Hi there,

I have been engaged in writing a dissertation at the University of Manchester which evaluates the emergent use of interactive models in architecture since the beginning of janurary. Only now have I stumbled across Lumion.

I am very impressed by the software's capabilities. After studying game engines such as Unity and Quest3D I am not suprised this is the brain child of the latter, I have to admit I am very impressed.

As part of my dissertation which is due in 2 months time I am evaluating current examples of interactive models, these have mostly been bespoke examples made in Unity 3D, the CryEngine and one or two others.

What I am curious about in Lumion is the ability to use the tool not just for marketing purposes, but also as a design tool.

It would be great to hear from the community about their experiences with Lumion, or thoughts on using 3D interactive models in the process of design in architecture!

I would also love to look at the product 'hands-on', I would be very grateful if I could obtain an education license

Anyways, thank you for reading

Steve   :)

I think if you want to require an Education license Lumion officials prefer you to contact them directly via email as you can read from this post:

Also I guess you can try the demo available to download here to have feel about Lumion before you use it as your reference for your dissertation.
