Single-click transfer of data with instant updates improve visualization without changing the IronCAD workflow.
Luxion and IronCAD have released an integration between IronCAD and Keyshot, allowing for single-click transfer of IronCAD design data into KeyShot along with the ability to keep model geometry updated to streamline the 3D visual creation process.
The integration uses Luxion’s LiveLinking technology, allowing IronCAD users to develop a design within IronCAD, export the data to KeyShot, maintaining assembly structure and all appearances, while continuing to work on the design inside IronCAD. As the design development proceeds, the vendors say users can select to update the model inside KeyShot from the IronCAD interface with the click of a button without disrupting previous applied materials, views or animations set up within KeyShot.
With the installation of the 2014 or later versions of the IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite of products, users can launch KeyShot directly from the IronCAD interface without the need to export to another file format. Options include the ability to export the IronCAD model directly into KeyShot, update the model within KeyShot and export a KeyShot .bip file without KeyShot installed. Color assignments at the part and assembly level are maintained while assembly structure and camera views are transferred accurately into KeyShot.
The KeyShot Integration for IronCAD will be available free of charge and is included in the IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite release 2014 and newer.
