Improved interoperability with other 3D CAD software

  • Lumion 6 comes with Intelligent Importing whereby Lumion checks and fixes certain kinds of common errors in 3D models.
  • Languages such as Japanese, Korean and Chinese which use complex text characters presented some difficulties in importing some models and textures. These issues have been tackled and fixed in Lumion 6.
  • In Lumion 6 importing .DWG files is now faster and more reliable than ever.
  • Lumion 6 supports .FBX 16 files, the latest version of this excellent file format for 3D architectural models.
  • AutoCAD® Architecture® now seamlessly delivers architectural components like walls, stairs and doors to Lumion 6.
Since that Lumion is compatible with most 3D modeling tools and offers seamless uploading and reloading of models, is a great benefit to many Lumion customers.

Lumion Collada Exporter for Revit

The Lumion Collada Exporter for Revit is now available via the Autodesk Exchange.

Now you can easily export your Autodesk® Revit® project to COLLADA format (*. DAE). This exporter was created to improve workflow with Lumion 3D (easy to use architecture visualization software) but can be used with other 3D software too.

- Exporter works with Revit 2014 and Revit 2015 and Revit 2016
- Export geometries, materials and textures
- Collect textures to dedicated folder
- Geometry accuracy option
- Linked files support

McNeel’s Rhinoceros

Many Lumion users also incorporate McNeel’s Rhinoceros (Rhino) program into their workflow. To coincide with the development of Lumion 5.0, a dedicated exporter has been developed especially for Rhino, making model transfer between the two programs a breeze.

Sketchup (.SKP) File Support

SketchUp users will be delighted to learn that after Lumion version 4.0 directly supports importing native SketchUp files. This means that you no longer need to export your SketchUp file to a Collada (.DAE) format, instead you can save the SketchUp file in the standard (.SKP) format. This means that with latest Lumion you experience a seamless workflow by using a single file format in both SketchUp and Lumion.
