Luxion and GrabCAD, an online community and collaboration platform for designers and engineers, announced a partnership that connects KeyShot and GrabCAD to allow the seamless transfer of data between the two platforms.
With KeyShot, GrabCAD users have the ability to quickly create photorealistic 3D renderings, animations and interactive visuals to compliment the 3D files they share in the Community or the private projects they collaborate on with GrabCAD Workbench. This is extended even further by the variety of 3D file formats that both KeyShot and GrabCAD support, with tight integration to import, view and render 3D data. This partnership establishes the additional ability for users to connect to their GrabCAD account from KeyShot to publish 3D renderings of their models.
Within KeyShot, a new option under Edit, Preferences, Plug-ins is now available. When a user activates this plug-in, they will be prompted to log into GrabCAD, allowing authorization to connect to the GrabCAD users' account. After a rendering is created, the user may select the image(s) they wish to upload from the KeyShot Library Renderings tab, right-click and select Publish to GrabCAD. The user has the option to publish the image(s) to the public Library or private Workbench. Once published, the user will be taken to the GrabCAD project in their web browser.
