Lumion 9 feature spotlight: customizable 3D grasses and furry materials

Gardens, parks and lawns. Blankets, rugs and other textiles. See how the customizable 3D grasses and furry materials can help ground viewers to the reality of your design.


In Lumion 9 Pro, the new customizable 3D grass* and furry materials* can transport your audience right into the heart of your design. For sprawling lawns, gardens, parks and more, the 3D grass materials highlight the look and the “feeling” of your exterior landscapes, all while heightening beauty and providing a sense of the design’s real-life location.


The same goes for the new fur materials. Whether it’s a blanket, a rug, bedsheets or even a stuffed animal, such as a teddy bear, the new 3D fur material adds a softness and a charm that immediately communicates a feeling your audience is familiar with.


In this blog post, we’ll take you through the innovative new material features in Lumion 9 Pro — Customizable 3D Grass and Furry Materials  — and we’ll show how they can pull viewers into the world you’ve created while suspending their sense of disbelief.

No matter the intent of your render, the new 3D grass and fur materials can help convey the real-life atmosphere of a space and communicate the essential points of your design.

Lumion 9 feature spotlight: Real Skies and Atmospheric Rain and Snow

A combination of beautiful Real Skies, Sky Light 2 and atmospheric rain and snow heighten the “living” look of the environments surrounding your designs.


Location, location, location…

It may be an old, overused cliche but there’s definitely some truth to it in the architectural world. Buildings are inseparable from their locations, and when communicating your design to the outside world, making sure the viewer understands the design’s context is everything.

Something as simple as the look of the sky can act as an anchor, grounding you to the reality of your project’s environment. Weather such as rain and snow beautifully demonstrates how your design will endure through both climate and season.
