Lumion utilizes an array of patented technology to deliver 3D renders that continue to set the bar in the spheres of architecture, engineering and construction

Sky Light 2 and Real Skies

Instant, wondrous skies to take your breath away. With 44 Real Skies in Lumion 10, it takes a single click to immerse your design in the blues of a summer day, the black-grey suspense of a coming storm or the serenity of a twilight afterglow. (*Real Skies are Pro Only)


Glass is widely used in architecture and good visualizations require that it is rendered accurately. PureGlass® technology gives you access to transparent, translucent or frosted glass that looks more compelling and realistic than ever.

Speedray™ Reflections

Without good reflections it is impossible to create good looking glass, water, marble, wood or metal surfaces. Materials come to life with realistic reflections. Speedray™ Reflections offer the opportunity to massively improve image quality with little extra render time.

What’s New

Lumion’s improved scene-building workflow makes it easier and faster than ever to access the vast content library, fine-tune effects and add the right contextual elements and details to your render.

Volumetric spotlights effect

The new volumetric spotlight effect lets you cast a visible beam of light throughout your scene, adding atmosphere and dimension for a beautiful, cinematic ambiance. With a wide range of applications, you can use the volumetric spotlights effect to illuminate interiors, exteriors and even pools, giving spaces more depth and realism.

Surface Decals

Give your visualizations a touch of character, style and personality with 142 new surface decals. In just a click, you’ll transform surfaces with imperfections, wall art, exposed brick, moss, chalk drawings, paint, road markings and much more. You have a wide range of tools to show surface imperfections and highlight textures like never before.


Lumion fits right into your current architecture workflows and practices, from the very first sketches of form and shape to the final creation of your design documentation.

Custom IES spotlights

With the new custom IES spotlights in Lumion 11, simply upload Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) lighting profiles to recreate the exact lighting arrangement you need, illuminating the best parts of your project.

RAL color picker

Lumion 11 now features a RAL color picker to make color selection easier by accurately connecting it to the European color standard, for better integration and alignment with real-world application.

Measuring tools

Lumion’s new measuring tools help you make quick measurement checks without going back to your modeling software. On-screen tools improve your workflow when verifying distances to ensure the precision & scale of your model.

Merge scenes

A great tool for collaboration is the ability to merge content from a scene file with your current scene. This feature is essential for people working in teams because it allows you to work on a single scene with multiple people.
