ARTISAN is the perfect rendering solution for busy designers who want to easily create images to speed up the design and decision-making process. A wide range of pre-set Materials and Lighting Setups plus the ability to create your own realistic Materials make ARTISAN a pleasure to use.


Available with a direct connection to a number of CAD systems, ARTISAN, is also available in stand-alone mode allowing you and your client to explore design alternatives.

So, what can I do with ARTISAN?

  • Easily create high-quality images of your model Read More

    No need to become a rendering 'expert'.  Create images without needing to learn the complex parameters required by some other products.

    Create superb rendered images with the minimum of effort.  A comprehensive palette of Materials, Backgrounds and Lighting Schemes make image creation a simple task.  Everything is drag-and-drop and, coupled with a highly interactive real-time display in which to navigate, you'll be able to compose the perfect shot to show your design off to its best advantage.

  • Capture your ideas as ARTISAN SnapShots Read More

    Save your finished design ideas in a 'SnapShot' or use them for convenient 'work-in-progress' points. 

    Capture the changes you have made in ARTISAN with a single click as a SnapShot, which records everything you have put into the scene. There's no limit to the number of SnapShots and design combinations you can save allowing you to build your presentation as well as to go back to earlier ideas.

    When the model changes, simply re-render all of the SnapShots again with a single click to view those ideas with the new model. 

  • Produce more images in less time with ARTISAN Network Read More

    Use any other machines on your network by sharing out the rendering work.

    Artisan Network lets you use the full power of your network by sharing out the renders to be created and get the job done in a fraction of the time.

    Rendering SnapShots has never been faster, plus, you'll be able to continue on your designs without delay. As always, we've made it easy for you, with our intuitive render monitor that lets you track and prioritise your render tasks across your network. Whether you work for a small design agency or a big corporation, take advantage of this great new feature; our handy bundles of 5 licences are available from our Artisan Resellers now.

  • Select your Materials, Background and Lighting Scheme Read More

    Drag, drop and edit the components that will make your scene come alive.

    Materials are fundamental to creating a good image and ARTISAN comes with a wide range as well as the building blocks for you to easily create and share your own Material archives.  We're adding to the list continually and will begin sharing new archives via our web-site and other forums. 

  • Explore your model with real-time navigation Read More

    Explore your model as you've never seen it before with ARTISAN's real-time navigation.
