Blender Users


Intuitive Interface

You won’t need to struggle for days to learn KeyShot basics. Our uniquely easy-to-learn interface is one of the biggest benefits, and designers tell us it makes work a joy instead of a chore. It frees you up to focus more on your idea, concept or design, instead of figuring out complicated software.

Sketchup 3D Rendering Speed


Everything inside KeyShot happens in real-time. It uses unique rendering technology that makes it possible to see all changes to materials, lighting, and cameras instantly. No more waiting for minutes and hours to see your results. As soon as you assign a material to a part, you will see what a material will look like under the given lighting conditions.
