Luxion, in partnership with Mold-Tech, a Standex Engraving Group company that specializes in texturizing and engraving in the automotive, plastics and consumer product industries, announced an exclusive partnership that brings Mold-Tech textures to KeyShot.
First available within KeyShot 4, Mold-Tech textures deliver realism and accuracy for a variety of textured appearances. As with all the materials, colors and other textures inside KeyShot, Mold-Tech textures are applied as part of a new Mold-Tech material via the KeyShot Library with a simple drag-and-drop of the texture onto the object. All updates are seen in real time with options available in the Mold-Tech material properties to change color, roughness, scale and depth of the grain. Additionally, all patterns scale accurately with the size of the model.
"Mold-Tech is pleased to be collaborating with Luxion to provide the design community with advanced 3D rendering of select Mold-Tech patterns which are part of our extensive Mold-Tech library," said Bill Meike, Mold-Tech director of sales. "We look forward to enhancing the experience and capabilities of designers when considering creative texture designs as a cosmetic value or a functional property."
"Luxion is proud to have KeyShot as the only source for accurate representation of Mold-Tech textures inside a rendering application," said Henrik Wann Jensen, chief scientist at Luxion, "With hundreds of textures and all the options to refine the appearance, KeyShot brings a level of realism to product visuals that can't be matched."
