Luxion Partnership Brings Mold-Tech Textures to KeyShot

Irvine, California, July 9th, 2013 - Luxion, a leading developer of advanced rendering, animation and lighting technology and maker of Keyshot® the first real-time ray tracing and global illumination program, in partnership with Mold-Tech, a Standex Engraving Group company and leader in texturizing and engraving in the automotive, plastics and consumer product industries, is pleased to announce an exclusive partnership that brings Mold-Tech textures to KeyShot.

First available within KeyShot 4, Mold-Tech textures deliver realism and accuracy for a variety of textured appearances. As with all the materials, colors and other textures inside KeyShot, Mold-Tech textures are applied as part of a new Mold-Tech material via the KeyShot Library with a simple drag-and-drop of the texture onto the object. All updates are seen in real time with options available in the Mold-Tech material properties to change color, roughness, scale and depth of the grain. Additionally, in an industry first, all patterns scale accurately with the size of the model.

“Mold-Tech is pleased to be collaborating with Luxion to provide the design community with advanced 3D rendering of select Mold-Tech patterns which are part of our extensive Mold-Tech library.” Say Bill Meike, Mold-Tech Director of Sales, “We look forward to enhancing the experience and capabilities of designers when considering creative texture designs as a cosmetic value or a functional property.” 

"Luxion is proud to have KeyShot as the only source for accurate representation of Mold-Tech textures inside a rendering application," says Henrik Wann Jensen, Chief Scientist at Luxion, "With hundreds of textures and all the options to refine the appearance, KeyShot brings a level of realism to product visuals that can’t be matched."

Around twenty examples of Mold-Tech  materials are provided in all version of KeyShot 4, with more textures available at The library of Mold-Tech materials will be updated on a regular basis.
