by | Mar 6, 2013

Irvine, California, March 7th, 2013 – Luxion, a leading developer of advanced rendering, animation and lighting technology and maker of KeyShot®, the first real-time ray tracing and global illumination program, today announces LEAP Australia Pty Ltd as its newest software reseller for KeyShot. LEAP is the largest PTC® and ANSYS reseller in Australia and New Zealand with offices in Auckland, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide, and will now offer Luxion’s KeyShot 3D Rendering software to users of PTC Creo®, SolidWorks, Rhino, Inventor, SolidEdge, NX or CATIA.

KeyShot is an interactive 3D rendering and global illumination program developed by Luxion for both PC and Mac that breaks down the complexity of creating photographic images from 3D models. Combined with its ease of use, KeyShot gives anybody involved with 3D data the ability to create photographic images in a matter of minutes, independent of the size of the digital model.

Luxion welcomes PTC Partner LEAP Australia as KeyShot reseller.

“High-end rendering for CAD users is often seen as a time consuming activity that requires expert knowledge to create high quality results. Now with the tight integration between KeyShot and CAD systems like PTC Creo®, users can get photo realistic results fast and easy” says Matthias Pfeifer, PTC Business Manager at LEAP Australia.

KeyShot directly accepts models from PTC Creo® on both PC and Mac, as well as through a plugin with the ability to maintain a Live Link between PTC Creo® and KeyShot, as well as import mechanisms direct from PTC Creo® to be used in building KeyShot animations.

“The Luxion partnership with LEAP is a natural fit as we will be able to offer another industry leading tool to our customers to help them design better products. We are very pleased with the partnership between our two companies” says Greg Horner, Managing Director at LEAP Australia.

LEAP represents the largest CAD, CAID, CAM, DEM, FEA, CFD, PDM and PLM reseller in Australia and New Zealand. LEAP serves thousands of customers with PTC Creo® as well as other PTC® and ANSYS products in the ANZ region.

“LEAP Australia is an impressive company with an equally impressive customer base, says Dr. Henrik Wann Jensen, Co-Founder and Chief Scientist at Luxion. “We are very excited that LEAP has decided to add KeyShot to their already extensive product portfolio to deliver the best rendering solution to their customers. With LEAP’s commitment to excellent sales and customer service, we know we have a great partner that will help us further penetrate the Southern Pacific market.”
