Coming from engineering backgrounds the SimLab team noticed the low quality of visualization and sharing results done by engineers and architects, and the complexity of tools they used, that were not designed for them.
Bearing all this in mind SimLab Soft created a unified application, combining all the tools needed by engineers and architects to create top quality visualization with integrated sharing, and to provide it in the direct language they understand, naming the application SimLab Composer.
While SimLab Composer has direct CAD connections with most popular 3D Design applications and supports importing and exporting a large number of 3D file formats it needed fixes and updates to make the software run smoother and better. Hence, the new 6.1 version!
What is New in SimLab Composer 6.1?
New visual texture coordinates generation
Users bringing models from Mechanical CAD systems, will enjoy the new ability to visually drive the process of generating texture coordinates.
Updated material library
The material library was increased significantly with new top quality materials.
Adding roughness to glass
During rendering, the user will be able to control roughness for the glass material
The user can now add and control basic shapes. New shapes can be used in simulation, and for adding more bounces to the light while rendering.
FBX animation export
Animations in SimLab Composer (created by animation or simulation workbenches) can be exported in FBX, to be used in other applications or game engines like Unity and Unreal engine.
Supporting larger textures in 3D PDF
The user can enable exporting larger texture sizes to 3D PDF for top quality visualization
Interactive texture baking
The user will be able to view all baked objects in addition to the one(s) currently being baked to reduce the time needed to get perfect texture baking results.
Users buying a new license of SimLab Composer Pro, Mechanical or Ultimate during the month of September will receive a free license of the new JT importer/exporter. SimLab Composer 6.1 is available both on Windows & Mac and comes in English, German, French, Japanese, Italian and Korean languages.
