Lumion 2023.0 is released!
March 13 2023
Since the inception of Lumion, the idea that 3D rendering should be accessible to every architect and designer - regardless of technical background - has propelled us forward. Our aim has always been to provide an easy, fast, and intuitive way of visualizing the future. To empower architects to create without hurdles or hesitation and showcase designs that go beyond form and function to capture hearts and minds.
Lumion’s new render engine ensures that both customers with ray tracing capable graphics cards as well as those who haven’t adopted this capability yet can continue to use the software without disruption or having to sacrifice speed over quality. While ray tracing unlocks the ability to create physically accurate lighting, shadows, and reflections with minimum intervention, Lumion 2023 will still enable a flexible experience to help you achieve your desired result.
