New in Lumion 5.7. Share your architectural designs with anyone!

 

Share your architectural designs with anyone!

Architecture is a competitive business. It demands continuously thinking up new ways of convincing potential clients to choose your ideas and designs over those of your competitors.

MyLumion enables you to go beyond traditional visualizations with reliable, portable, easy and quick interactive rendering. With the press of a button anyone in the world can take a look inside your designs interactively.

How it works

It works by sending a weblink to your email, which when clicked, allows you to access and look around the rendered results. Think of it as Google® Streetview® for your own building designs. All it takes is a few minutes to set up and render.

It works on phones, tablets and desktop computers and nearly all browsers are supported. The best news is that you do not need to learn anything to get started. All you need is Lumion 5.7 and a few minutes later anyone can take a look at your designs.

Build your scene

You create a project on MyLumion.com by using the Lumion software package. Lumion allows you to import a model from a CAD package like Revit or Sketchup. After importing, you add trees, vegetation, materials, people, weather and anything else you need to express the intention of your designs. Showing your model in the context of life-like objects allows you to let people experience how your design will feel once it is built.

Create viewpoints

Once you are done enhancing your model, you click a button to enter MyLumion.com mode. In this mode you can define several viewpoints in your scene. Later the customer or colleague can switch between these points to view the model from different angles.

Render the 360 panorama

With all desired viewpoints in place, you hit the render button to send your Lumion project to MyLumion.com. After providing your email address, Lumion will quickly render many images and combine them into 360 panoramas.

Upload to the cloud

Once the panoramas are automatically uploaded, Lumion presents you with a button to view the result in your browser. An email containing a link to the result is also sent to your email address, so you can view your project at a later time. You can also forward the link to other people so they can look around in the scene that you rendered.

Examples

Beta status

The beta status means MyLumion.com is still under development.

You can use it ‘as is’ but as long as it has a beta status it contains functionality which is still being tested and is in principle temporary and not guaranteed.

Please be aware of the following limitations:
– Limited to 7 projects online
– No Hyperlight
– No online configuration, login or password
– No effects
– Stops working in November 2015
– Uploaded project will remain online until January 2016

By using the beta version of MyLumion.com you help us better understand what we need to do to improve it.

Compatibility

MyLumion.com uses HTML5 and WebGL technology to create the interactive experience. In practice this means that most modern browsers, phones and tablets will be able to view projects interactively.
