SpaceClaim Integrates KeyShot Photographic Rendering into Its 3D Direct Modeling Solutions

Partnership with Luxion ApS Enables Engineers to Turn 3D Models into Realistic Images Quickly and Easily.

Concord, MA : SpaceClaim, provider of 3D Direct Modeling solutions, today announced that Luxion’s KeyShot will be integrated with SpaceClaim products. KeyShot is an interactive raytracing and global illumination program that acts like a digital camera and works with any 3D digital data.

Engineers worldwide are leveraging the power and ease-of-use of SpaceClaim for concept modeling, the optimization of CAE workflows and simulation-driven product development. Often customers will leverage SpaceClaim in the bidding process and in discussions with their clients during the design process to make changes real-time. With KeyShot and SpaceClaim, engineers will be able to easily take their 3D designs and turn them into photographic images within minutes, further simplifying the design-to-final product process and enabling them to win more contract bids with truly compelling proposals.

“Our customers are creating and enhancing incredible products using SpaceClaim and we continue to receive feedback that they are saving up to 50% in time in design and model prep, leading to a shortened time-to-market,” said Bernie Buelow, Vice President of Corporate Marketing, SpaceClaim. “KeyShot is a valuable addition in driving design decisions and we look forward to working with Luxion as they continue to enhance their rendering software.”

SpaceClaim continues to experience market momentum as the Company’s solutions help customers gain a competitive edge. SpaceClaim works with any geometry and literally pays for itself in a matter of months. KeyShot is integrated with SpaceClaim 2009+ SP2, which is available at this time as well.

“SpaceClaim has advanced 3D direct modeling significantly, providing engineers with tools that streamline processes and enable the creation of more innovative end products,” said Henrik Wann Jensen, Chief Scientist, Luxion. “The integration of SpaceClaim and KeyShot takes those capabilities to the next step with realistic rendering and ‘marries’ two of the best products on the market today. We will work closely with SpaceClaim as we advance KeyShot further to meet the goals of our joint customers.”
