This new integration allows users to generate photographic images and animations of their designs quickly with LiveLinking between Evolve and KeyShot that keeps the model updated, speeds design and avoids costly rework of design changes throughout the entire design process, the companies say.
Once models are transferred, users can apply scientifically accurate materials, real-world lighting, and animations through simple drag-and-drop operations while seeing the results in real-time. Additional integration of Luxion’s LiveLinking technology allows users to continue making changes to the model in Evolve and automatically update the geometry in KeyShot without the need to re-apply materials, lighting, animations or camera views.
“The integration of LiveLinking with Evolve is extremely valuable to our customers who use KeyShot,” said Darren Chilton, program manager, solidThinking. “The LiveLinking feature allows our users to work more efficiently and increase their productivity.”
“The integration between Evolve and KeyShot complement each other beautifully,” said Thomas Teger, vice president of products and strategy at Luxion. “Both can be used on either Mac or PC, and both harness a design workflow that allows faster creation of 3D visuals from design conceptualization through manufacturing and development of images for sales and marketing.”
