With ARCHLine.XP LIVE, you can transform your BIM / CAD model into immersive 3D architectural visualization where people walk, soft wind is blowing through the trees, candle light flickers - for a real-time experience in rendering and animation.
ARCHLine.XP LIVE is easy to use and learn. Its power is rooted in the cutting-edge technology provided by the well-known Unreal Engine.
ARCHLine.XP LIVE is made especially for architects and interior designers. Turn your 3D design into immersive models, create high quality images, videos, and walkthroughs.
VISUALS IN AN INSTANT
Still images Your visuals are ready the moment you find the view you need. There is no rendering time, so send your images to your clients immediately.
Animations Create high quality, high resolution animated clips, and merge them into a single walkthrough without having to use 3rd party video editing software products. What's more, there is no need to wait for hours until your animation is ready, as they are made at an instant, and they are ready to be viewed on your computer, or any smart device.
Panorama 360 Take your client to where the action is, use 360 degree panoramic images when presenting your projects. Send your work to your clients, who can explore on their own devices, what you have created. No additional software needs to be installed for such an experience.
YOUR DESIGN SPEAKS FOR ITSELF
Lifelike materials Thanks to genuinely realistic and detailed materials, even the tiniest of details of your surfaces can be emphasized. Test countless variations and ideas, and find the one that really fits your style.
Fantastic lights Whether it's about the warm caress of the rising Sun, or the moody lights of an interior, there is no limit on your imagination. Set up intensity, color, temperature, and show your design in the best possible light.
Water surfaces Use dynamically moving water surfaces on pools, bathtubs, which ripple in the wind, to give an even more natural effect.
EFFECTS, BURSTING WITH LIFE
Animated surfaces Spice up your 3D surfaces with cool video content on a large screen TV or an animated advertisement in your design; that's all it takes to get stunning visuals.
Convincing effects Browse the LIVE library for ready to use effects, such as flames, candle light, chimney smoke, steam, etc. All it takes is a few effects, and any part of your design will spring to life.
True reflections Mirrors, large glass portals and many other reflective surfaces can be visualized with true reflections. You can customize the clarity and quality of reflections via simple sliders to reach the perfect illusion.
MOVEMENT, WHEREVER YOU LOOK
People ARCHLine.XP LIVE is shipped with ready-to-use high quality motion capture animated human assets to help increasing the realism of your visuals. You can draw animation paths for the human characters and they will start walking or running based on the selected animation or if you prefer, they can also start a conversation.
Moving vehicles and objects Place a vehicle in the model, draw a path and set up the movement speed. That's all you need to populate the streets of your visuals in a few steps. Of course, you can bring in 3D models from external sources, to add smart vacuums or other moving objects to your plans.
Animated surfaces Animating a surface material is just as easy as ABC. Set up the horizontal and/or vertical texture speed and you are done. Use this unique feature to create animated rollup advertisements, LED panels and more.
Foliage painter Plant detailed foliage around your models, even if you need to cover huge surfaces. Set up your painter to randomly generate a variety of shrubbery, trees and flowers over the area you need.
Backgrounds Ready to use high quality cylindrical backgrounds are available in the LIVE Library to enhance the realism of your model's surrounding in one click. The backgrounds are in various sizes designed to surround smaller and larger projects in urban or natural scenarios.
Weather Simulate and fine tune clouds, sunlight, fog, rain or snowfall. Just find the weather settings you need, and LIVE will make sure that the result of the chosen style is visible on your visuals in the shape of puddles, or even a sheet of snow cover.
LIVESYNC AND IMPORTS
SketchUp Working with SketchUp and LIVE is easy with the free ARCHLine.XP LIVE SektchUp plugin available for SketchUp Pro users. Simply model anything in SketchUp and use the Sync button to visualize the model in LIVE. Turn the model into real-time photorealistic visuals in minutes. Whenever the SketchUp model changes, just push the Sync button again to update the LIVE visual with the latest changes. It is that simple really!
ARCHLine.XP Working in ARCHLine.XP? Great news: track changes to architect and interior design plans with the LiveSync feature, which allows the changes made in the ARCHLine.XP design software to be synchronized with ARCHLine.XP LIVE archviz animation software with a single click.
Imports LIVE is able to read SKP, OBJ and FBX models, so you can enrich your visuals and extend your object library with even more content.
The latest release of ARCHLine.XP has the flexibility to support BIM project from beginning to end, from conceptual design to data-rich 3D model with detailed documents. You can create an immersive presentation experience with cutting-edge technologies such as PBR materials, artificial light color temperature, native Revit import enhancements, Microsoft OneDrive cloud support, and PDF 3D export.
