KeyShot has always been focused on providing the most scientifically accurate material appearances possible. KeyShot 7 refines this with more materials and texture types to provide exactly the look you need.

Amazing Materials

The new Cloudy Plastic material contains light-scattering particles to replicate complex, scientifically accurate materials such as Polycarbonate or ABS. The Metal material introduces over 10 scientifically accurate metal presets while all materials and textures have been updated with unit-aware settings. Easily apply textures with the new interactive mapping tool and do more with Tri-Planar, Tile UV and Video Maps and new procedural brush, mesh and weave textures.
