into one super-power rendering application.
I recently wrote an article about a project I've been working on where I used Sketchup, Bonzai3d, Revit and Artlantis in my 3d design workflow. The article was written for Abvent, the makers of Artlantis. Originally they posted it to their blog and Facebook page, and today they put on the front page of their website. I am truly honored.
