Further new features in the udpate
You can find further functional enhancements directly in the software under “What’s new in ReluxDesktop?” Tip: try the real-time renderer with the new project examples!!

Thanks to our members, the ReluxDesktop software is free of charge for everyone. With a ReluxThirdParty licence, it is also possible to plan with products from non-RELUX members.

We hope we’ve made your day 😊

News at a glance

Real-time interaction

Dive into your visualisation and have the ability to navigate through the scene using a game controller. This transforms your project into an immersive experience.

In the RELUX view, both 3D objects and lights are adjustable in real time, with the changes being displayed in a separate window. Enhance your objects with textures, resulting in photorealistic visualisations.

Seamless integration
The real-time renderer is accessible directly via a ribbon in ReluxDesktop labelled “Real-time rendering.” It offers a wide range of options for customising your view, including the ability to switch between daylight and artificial light, as well as adjust the cloud cover density for softer shading. The time of day is also adjustable, which offers the evaluation of visual lighting effects alongside the data in ReluxDesktop. Watch the tutorial video for more details.

Exports for output
Capture visualisations directly in ReluxDesktop and use them in your outputs. Impress your clients with stunning renderings of your Relux project.

Enscape has been serving the AEC industry for many years with its unique real-time technology, revolutionising workflows for thousands of architecture and design professionals and bringing immersive presentations to their clients. Lighting planning is a crucial part of many architectural design projects. With the help of Relux’s software, designers can now visualise lighting at a whole new level."

Christian Lang
CEO, Chaos
"We are very pleased to announce our collaboration with Chaos, a leading 3D visualisation company. Designers and architects around the world use powerful Chaos tools every day. By integrating Enscape into ReluxDesktop, we can now offer our customers integrated real-time visualisation capabilities.
Relux provides its planners with the rendering engine in ReluxDesktop free of charge. Instead of expanding the existing renderer, we decided to strengthen both our businesses and provide our planners with the best renderer to date, today."
