Patrick DuChene,
Owner of DuChene Design Solutions, LLC

"Not too long ago, I asked about 10 designers how long they thought Lumion would take to render this model I built, and the average answer was 20 to 30 minutes.

I said, 'Watch this,' put Lumion on the highest resolution, and it rendered in like 25 seconds. They said, 'Holy s***.'”
