Luxion KeyShot now features in select 3D Systems' Geomagic software.
Leading developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology, Luxion, has announced a new partnership with 3D printing stalwart 3D Systems.
The partnership is set to establish Luxion’s proprietary KeyShot technology as the standard rendering solution incorporated in selected 3D Systems’ Geomagic software packages.
KeyShot is the first real-time ray tracing application that uses a physically correct render engine based on scientific research on material representation and illumination. Designers will now be able to create stunning imagery with a simplified piece of technology that breaks down the complexity of producing photographic images from 3D data.
Calvin Hur, VP and GM of Geomagic Solutions at 3D Systems, said: “We are reimagining the engineer’s desktop with our complete line up of solutions for Scan-based Design, mechanical design and haptic-enabled freeform design. Engineers will love having KeyShot’s world-class rendering as part of their Geomagic software.”
The software has been optimised for more efficient 3D printing and users can export full-colour rendered models directly from Keyshot into the 3D Systems’ ProJet x60 line of Color Jet Printers for realistic models.
Claus Jensen, CEO and Co-founder at Luxion, added: “With 3D Systems’ seamless workflow from physically to digital print creating product visuals can now easily be done throughout that entire process. When users need visual representation of their scan, design, modifications or 3D print, KeyShot provides the quality they expect.”
KeyShot for Geomagic Design is available as an upgrade for $199 through 3D Systems and resellers with more software products set to feature KeyShot in the future.
