Shade3D ver.20 Now Available
FORUM8, a global leader in photorealistic, immersive 3D VR engineering software has announced the release of Shade3D ver.20; its advanced 3D graphics design software widely used to enhance architectural models and product designs as well in the creation of CGI illustrations for film and video games developers.
Incorporating a range of new features Shade3D ver.20 offers a highly competitively priced and easy to use tool set for professionals and hobbyists that is totally compatible with the latest 3D printing formats, allowing users to produce physical representations of their designs corrected and fixed by its optimized 3D Printing Assistant.
New features and enhancements introduced in the latest version include Dark-mode support for Windows 10 and macOS Mojave, 3D annotation, Metal(macOS) and Direct3D 12(Windows10) compatibility, quality improvement of texture and animation display of the modeling operation together with improvements to the rendering and global illumination processes.
Available as a stand-alone design package, Shade3D’s high-precision model data is fully compatible with FORUM8’s award-winning VR-Design Studio (UC win/Road) software. Used by research organisations, urban planners, transportation authorities and vehicle manufacturers, VR Design Studio allows the creation of fully immersive, realistic models of the built environment. Loaded models can be used not only for landscape but also for walking, flight, and driving simulations including real-time changes in time and weather.
FORUM8 Western Regional Manager Dr. Brendan Hafferty commented “Shade3D, acquired by FORUM8 in 2018 with over 500,000 active world-wide users, offers an extra dimension to our suite of advanced 3D VR design simulation and engineering tools. This latest release incorporates new features requested by our users and further enhances the range of options and design applications that enable the creation of highly realistic models of the built environment, engineering components and new products.”
