cloud computing activity on the 3-D content front. At this week's SolidWorks World 2011 conference, Bunkspeed, a provider of 3-D rendering and animation software, introduced
its Bunkspeed Cloud Solution intended to let engineers and other users
visualize and interact with photorealistic 3-D images and scenes via the Web,
wherever they are in the world and from any device that can run a web browser.
At the heart of Bunkspeeds' Cloud Solution is Bunkspeed SHOT Pro, a 3-D rendering application that produces photorealistic images and 360-degree animation. The software integrates with SolidWorks 2011 and other leading CAD packages, via plug-in or importer, to allow users to add materials, change out lighting environments and apply various back plates to product photorealistic results.
