Starting with Enscape

Recommended Posts

Can someone give me a hint to using Enscape please.

 

I installed the beta version on VW2020 3.1 Architect and drew a quick 3D chair. Looking at it in left isometric and then choosing Enscape, I get ....

What step am I missing?

Take a look at the following Vw / Enscape webinar by @JRA-Vectorworks-CAD. I can’t use Enscape (since it’s Windows-only) so I don’t know the direct answer to your question, but perhaps his webinar might help you get started.

Thanks R,

 

This definitely shows a bug with my end somewhere.

 

The video says load the third party plugins. No problem there. I get the Enscape menu and when I click on the Enscape button, I get the three mode options in the mode bar.

 

However, when I click the Enscape button, the video shows Enscape loading. On my VW I get the message above.

 

This is where I stop, even though I have this 3D object selected. Where do I go from here?

I have no idea (since I’m on MacOS and can’t use Enscape), but as a complete guess:

  1. Before you try to start Enscape from the tool bar, maybe try with Vw being in a Perspective view (Narrow, Normal, or Wide)? As you noted that you’re in an Isometric view, perhaps Enscape doesn’t work with that type of projection. 
  2. That and maybe try with nothing selected.

Can someone attach a file that they know works with Enscape please?

 

I just want to exclude my file errors, if any, from the equation.

I have questioned Enscape directly and my bug report sent to them says that I have an incompatible graphics card 😔

 

Thanks for everyones attention and feedback 🙂

It's the graphics card on the motherboard on my Acer laptop.

 

Even though VW2020 works fantastically, Enscape advised me that they only support the popular graphics cards.

 

No problem, I'll just have to check out Enscape at work with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2070
