The Hettema Group: Revolutionizing the Theme Park Design Process

In this session, Don Carson from The Hettema Group will review projects that use real-time rendering tools like Enscape in a new and non-traditional way -  as the previsualization tool for designing and presenting theme park attractions.

With his start at Walt Disney Imagineering working on guiding the design of Disney attractions, Don has often been asked on how to communicate the design concept to the finished product in theme parks.

Learn how The Hettema Group uses Enscape to communicate those concepts to the ones who ultimately build it, and how the implementation of Enscape in their design workflow lead to a change of how they work.
