Irvine, California June 19th, 2014 - Luxion, makers of KeyShot® and the leading developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology, is pleased to announce, from this year’s Siemens PLM Connection Conference, KeyShot integration for the users of the Siemens NX™ software. KeyShot integration with NX is a plugin that provides direct transfer of NX models to KeyShot and includes LiveLinking to capture updates in geometry.
Luxion continues to expand the integration of 3D modeling and surfacing software with KeyShot, building on the widest support of 3D file formats across any 3D rendering and animation software. Users of Siemens NX now have the option to import their models into KeyShot from NX with the transfer of all assembly structure, color information and camera views. A streamlined workflow is maintained across the interfaces with the option to send any model changes made to the NX model directly to KeyShot through Luxion's LiveLinking™ technology, without the need to re-apply materials or redo animations.
With KeyShot 5, NX users also gain the option of importing their models as NURBS geometry for smoother curves and edges and the automatic instancing of patterned components—features that allow NX users to go from modeling to creating photorealistic 3D renderings, animations and interactive visuals with more speed and flexibility than ever before.
"We are strongly focused on bringing KeyShot to more 3D professionals", said Claus Wann Jensen, CEO and Co-founder at Luxion. "With KeyShot integration with NX, NX users gain the integration they desire with more flexibility in creating visuals for the product development process, from concept through marketing. We see it happening already and are proud to be working closely with our customers to bring the next level of seamless integration between platforms."
