Mental images, a wholly-owned subsidiary of NVIDIA, has announced that its iray rendering technology is integrated into Dassault Systèmes CATIA V6, the 3D collaborative design solution. With iray rendering technology leveraging the parallel processing power of NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla graphics processing units (GPUs) certified for CATIA V6, product designers, engineers and marketing professionals can create photorealistic images of their designs within CATIA.
“As everyone needs to communicate their ideas clearly and most powerfully, high quality photorealistic imaging has become increasingly essential. With V6, a 3D product is experienced as it looks in real life. Product design and innovation professionals have a strong need for intuitive interactive photorealistic visualization to be an integral part of the design process,” says Jacques Leveillé-Nizerolle, CATIA CEO, Dassault Systèmes. “With mental images’ iray renderer, CATIA V6 gives casual users, visualization experts, and styling review participants the ability to quickly and easily have a visual lifelike experience of their product as well as to produce physically correct 3D images directly from their working environment, throughout the creation and collaboration phases of their design.”
iray rendering technology is available in the CATIA Live Rendering workbench for V6R2011x, which is now part of the CATIA Rendering and CATIA Industrial Design Products.
