KeyShot® supports SolidWorks 2011®- Luxion

Luxion previews all new KeyShot importer and plugin for SolidWorks, demonstrates greatly enhanced import pipeline at SolidWorks World 2011.

San Antonio, TX, January 24 - Luxion, the leading developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology and makers of KeyShot, the first realtime ray tracing and global illumination program, will be demonstrating native support of SolidWorks 2011 ® as part of a greatly enhanced import pipeline for KeyShot at SolidWorks World 2011, held from January 23 through 26 in San Antonio, TX.

At its booth (#324) Luxion will show off the latest version of KeyShot 2 with the following additions and improvements

  • Native import of SolidWorks 2011 data and prior
  • Improved import pipeline that imports data faster than before
  • Complete preservation of the CAD model’s part and assembly structure
  • Support of additional file formats including CATIA ® V5

In addition, Luxion will preview an all new KeyShot plugin for SolidWorks. This plugin will greatly enhance the interoperability between the 2 applications by allowing users to establish an associative link between SolidWorks and KeyShot. This will allow users to push their design changes directly to KeyShot where it will automatically replace the existing model while preserving all previous material assignments and environment settings. 

“We are very excited that we can finally deliver the long awaited support for SolidWorks 2011 to our customers,” said Dr. Henrik Wann Jensen, Co-founder and Chief Scientist of Luxion. “The new importer along with the new plugin and the overall improved import pipeline will allow SolidWorks users to create amazing shots from their designs even faster.”

The support for SolidWorks 2011 is currently only available for PC, and will be included in KeyShot 2.2, scheduled to be released at the end of the month.
