Most of the product development companies, irrespective of the CAD software, always face difficulties in creating images, animations etc for marketing, brand building, printing, advertising etc. The technical geometry which have tremendous amount of data related to engineering will not suite the requirements.
The generic softwares available in the market, which are basically used by animators and artists, will be too cumbersome for ordinary engineers. Luxion understand this difficulty and created products that are very easy to use by non-artists, but give images and animations, which can outperform those softwares. This is where the outperforming Keyshot comes into picture. The ultrafast, extremely easy to use, amazing results of Keyshot help engineers to compete with artists and make the impact of their creations.
Keyshot is a CPU based standalone 3D rendering and animation software. It takes 3D data from different softwares like Creo, Pro/ENGINEER, Soldiworks, Solidedge, Rhinoceros, Sketchup, 3DS Max, Catia, AutoCAD, Alias, Maya, UG NX, Collada, etc… and other neutral file formats like Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES), Standard for the Exchange of Product model data (STEP), JT, OBJ, Parasolid, Filmbox (FBX), STereoLithography (STL) etc.. Also it have plugins with most of these software, so that keyshot can be initiated within that software.
The realtime rendering using the CPU instead of GPU (Graphic Processing Unit or simply Graphics Card) helps users to understand what exactly happens when we do some changes. The more the processing power or the processors, the results are faster. It doesn’t require any graphics cards or dedicated drivers. Also large assemblies with thousands of parts can be opened in keyshot, as it depends only on RAM and not graphics card.
The user interface is so easy, so that the user doesn’t require any specialized expertise to user the software. It basically has six main buttons rather than hundreds of parameters, options, sliders, and adjustments, as in traditional programs. So it makes the software great for Industrial designers, Mechanical engineers, Marketing professionals, Photographers, CG Experts etc. Keyshot have the only rendering engine certified by International Commission on Illumination (CIE). It uses scientifically accurate materials and real world lighting. We can get very accurate pictures and animations in few seconds. Also you have all the options to set the 3D scene, camera positioning, camera zooming etc.
How it works?
It basically have six basic steps
Step 1: Import your 3D model (image)
Step 2: Paint your model (image)
Step 3: Choose your lighting (image)
Step 4: Adjust your camera (image)
Step 5: Adjust your background (image)
Step 6: Enjoy the perfect picture (image)
