Kubotek Partners with Luxion to Integrate KeyShot for Photographic Image Creation

MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 15, 2010 — Kubotek USA announces that Luxion’s rendering application, KeyShot™ can now be used directly from its KeyCreator 3D direct modeling software. This integration is made possible by a partnership between the two companies; Kubotek will also be able to distribute KeyShot within the Americas. The agreement will further enhance the speed and flexibility for designers and engineers to not only create 3D models with KeyCreator, but to then use those models to create photographic images. Thanks to KeyShot, design data can be transferred quickly with the simple push of a button, and within minutes photographic images are ready for use in design, engineering, design review and marketing.

KeyShot is an interactive ray-tracing and global illumination program developed by Luxion that breaks down the complexity of creating photographic images from 3D models. KeyShot is the new name for the successful HyperShot software, the first interactive ray-tracing and global illumination program. Combined with its ease of use, KeyShot gives anybody involved with 3D data the ability to create photographic images in a matter of minutes.

Kubotek USA has developed a plug-in for KeyShot which allows for seamless integration of the two technologies. By combining the flexible, direct modeling 3D CAD technology of KeyCreator with such a simple and intuitive, real-time rendering software, Kubotek customers will be able to bring their CAD data to life quickly.

“This agreement gives KeyCreator customers the best 3D direct modeler combined with world class real-time photorealistic rendering solution,” said John Reis, Product Manager for ID and Surfacing Solutions, Kubotek. “The two packages give our customers unmatched ease of use, flexibility and precision that they need.”

Henrik Wann Jensen, Chief Scientist of Luxion, said, “The combination of KeyCreator and KeyShot results in a world class toolset for anyone interested in creating the highest quality photorealistic images of complex 3D data in a matter of minutes, without the need for specialized hardware.”

From now until June 30, 2010, Kubotek is offering 15% off the price of KeyShot. Call or visit Kubotek USA on the web for additional information on this offer.
