“I included D5 in our Campus Digital program, which allows students to try things out and upskill themselves. Working on rendered 3D models encourages them to think more about all the areas of their designs. The earlier we start to work with these tools, the better our results can be and the faster we can become good architects and planners."

What's the difference between D5 Render Pro and Educational license?

D5 for Education is free of charge, and offers all the features and assets exclusive to D5 Pro (excluding AI updates post 2.7). You can output renderings without any watermarks. It is a fixed-seat license, which means your Edu account is limited to only one particular computer. Please note that the D5 educational license is only available for educational and research purposes.
