Seamless transfer of data
As the first Workbench app integration dedicated to 3D rendering and visualization, the link between KeyShot and GrabCAD allows you to both open your models inside KeyShot from GrabCAD and publish your renderings and scenes from KeyShot back to GrabCAD, all with the click of a button.
With support for the largest number of file formats of any 3D rendering software, it couldn’t be easier to use KeyShot and GrabCAD to collaborate on your 3D data using photrealistic images rendered in KeyShot. There are three simple steps to get started:
How it works
Collaborating in style while creating high-quality visuals couldn’t be more efficient. With the flexibility collaborators have to transfer 3D data to KeyShot, you ensure all project members can create visuals without being connected, uploading and sharing renderings, animation and KeyShot scenes when able with all variations visbile to the group using GrabCAD’s intelligent versioning system. Here’s how it works.
Open with KeyShot
Within GrabCAD, you have a pulldown in the model viewing screen with the option to Open with KeyShot. When a model is open inside a project of the Workbench interface, you and any collaborators will see a Open With menu above the model in the upper right corner. With a single click, members of the project are able to select Open with KeyShot to launch and open the model directly inside KeyShot. With KeyShot installed, the model will open immediately inside the KeyShot realtime rendering environment. A video of the functionality can be viewed here.
Publish to GrabCAD
Within KeyShot, a new option under Edit, Preferences, Plugins is now available. When a user activates this plugin, they will be prompted to log into GrabCAD allowing authorization to connect to the GrabCAD users’ account. After a rendering is created, the user may select the image(s) they wish to upload from the KeyShot Library, right-click and select Publish to GrabCAD. The user has the option to publish the image(s) to the public Library or private Workbench. Once published, the user will be taken to the GrabCAD project in their web browser. This functionality allows direct publishing of your visuals to your GrabCAD Workbench. A video of the functionality can be viewed here.
KeyShot is widely recognized as the best rendering software, the easiest and most powerful when it comes selling a concept, creating internal presentations, exploring digital prototyping, and creating sales or marketing images – all from your 3D data. With drag and and drop ease of use, real world lighting and scientifically accurate materials, create product visuals faster than ever before.
GrabCAD is leading the Open Engineering movement, helping engineers get products to market faster by connecting people, content and technology. GrabCAD Workbench makes it easy for engineers to share files, work with partners and complete projects on time, while the GrabCAD Community accelerates the design process by tapping into the knowledge and resources of the largest source of CAD content and engineering minds in the world.
