Luxion delivers KeyShot 2.1 with support of native Solid Edge data.
Irvine, California, November 16, 2010 - Luxion, the leading developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology and makers of KeyShot™, the first realtime ray tracing and global illumination program, today announced that KeyShot 2.1 supports native data import from Solid Edge ST3 and prior. This is a direct result of Luxion's acceptance to the Siemens Solution Partner Program. KeyShot 2.1 with Solid Edge® software support is available for immediate download and purchase at www.keyshot.com.
"We are excited that we can now offer native support for Solid Edge data to our joint customer base," says Dr. Henrik Wann Jensen, Chief Scientist and co-founder of Luxion. "Implementing support for Solid Edge was very straight forward. The Siemens PLM Software team was extremely helpful throughout the development process.
