  • Create more images in less time with Artisan Network Rendering Read More

    Why waste time rendering on just one machine, when you can now render at an unbelievable speed across your full network.

    Artisan Network lets you utilise the full power of your network, no matter how big or small. Rendering SnapShots has never been faster, plus, you'll be able to continue on your designs without delay, as power intensive render tasks are sent to other machines! As always, we've made it easy for you, with our intuitive render monitor that lets you track and prioritise your render tasks across your network. Whether you work for a small design agency or a big corporation, take advantage of this great new feature; our handy bundles of 5 licences are available from our Artisan Resellers now.

  • Why Import and Export? Access Artisan from your CAD app Read More

    There's no need to import and export your models as Artisan does that for you.

    Once connected the Artisan button will appear in your CAD system; simply click the button and the model will automatically load in Artisan and you can start visualising straight away. Plus, with this handy feature, it is much easier to visualise your model at every stage of the design process; move back and forth between your CAD system and Artisan with no fuss. Just another way to make your working day easier with Artisan, you’ll wonder how you ever coped without it!

  • Rendering is effortless with SnapShots Read More

    The unique Artisan SnapShots function lets you capture all of your ideas with a click of a button.

    It really is that simple; create more variations than you’ve had hot dinners. Change your wall from brown to grey to terracotta bricks, clicking the SnapShot button after each change; Artisan will save these SnapShots and then you only have to render your favourites later. SnapShots let you experiment with your designs, and record your on-the-spot design changes easily; you’ll never have to repeat a design as you can revisit the SnapShot and continue working with no delays. Let’s face it we all know that saving time means saving money.

  • Find the best angle with real-time navigation Read More

    Move around your model in Artisan to see it from every angle.

    They say that a picture paints a thousand words, well what if that picture was 3D and could be viewed from every angle? Artisan lets you view your model from every angle in real-time; it’s great for prototyping as you’ll get a good idea of how your rendered model will look, before you have to click the render button. You can even move inside your model, as well as around, so you can see the interior and exterior of the house you’re designing and capture the best angles using SnapShots.
