You asked, we listened. Lumion 8.5 includes a brand new version of Lumion LiveSync for ArchiCAD 21, adding to Lumion LiveSync for Revit and Lumion LiveSync for SketchUp.
With the new Lumion LiveSync for ArchiCAD 21, you can immediately set up a real-time visualization of your ArchiCAD model in Lumion:
Real-time updates in Lumion when you change models and materials in ArchiCAD 21.
Add Lumion materials to your LiveSync model in Lumion.
Perspective camera synchronization between ArchiCAD 21 and Lumion.
IMPORTING & EXPORTING
Real-time updates in Lumion when you change models and materials in ArchiCAD.
The ability to add Lumion materials to your LiveSync model in Lumion.
Water and glass materials from ArchiCAD are automatically converted to the corresponding Lumion materials, provided that the material names include the words ‘Water’ or ‘Glass’ in any of the supported languages in ArchiCAD.
Perspective camera synchronization between ArchiCAD and Lumion.
Surface optimization to remove duplicated vertices, resulting in better performance while reducing the size of Collada .DAE files.
Option to enable/disable the smoothing of curved surfaces.
Option to enable/disable nodes export for object placement (trees/lights) in the .DAE file. No need to use .3DS workaround any more.
New Collada Exporter for Revit 2015-2019 and ArchiCAD 21
Geometries are now merged based on the materials while exporting. This makes the .DAE files smaller, so they can be imported faster in Lumion.
Geometries are now triangulated.
Exported nodes are saved in the .DAE file.
DAE files are now more compliant with the Collada 1.4 standard. This means that you can import DAE files that are exported with the Lumion LiveSync plug-ins for Revit and ArchiCAD in 3D applications that support this standard, for example in Blender.
Importing .DAE and .SKP files is about 40% faster than in Lumion 8.3 (and older versions).
