With KeyShot 3.3 we provided a sample set of DuPont paint materials. Now, we’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with DuPont to launch a KeyShot material download site where you can search through and download four collections of paint offered by DuPont, with more being added in the future. Here are the details on the collections and how to use them inside KeyShot.

DuPont Paints for KeyShot

The collections currently available are Popular colors, Trending colors, SpectraMaster® colors and DuPontTM Hot HuesTM line. With materials in each of the four collections you can instantly apply and view dozens of accurate color coatings under real-world lighting conditions. We’ll show you just how far DuPont is taking this with some more exciting news tomorrow.
