How to use Allplan with Lumion
There are two ways to set up a fluid, reliable workflow between your Allplan project and Lumion.
Because of Lumion’s sweeping compatibility, you can simply export a 3D model from Allplan and then import that model into Lumion. When you make changes to the model in Allplan, you can simply hit the re-import button for seamless feedback and revision. Read here for the full import guidelines for Allplan.
The other option is to set up a real-time connection using Lumion LiveSync.
With Lumion, we can finally show clients not only what the place is going to look like, but also what it will feel like.
