Luxology LLC, an independent technology company developing modern 3D content creation software this week announced that its Nexus® rendering technology is now powering PhotoView 360 by SolidWorks Corporation. The software is bundled with SolidWorks Premium and Professional 2009 editions.
Nexus rendering technology enables greater levels of interactivity and physically-based lighting. It also includes a library of realistic surface appearances and a collection of studio quality lighting environments.
“PhotoView 360 is more than a fast renderer, it is an intuitive tool for deciding how different parts of a 3D model should look in the real world and getting a usable image with just the right lighting and camera angle in a matter of minutes,” said Brad Peebler, president of Luxology. “The incredibly complex and sophisticated models that came from SolidWorks required us to optimize our Nexus rendering engine to new levels of efficiency.”
“Our primary goal in developing PhotoView 360 was to allow our customers to get to a great looking image with minimum effort and expertise,” said Austin O’Malley, CTO at Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corp. “Luxology’s Nexus technology has allowed us to deliver a product to our customers that removes a lot of the mystery in rendering and delivers very rapid results.”
