I got a chance to try the latest Enscape3D 2.4 update Web Standalone sharing feature this evening and was very impressed. It offers a no plug-in model interaction very similar to the full desktop Enscape application or the previous .exe packages. The big advantage is “no install” as although the package.exe’s worked well many environments prevent use of them. Creating the export is, typically Enscape, a simple button click and short wait (impressively short) while the model uploads. All the assets in the Revit file transfer so no concerns about losing custom materials etc.
The browser does have to be WebGL capable (so Chrome) and, here's where the tweaking comes in, will use whatever hardware the machine can offer. I tried it on a modest HP Compact running a 70 inch Sharp Touchscreen at work and it was ok, although a more powerful machine would be better. On my Surface Book 2 even with the Chrome>Advanced>System>Use Hardware Acceleration when available setting enabled Chrome only used the integrated graphics in the Clipboard Tablet. It runs Intel UHD 620, like many standard laptops, and was a bit choppy while fly/walk navigating but still very useable.
I had to go to Control Panel>Graphics Settings and force Chrome.exe to run in High Performance mode to get the best from the hardware.
That done, after a browser restart, the model responsiveness transformed for both rendering (of lighting changes) and fly/walk navigation. Task Manager confirmed the Book 2’s Nvidia GTX 1060 was doing its thing, soon further confirmed by the hiss of cooling fans spinning up!
