It’s time to get your Mechanisms on and into KeyShot. That’s right Creo people, today we formally announce the ability to import Mechanisms created in Creo and Pro/ENGINEER directly into KeyShot. The new plugins are now available for Creo as well and Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3, 4 and 5. The Mechanisms come into KeyShot in their own animation group with options to continue developing your animation and churn out those amazing fully rendered animations. Here’s the bullet list of features for the plugins and where to download the latest version of the plugin.
