Real-time photorealistic renderings of 3D CAD models in seconds
KeyShot 2 is a new application built on Luxion’s production-proven real-time interactive ray tracing lighting and global illumination technology. KeyShot 2 makes it easy to create photographic images from 3D models with realistic lighting, giving anyone with 3D data the ability to create a photographic image in a matter of seconds, regardless of the size of the digital model. KeyShot 2 delivers amazing real-time “shots” without the need for special graphics cards.

Alibre Design Expert and Professional v. 12.1 also offer the new BIP export format specifically designed for KeyShot 2. In addition, Alibre Design Expert and Professional v. 12.1 also takes advantage of the new capabilities in KeyShot 2 by taking 3D data and exporting it directly into Luxion’s native format for cleaner, easier and faster 3D rendered models and amazing shots.
According to J. Paul Grayson, CEO of Alibre, “The combination of Alibre Design and KeyShot 2 enables our customers to create and render images that are indistinguishable from professional photographs of actual physical products. This means that they can show their customers how a product will look prior to incurring the expense of actually creating a physical prototype, thereby saving thousands of dollars and increasing sales by showing a compelling representation of the final product.”
“KeyShot 2 is the next generation of photorealistic real-time rendering,” said Max Freeman, VP of Marketing, Alibre Inc. “Alibre Design and KeyShot 2 is the complete end-to-end solution for our customers, combining extreme ease-of-use, a high level of capabilities, and native BIP export.”
