Luxion’s KeyShot Chosen as New Rendering Solution for Latest Release of Siemens’ Solid Edge Software

Irvine, California - May 14, 2014 - Luxion, makers of KeyShot® and a leading developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology, today announced that Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software business has chosen Luxion’s KeyShot as its new rendering solution for Solid Edge® software, its mainstream computer-aided design (CAD) solution. KeyShot for Solid Edge, which will be bundled and licensed with the latest release of Solid Edge, Solid Edge ST7, will help  users quickly and easily create rich, 3D visuals. Solid Edge ST7 users will be able to experience KeyShot’s accurate materials, real world lighting and simple workflow for all their visualization needs. KeyShot for Solid Edge will replace the previously available rendering solution.
Even though KeyShot for Solid Edge is bundled with Solid Edge ST7, both applications remain separate. This will allow users to continue to refine their designs, while images and animations are rendered in KeyShot. It is a unique approach that provides concurrent modeling and rendering  to deliver a more efficient workflow, saving time for designers, engineers and others creating 3D visual content.

"Providing the best quality experience for our users is our highest priority,” said Dan Staples, Vice President, Solid Edge Product Development, Siemens PLM Software. “Providing KeyShot with Solid Edge meets our commitment to quality and gives users a fast and easy to use solution for creating high-quality, 3D visuals.”
"Today marks an important milestone for users of Solid Edge in the creation of 3D visuals,” said Thomas Teger, Vice President of Products and Strategy at Luxion. "KeyShot for Solid Edge provides users the most accurate material appearances and lighting to deliver amazing images of their design within a matter of minutes."
The partnership between Luxion and Siemens PLM Software first brought users the plugin connecting KeyShot with Solid Edge, allowing them to continue working on a design, while sending model updates to KeyShot through Luxion’s LiveLinkingTM technology. The ability to assign materials directly within Solid Edge immediately increased the quality of product visuals and the speed at which photorealistic 3D renderings could be created.

The new KeyShot for Solid Edge is delivered as a part of Solid Edge ST7. For more information on the new rendering options coming to Solid Edge, please visit
