Lumion is for architects who want a better way to work in SketchUp. With LiveSync you can immediately set up a live, real-time visualization of your SketchUp model. Change the CAD model’s shape and you’ll see these changes taking place, in real-time, in Lumion’s breathtaking, lifelike environment.


No more hunting around for the right effects. Gone are the days of meticulously balancing sliders. Once you dress up your 3D model with Lumion materials and objects, just click the Styles Button and select an interior or exterior style.

In an instant your design becomes a beautiful render with a carefully balanced effects combination.

Render right away, or personalize the style in minutes. Create a look that’s all your own with a workflow that’s faster than ever.

*Now with LiveSync*


Lumion is compatible with almost all 3D design software tools and offers seamless import of SketchUp files. It accepts both native .SKP as well as other common 3D file formats, such as COLLADA (.DAE) and .FBX.

The tutorial shows you how easy it is to import your SketchUp models into Lumion. It also shows how fast and simple it is to reload alterations.
