LightWorks Announces LightWorks Real-time Plus

(January 15, 2002)
LightWork Design today announced the launch of LightWorks Real-time Plus. LightWorks Real-time Plus helps software developers improve their users' interactive experience. Previously, CAD systems only provided interactive navigation within simple models. Now, LightWorks Real-time Plus gives software developers the opportunity to create applications that can render large and complex models in real time.

Software developers integrating LightWorks Real-time Plus within their applications, will be able to offer the following benefits to their users: * Interactive visualization and review of models by all types of CAD user; * Interactive and smooth real time navigation of large and complex 3D models; * No investment in expensive hardware required.

Interactive rendering of complex models Applications using LightWorks Real-time Plus can manipulate complex 3D models containing many millions of polygons. CAD users today are creating increasingly large and complex models and need software applications that can cope with these. LightWorks Real-time Plus is the solution for developers wanting to produce such applications. Because LightWorks Real-time Plus allows the creation of easy-to-use applications, all types of user can readily view these large and complex models and quickly navigate around them.

Smooth navigation Another useful feature for developers is that interaction within LightWorks Real-time Plus is always at a consistent speed and therefore the navigation is always smooth. This prevents the user from "getting lost" within the model, as is typically the case when using many CAD systems.

Works on any hardware LightWorks Real-time Plus works in applications on entry-level hardware but also adapts to higher-end hardware for increased performance. This means that no investment in expensive hardware is required.

LightWorks Real-time Plus works in conjunction with LightWorks Real-time to produce applications with the highest possible quality of interactive rendering. LightWorks Real-time Plus is powered by the NavisWorks engine.

About LightWorks LightWorks is the industry's fastest rendering engine. Applications that incorporate LightWorks include: ArchiTrend from Fukui, FormZ from auto-des-sys, Madric 2000 from CPU, VectorWorks from Nemetschek North America, Truespace from Caligari, CDRS from PTC, PowerShape from Delcam, SolidThinking from Gestel, SolidWorks from Dassault, ThinkReal from Think3, Unigraphics from EDS PLM Solutions, Vellum Solids from Ashlar and products from many other major CAD vendors.
