Luxion, a leading developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology and makers of KeyShot®, the ?rst real time ray tracing and global illumination program, today announced the release of its free KeyShot plugin for Creo™ 1.0. The plugin is available for immediate download from Luxion’s KeyShot website: www.keyshot.com/downloads/plugins.html.
KeyShot is an interactive 3D rendering and global illumination program developed by Luxion for both PC and Mac that breaks down the complexity of creating photographic images from 3D models. Combined with its ease of use KeyShot gives anybody involved with 3D data the ability to create photographic images in a matter of minutes, independent of the size of the digital model.
KeyShot 2, with native support for Creo 1.0, features the ability to import Creo data directly on PC and Mac. With this new plugin designers and engineers can now link Creo Parametric and KeyShot, and transfer data directly from their modeling session into KeyShot’s rendering environment with a single button click. Not only does this eliminate several steps in the process, but the data transfer itself is also signi?cantly faster. This allows users to create high quality images from their Creo data in an even shorter amount of time.

“Luxion is one of the ?rst partners to commit to the integration of their product, KeyShot, into Creo,” says Andy Barlow, PTC PartnerAdvantage Program Senior Director. “With this new plugin, anyone involved in the product development process including sales and marketing can bene?t from the ability to create high quality imagery from Creo data with just a few clicks.”
The plugin is integrated seamlessly into the Creo UI and ribbon interface which makesthe plugin appear as a native Creo application. Introduced at last year’s PTC Creo launch event, the plugin has been rewritten from the ground up using PTC’s Pro/TOOLKIT® enabling even greater ?exibility when transferring data from Creo into KeyShot.
Core features of the plugin include:
“The introduction of this all new plugin shows Luxion’s commitment to the PTC install base,” says Dr. Henrik Wann Jensen, Chief Scientist and co-founder of Luxion.
“Bringing the two applications even closer together is yet another step to further bridge the gap between design, engineering and marketing for Creo users.”
Luxion’s KeyShot plugin for Creo Parametric (formerly known as Pro/ENGINEER®) can be downloaded free of charge at www.keyshot.com/downloads/plugins.html.
