Volumetric Fire

Cast a feeling of coziness and warmth to your interior and exterior renders with volumetric fire objects.

What’s New in Lumion 12

What items are in the library?

The library us huge, but most items are only found in the Pro version.

See Content Library Here 

Does Lumion work with my CAD software?

Lumion supports almost all modelling software such as ARCHLine.XP, Rhino3D, SketchUp, ArchiCAD, Revit, Vectorworks, BricsCAD, ARES, IronCAD, AutoCAD Architecture and many more. If you’re unsure, download the trial and check it out for yourself or ask us and we’ll check your model files for you.

How are your prices less?

We have made it a policy to be at least 5% less than if you were to purchase from the developers in Europe – Guaranteed.

Also, because we are an Australian company registered for GST, you get to claim the GST portion of the sale back (assuming you are a GST registered business), saving you a further 10%, so that’s a minimum saving of 15% and sometime due to our buying power we can offer even more.

What license options are available?

Lumion is available as a lifetime license of the version you buy at that moment (currently version 12) that will continue to run for as long as your PC and operating system will support it.

You can install it on more than one computer in your business and use it on any of those machines, but not at the same time.

You can add more ‘seats’ to your initial license to run multiple sessions at the same time. For example if you have 4 seats you can install on 10 machines but run on 4 machines at the same time.

You need to be connected to the internet to run the software as it checks your license ‘in the cloud’ when you start the software then releases the license when you close the software.

Does Lumion support remote desktop access?

Lumion 9.0 and later versions are supported on some virtual PC/remote desktop platforms. We’ve listed a few third party providers in the link below that offer virtual cloud desktop services.

Important: Not all virtual cloud desktop offerings can run Lumion; many of them do not meet Lumion’s hardware requirements. Always check if the virtual cloud desktop you are purchasing has hardware that matches Lumion’s System Requirements.

Can you supply Lumion outside Australia?

Sorry we can’t. We are exclusive Lumion distributors for Australia only. For other countries refer to the local point of contact for your region.

Can I on-sell my license Key?

General information about buying and selling Lumion License Keys

It’s not a problem to sell Lumion License Keys to other users if they’re no longer needed by you.

Important:
Act-3D and CAD International do not get involved and are not a party to the sale/purchase of the License Key. We cannot be held liable for any issues arising from either party not meeting the terms of the agreement they have reached in their sale and purchase arrangement.

For the buyer:
You are advised to get proof of ownership from the seller such as receipt for the original sale. 

We don’t get involved in the money transfer, so make sure to use a reputable company for that. You’ll need a valid receipt for the money transfer from the seller in order for us to help you with the transfer to your name.

If you require any administrative work to help gain proof of purchase and to transfer the license key then we charge a fee for that service.

In the event that the seller continues to use the License Key after the transfer, we would arrange to have that License Key revoked and issue a new License Key to the person who bought the License Key so there is a safety net in case of abuse.

For the seller:
When the sale is made, forward the License Key number and the name, address, company name etc of both the buyer and yourself as seller to us. We will then verify the details and facilitate the transfer of the License Key.

We do not authorize the sale or transfer of a License Key. We merely act on instructions from you to assist in the transfer of the License Key.

If the buyer does not transfer the money, we would revoke the License Key and then issue a new License Key to the seller so there is a safety net in case of abuse.

If you require any administrative work to help gain proof of purchase and transfer the license key we charge a fee for that service.
