Eovia introduces CADstyleTurn models into photo-realistic images and animations with Carrara Studio (June 22, 2004)
Eovia Corporation, developer and publisher of leading 3D software, today announced the immediate availability of CADstyle, a full-featured plug-in that enables users to directly import CAD models and assemblies into Carrara Studio 3.
CADstyle delivers a new dimension to Carrara Studio, forming a pro-efficient straightforward solution for designers and people handling technical models who need to produce top-quality renderings for impacting presentations, as well as for illustrators who need to create photo-realistic or technical rendering from existing CAD models for brochures, technical documentations, on-line and off-line presentations, and more.
?The combination of CADstyle and Carrara Studio 3 provides a powerful turnkey solution to all who need to create stunning still or animated presentations of CAD and technical models, including rich-media Web3D publishing, said Charles Brissart, Director of Software Engineering for Eovia. ?CADstyle handles all the major CAD file formats and directly integrates them into a Carrara Studio scene, ready to be textured, lighted, animated and rendered.
The CADstyle plug-in natively reads DXF, VRML, OIV, STL, IGES, STEP, VDAFS, SAT and openNURBS files, and converts NURBS surfaces and solids into ready-to-render accurate polyhedric models using a crack-free tessellation engine.
?The introduction of CADstyle for Carrara Studio, along with the availability of CADance for Amapi Pro, underlines the strategic direction of Eovia to enable its software offerings to become perfectly integrated components of the creative designers standard workflow, said Philippe Richard, CEO of Eovia. ?With the CADstyle plug-in, Carrara Studio becomes the unparalleled solution for product design presentation and technical illustration.
