Artisan for BricsCAD enables easy and intuitive photorealistic rendering without leaving BricsCAD. Transfer your model into Artisan in seconds, apply drag and drop materials, pre-packaged lighting and backgrounds to your models. You can download and evaluate Artisan for BricsCAD complete with a large library of materials, backgrounds, and lighting. This version is the fully functional product but will render watermarked images until supplied with a license key (available to purchase from the store).
A simple and intuitive interface means you don’t need to be a rendering expert to use Artisan for BricsCAD. Drag & drop preset materials, lighting and backgrounds onto your models and then with just one click create great looking images from your 3D designs. Artisan for BricsCAD uses the Lightworks Author rendering engine to create stunning photorealistic images and high quality OpenGL for Real-time navigation and fast previewing of material and environment changes.
Artisan is launched directly from BricsCAD with no need for file export. Continue working on your design and then update your changes in Artisan at the click of a button. Artisan will update your model changes while keeping all of the material and lighting parameters you have defined.
Artisan isn’t just about creating a single final image, it’s also a great tool for visualising your model during design. Using the powerful Artisan SnapShot feature you can quickly & easily build up a range of design alternatives for your models. Explore and compare multiple material combinations, camera positions, lighting setups and backgrounds and save them all for later use. Select your favourite SnapShots for creation of final quality images and create them when you choose using batch rendering. Double click on SnapShots to display your rendered images in the main window. Select snapshots for printing or to use within your documents and presentations. You can even use Artisan for live demonstration of your designs with clients by using SnapShots as a storyboard.
Whether you are exploring early concept designs, creating images for internal design review or looking to impress clients with final quality renders, Artisan for BricsCAD is a fast and fun way to produce professional visualisations.
