Luxion and Autodesk announced a partnership expansion between the two companies that establishes KeyShot as an integrated rendering solution for users of Autodesk Fusion 360 software.
With KeyShot, Fusion 360 users have the ability to create photorealistic 3D renderings, animations and interactive visuals used in communicating concepts, delivering internal presentations, delivering digital prototypes and creating sales or marketing visuals. Using a custom developed plug-in, Fusion 360 users can transfer their models to KeyShot directly from inside the application, make updates in Fusion 360, and see changes immediately within KeyShot.
Luxion's LiveLinking technology allows any changes made in Fusion 360 to be transferred immediately to KeyShot. As soon KeyShot is started from Fusion 360, the two applications are linked. Users may assign materials, add lighting and set up animations inside KeyShot while continuing to refine the model in Fusion 360.
KeyShot functionality will be available immediately within the latest version of Autodesk Fusion 360 as a plug-in available through the KeyShot website. In addition, Autodesk Fusion 360 customers will be able to purchase KeyShot or upgrade to KeyShot Pro, as well as purchase Luxion's add-on applications, KeyShot Animation and KeyShotVR, through the KeyShot website.
