KeyShot, Solid Edge Plug-in Available

Category: News
Irvine, CA — Luxion, makers of KeyShot and a developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology, has rolled out a custom-developed plug-in that tightly integrates KeyShot with Siemens PLM Software’s Solid Edge software, making it a preferred rendering solution for users of Solid Edge.

This plug-in is available free of charge from the KeyShot website.

With KeyShot, Solid Edge users now have the option to increase the quality of their photorealistic 3D renderings, animations and interactive visuals used in communicating concepts, delivering internal presentations, developing digital prototyping and creating sales or marketing visuals. The integration allows KeyShot to be launched directly from the Solid Edge interface, automatically sending both the design and all the assigned material appearances to KeyShot.

Through the speed of KeyShot's real-time ray-tracing interface, further refinement of material assignments and lighting is quickly accomplished, and the changes are immediately displayed to the user. The plug-in implements LiveLinking, which allows users to integrate KeyShot deeply into the product development process by pushing any changes to the Solid Edge design directly to KeyShot without losing any of the material assignments, animations, lighting and camera settings. This is the tightest integration of KeyShot available in the 3D CAD software market.  This integration enables users to save time and improves the efficiency of designers, engineers and others creating 3D visuals.

Keyshot

Luxion and Siemens PLM Software integrate KeyShot with Solid Edge to allow faster creation of 3D visuals.

The integration with KeyShot also allows users to transfer material assignments over to KeyShot for further development and for the creation of KeyShot animations or KeyShotVR's, an interactive visual to present models on browsers or mobile devices. The plug-in is available free of charge from the KeyShot website at www.keyshot.com/plugins.
