Edificius is the software that integrates Real Time Rendering and the BIM model to produce photorealistic renderings of architectural and construction projects in real time.

  • Experience architectural design by checking the results of your design choices in real time

  • Show the project to your client as it will be realized and try out different solutions together, all in real time

  • Get photorealistic renderings in real time and produce spectacular video presentations

Real Time Rendering integrated with the BIM model: change the way you design

Real Time Rendering completely changes the concept of architectural rendering.

For rendering software that are not integrated with the BIM model in real time, the resulting renderings remain a sort of beautification of the project with the addition of materials, objects and effects that have no interaction with the project itself.

Instead, with Edificius, furniture, lighting or environmental characterization, materials, colors and scenarios are inserted directly during the BIM modelling phase and are correctly represented in the project in plan view, cross-sections, axonometry and of course in Real Time Rendering.

Everything is perfectly and dynamically integrated respecting the true BIM philosophy.

The designer can verify design choices in real time; whenever a material, colour or object characteristics is changed, their representation in real time rendering is also updated, instantly.

A rendered image of the project is obtained over time with a simple click and a high definition video in a few minutes, instead of many days of processing.

BIM Video Studio: change the way you present your project

Edificius is also an extraordinary video editing tool. In fact, the BIM Video Studio environment offers a real virtual movie set with which to create videos and project presentation videos.

All the representation material can be easily assembled in a time-line by establishing the succession or overlapping of texts, static or dynamic images relating to the drawings, reels (set of photos that define an animated path within a scene) or photos.

The videos you create using the BIM Video Studio environment are dynamically linked to the BIM model; just like with floor plans, cross-sections, axonometry views and other representations of the 3D model, the video tracks will automatically update whenever the model is modified.

Professional renderings without having to wait endless hours and with extraordinary lighting effects

The real time rendering view of the BIM model can be frozen on any image to get a static photorealistic render in just a matter of a few seconds without waiting for the rendering process.

From the scene you can set various viewing parameters such as contrast, lights, effects or arrange lighting according to specific needs in order to achieve the desired final image. The professional and realistic result is guaranteed with the following features:

  • Light effects: Lens Flare (Lenticular effect) - Bloom (Glow) - Light Scattering (Auto light exposure) - Auto Exposure (Automatic adjustment of the scene brightness)
  • Post Process Effects: DOF (Variable Depthof Field) - Scene Contrast - Vignette Effect - Cel Shading (Hand-Drawn Comic Effect) - Contours - Pencil Drawing


An enormous set of resources to characterize your interior spaces...

With Edificius get free access to furniture objects and environments characterization directly from the online catalogue, enrich them with materials, colours and 3D textures and get extraordinary real-time results even when presenting internal environments!

The real time rendered model allows you to instantly get realistic materials with specular reflections and dynamic shadows generated by light points appropriately positioned in the project.

All these representations help to correctly evaluate even interior design solutions and allow you to create attractive presentations for your clients...

...and the representation of external spaces

Even when dealing with the design of gardens, green spaces, public and private parks, outdoor and urban spaces - whether connected or not to an architectural project - can be enhanced with very realistic and professional representations.
The BIM object library of Edificius and Edificius LAND has objects for furnishings and the arrangement of outdoor spaces. Other objects can be imported in standard formats and enriched with HD materials and colours (3D textures) for realistic rendering.
The archive is also completed with a wide variety of objects for representing plants and vegetation that are animated with wind effects when viewed in real time.
You can further enrich the scenes with:

  • the dynamic meteorological system (cloudiness, rain, dynamic solar lighting);
  • the fog effect ;
  • animations (people, water, vehicles, birds, trees, bushes and plants);
  • three-dimensional audio effects .

360° panoramic images in immersive virtual reality ready for Facebook™

Engage your customers in 360° by projecting them into a new reality: the one you designed for him!

Simply capture a 360-degree screenshot of the current scene and admire the result with a specific viewer.

This immersive representation allows the designer to fully express his style and the client to immerse himself in involving virtual environments to evaluate the result of his aesthetic and construction choices.

You can also publish the 360° images, created in the Real Time rendering environment, on Facebook.

This sharing function offers the possibility to show a portfolio of works that can be visited and to appreciate the details of the project that the client is interested in without having the constraints of classic photography.

An innovative solution to communicate your design ideas in a clearer manner, explore the various alternatives and favour a more participated and informed evaluation of the projects before their actual realization.