Fast and efficient methods help design accuracy such as Slab layers with sloped and variable thickness, Wall layers and phases, fully customizable Sliding doors, new aligning features in 2D and 3D views.
Design Center new layout - The new layout shows all items in a category at once.
Welcome Screen - The dialog provides convenient access to recently opened files, starting new project and online knowledge base.
Status bar - The status bar includes new option Clean Screen to maximize the drawing area by hiding the ribbon, toolbars, and panels.
View tabs - View tabs provide access to all views in a minimal amount of space.
Sign in to ARCHLine.XP - Sign in to use ARCHLine.XP from anywhere. You can login with the username and password you use with your work or school account you associated with ARCHLine.XP. ARCHLine.XP remains activated as long as you're signed in.
Remaining Days - If you use trial software or subscription / non-profit, ARCHLine.XP displays in the top-right corner the number of days left in your trial/subscription/non-profit version.
ARCHLine.XP LT version with two skins - ARCHLine.XP LT version provides two types of Ribbon menu layouts: Classic may be more familiar to AutoCAD LT or ZWCAD/GStar users.
Core & Architectural Features:
Creating sliding doors in the Door Wizard - It is possible to create custom sliding doors using the Door Wizard command. With the new options, you can also make sliding doors running in front of and in the wall.
Stairs landing thickness change - ARCHLine.XP automatically calculates the default value for the landing thickness of the stairs. However, it is possible to override the thickness value by entering a different value.
Graphic list of stair steps - Stair steps cut list can be an aid in part layout, confirming key dimensions, and estimating sizing needs.
Slab with sloped AND variable thickness - ARCHLine.XP offers a new way to specify the slope slope, e.g. on a sidewalk or balcony where a natural slope must also be created with a layer of cement for drainage.
Wall layers and phases - You can fully customize the wall's appearance applying different phases to different wall layers.
Extended capabilities for Native Revit import - As a result of the development of the Import RVT function, the most important architectural elements keep their type and properties. The wall, slab, column, beam also appear in ARCHLine.XP as elements of the same type, with the same properties.
Export 3D PDF files - You can save and share 3D models to PDFs, the most popular file format in the documentation. You can adjust the rotation, magnification, rendering mode, lighting, background color, and visibility of each section using standard Adobe Reader controls.
Creating dimensions all at once between temporary line intersection points - By drawing a temporary line, the program creates dimensions between the intersection of the line and the drawing elements.
Align elements in 2D and 3D views - The manual solution so far is too time consuming and not accurate at all. Use the Alignment tool to specify the exact location of objects in seconds. This tool offers a number of options for sorting objects as you like. Can be used in both 2D and 3D views.
Equal distances - In the design, elements often need to be spaced evenly. These commands help you accurately divide the space between the selected items.
Multiple copying new options - ARCHLine.XP supports multiple copying of selected items in several ways such as along one axis (lock to X,Y or Z) and along a path.
Project cleaner - A simple and effective tool to reduce the size of project files. You can remove all unnecessary and unwanted items from your project in one step. This tool manages all the added files, objects, styles, etc. of the project.
Road section profile with materials - You can specify different materials for different parts of the road section (eg pavement, green area, road, etc.). This new feature allows you to create more complex and lifelike roads in the field without having to make changes later.
Editable roof markers - Several improvements were made to roof reference markers . New markers help to edit roof directly:
Single roof pitch
Main slope R =
Overhang L =
Microsoft OneDrive cloud support - From 2022 ARCHLine.XP supports both cloud storage service Google Drive, and OneDrive.
Plot layout - New options in Plot layout - control multiple buildings with floors and wall fill pattern.
Plot new option: Upside down - On some plotting devices the margin is different from top to bottom and it is not necessary to calculate the left-hand binding margin for every drawing.
Interior Design Features:
PBR Materials - An entirely new material resource is available to display better materials. PBR materials open a new world to realism. PBR means Physically Based Rendering and allows to simulate existing materials as realistic as possible under all lighting conditions.
Color temperature - You can also specify a color temperature in artificial light. By adjusting the light temperature, you can achieve a much more real effect than changing the color of the light. The color temperature can be adjusted between 1000 K and 10000 K to simulate the light from today’s bulbs.
Creating custom ceiling with lights - False ceiling is one of the most complex element in modern home design. You can completely customize the look of your ceiling by adding so-called recesses and attachments to accommodate hidden LED lighting.
Tags: Cabinet parts - Tag extension so that the number of pieces and the name of the parts appear in two columns.
Cabinet explosion with part numbers - You can place an automatically created exploded view of the cabinets with numbered parts.
