AIrBIMPRO2 is integrated in Edificius, Edificius LAND and Edificius MEP

With the upgrade to new AMD Radeon ProRender 2.0 Path Tracer Rendering Engine, Edificius allows you to be even more creative and productive.

AIrBIMPRO2 has many improvements over the previous version of AIrBIM:

  • Overall performance improvements
  • Optimization of GPU memory usage
  • Added support for hardware accelerated ray tracing via OpenCL™
  • More efficient PBR RayTracing
  • New dynamic workload balancing between CPU+GPU
  • New AI-Denoising technology
  • Adaptive Super-sampling
  • Hyper-realistic lighting

Although AIrBIMPRO2 is HW independent, best performance can be reached when using AMD RDNA™ and AMD RDNA™ 2 GPU architectures.

Make the most of your PC's performance to produce high resolution renders of large sized architectural projects

The rendering software AIrBIMPRO2 - integrated in Edificius - uses and balances the computing capabilities of multiple GPUs and CPUs in the same system.

The "Memory Sharing" function allows the continuous and dynamic load balancing of your hardware resources during the rendering process.

Balance CPU and GPU usage efficiently to obtain high image quality renderings even with very complex scenes.

The main advantage is that your computer’s performance is drastically improved due to an enhanced memory management and workload balancing feature.

Not only extra realism, but also improved performance with AIrBIMpro2 supporting 'hardware-accelerated rendering when used with AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series graphics cards based on RDNA™ 2 architecture. In fact, when rendering with both AMD CPUs and GPUs, renders can now reach up to 47% in increased speed compared to rendering on the GPU alone.

Rendering with Artificial Intelligence (AI) | Edificius+AIrBIM | ACCA software

The highest quality for your architectural renderings at super-fast speed!

With the rendering software AIrBIMPRO2, having to wait hours to get a professional high quality rendering is now a thing of the past.

The software uses Artificial Intelligence (Machine Learning Denoiser) to "remove" noise from a partially rendered image and drastically reduce processing time.

The Machine Learning Denoiser is capable of comparing noisy images with their completely processed counterparts and reconstruct the final render much faster than before and automatically.

This means that there’s no need to trace all the light rays in the scene with hundreds or thousands of render passes: Artificial Intelligence takes care of the whole image optimization process by itself.

Rendering Settings with Artificial Intelligence (AI) | Edificius+AIrBIM | ACCA software

You don't need to be an ArchViz expert... With Machine Learning denoising, you'll always get physically accurate images for your architectural renderings!

Thanks to the AI-denoising, you'll always get the best lighting conditions and super-fast performance for your renderings...

Machine Learning Denoising in AIrBIMPRO2 allows you to find the optimal rendering quality automatically without needing to play around with tedious settings to speed up the rendering process. A common problem when using older ray tracing software.

In Edificius AIrBIMPRO2, the Artificial Intelligence algorithm, automatically identifies the most efficient route and the ideal settings to produce the highest quality rendering for your scene and in the quickest manner possible.

The rendering software AIrBIMPRO2 is so advanced and powerful that it allows you to change essential lighting settings "in-process" while the rendering is still progressing and also see those changes in real time in the preview window or in 3D viewport.

Physically Based Rendering | Edificius+AIrBIM | ACCA software

Get photorealistic renderings thanks to PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials

With the rendering software AIrBIMPRO2 your rendering output quality becomes photo-realistic even with PC hardware normally used by technicians who deal with architectural, structural and plant design aspects, etc.

The software produces highly-realistic renderings thanks to fast iterative algorithms that calculate the amount of light reflected and PBR (Physically Based rendering) materials available in the online library provided with Edificius AIrBIMPRO2 .

A library packed with thousands of PBR materials that give that expert touch to your renders and that allow the rendering engine to correctly calculate the amount of light reflected or absorbed from the materials and its direction.

PBR is a rendering method based on the physical characteristics of a material.

To get a realistic representation of the physical characteristics of a material a normal 2D texture isn’t enough.

This is why the materials that use the PBR methodology are represented by different maps (textures) that tell the engine shader how simulate all the lighting properties that a given material assumes with respect to its real world behaviour in relation to light refraction, reflection, absorption, etc.

Take a 360° panorama HDR photo and automatically get a hyper-realistic rendering with the same lighting conditions

Do you want to render an architectural project (interior or exterior) by placing it in a specific location or represent it at a specific time of the day or year?

With Edificius AIrBIMPRO2 you can use a 360° HDR (High Dynamic Range) Pano photo of where your project will be located and use it as a background for your rendering.

Thanks to IBL technology (Image-based lighting) Edificius AIrBIMPRO2 sets the lighting conditions for you with a lighting level coming directly from the 360° panorama photo.

The architectural rendering software AIrBIMPRO2 - integrated in Edificius - offers a large archive of 360º backgrounds organized according to different climatic conditions.

The 360° backgrounds make it very easy to set all the rendering parameters and simulate any kind of lighting scenario (winter, summer, in a Nordic country) by simply selecting or loading a HDR Pano-background.

Photo editing and photo insertion | Edificius+AIrBIM | ACCA software

Photo insertion and photo retouching to see the project realized in its natural context

To insert and simulate the project in its real context, all you need is a simple photo of the site, normally including a reference building to detect the photo’s perspective, and then align the 3D model of your project to the photo. The software allows you to realistically evaluate how the project adapts to the context in a simple and fast way by producing a rendered image of the scene.

The model is graphically integrated into the photo's perspective by adjusting the vanishing lines, the visibility settings, transparency level, the time of day for correct shadow simulations and the final image rendering settings. Additional photo retouching features allow you to obtain a complete and professional result with just one application.

Depth of field | Edificius+AIrBIM | ACCA software

Depth of field to highlight details of the project...

Using a depth of field effect, you can change the image focus point to highlight specific design or project details. Change the focal distance and f/stop values during the rendering process.

Volumetric fog | Edificius+AIrBIM | ACCA software

Volumetric fog for photographic shot effects

With the Volumetric Fog or Light Scattering option, easily reproduce the effects of morning mist across the landscape or of dust suspended in the air for your interior design images... typical professional photography at your fingertips.
