Why use Enscape for Vectorworks?

To get the most out of your Vectorworks rendering results, here are some best practices to follow:

  • Brighten up your project by adding light sources to your model. Use features such as spot light to draw focus on a building or Sunlight to change the time of day.
  • Keep your models clean and make sure there are no overlapping surfaces to avoid flickering of artifacts when rendering.
  • For enhanced speed and performance, ensure the elements that aren’t in use are turned off.
