Eovia Launches Amapi Pro 7.5Meets needs for numeric design and adds a photo-realistic render module (December 02, 2004)
Eovia, developer and publisher of leading 3D animation, modeling and rendering software, today launched Amapi Pro 7.5, the first major update of Amapi Pro, the NURBS 3D Modeling Workshop for Mac OS X and Windows. Entirely elaborated in collaboration with its users, Amapi Pro 7.5 is an essential update which precisely addresses the multiple problems of numerical design. This new release upgrades and replaces Amapi 7 Pro, which first shipped in March 2004.
The principal innovations of Amapi Pro 7.5 include a more complete 2D drawing toolbox with a new Bézier curve drawing and edition tool, a full set of advanced NURBS snapping assistants allowing the designer to get instant and dynamic access to all singular points and directions related to existing curves: extremities, tangents, perpendiculars, intersections, and more. Amapi Pro 7.5 also offers a new Dynamic Geometry Navigator enabling full access to the object construction tree and allowing easy and instant control on all level of components of the model. The new version also brings a high-level module for texturing and photo-realistic rendering, based on Carrara 3, and a unique NURBS Box-modeling tool to combine the flexibility of Box Modeling techniques and the power of NURBS representation.
Moreover, Amapi Pro 7.5 now profits from NURBS variable-radius filleting and from a rich set of CAD imports/exports formats including STEP, SAT/ACIS and OpenNURBS formats. Also new: The three-times faster real-time display engine, a new printing module, managing especially NURBS silhouettes display, a real-time dynamic measurements display, and much more enhancements.
?The 7.5 release brings out the best in Amapi Pro, said Laurent Billy, Director of Product Marketing for Eovia Europe. ?We gathered input and feedback from our users and market, and incorporated essential new tools and extensions that answer the demands of professional designers and advanced 3D creators.
Amapi Pro is a high-end creative tool used for the conception, modeling and assembly of 3D objects and scenes in Product Design, Architecture and advanced 3D model creation with a user interface designed for the creative professional. It integrates all advanced technologies of NURBS modelling while still preserving the legendary creativity of the Amapi product line. Amapi Pro 7.5 is the only tool within its category to propose an interface entirely dedicated to the creative professional.
