Tech Soft 3D Announces HOOPS Visualize v20

October 8, 2013

New Release of Leading Graphics SDK Will Build on Hardware Optimization, Speed Improvements and New Features to Help Software Developers Build More Advanced Applications

Bend, OR (PRWEB) October 08, 2013

Today, Tech Soft 3D continues to set the standard for large model interaction with the announcement of HOOPS Visualize v20. Featuring speed gains for cutting-planes, improved collision detection in models and smart highlighting, Visualize v20 optimizes the engineering industry’s most-trusted solution for adding high-end graphics to professional applications. Simply put, the fastest engineering graphics toolkit just got faster.

“HOOPS Visualize v20 continues to deliver what our customers value above everything else – high performance visualization, even as the size of models continue to grow,” said Tech Soft 3D’s Director of Product Management, Rob Mazeffa. “With HOOPS Visualize, software developers can immediately leverage the most robust visualization capabilities on the market.”

Software developers need to know that their programs will work optimally at any workstation. Updates in Visualize v20 ensure this by extending hardware support through a new intelligent recognition system that can automatically select the optimal driver for the software, no matter what machine the end user is on.

With speed improvements up to 3X faster for cutting, interaction becomes even smoother for end users. Other updates include:

  • Collision Detection Speed: Up to 10X speed gains for collision detection, dramatically improving the user experience when collisions are being calculated and visualized in CMM, CAM or Building walk-throughs.
  • Large Model Rendering: Extended and improved algorithms now more intelligently “cull” the scene, for faster rendering with minimal scene degradation.
  • DirectX11 Support: Extended DirectX support expands the wide variety of graphics drivers already supported in HOOPS Visualize, allowing developers to take full advantage of the latest graphics hardware.
  • Intelligent Driver Selection: Developers using HOOPS Visualize can now rely on its intelligent detection system, which identifies the user’s hardware and automatically chooses the driver that will deliver the best performance.

For the last 17 years, engineering software developers have relied on Tech Soft 3D’s insight and expertise to drive their graphics in a wide range of software programs. Through the advanced graphics tools continually offered in HOOPS Visualize, it has helped to develop a wide variety of solutions ranging from venerable CAD solutions such as PTC’s CADDS5, to more recent applications from companies like Autodesk, SolidWorks, and Trimble.

“Trimble has relied on HOOPS Visualize and Tech Soft 3D for nearly a decade,” said General Manager of Trimble Navigation Limited’s GC/CM Division, Mark Sawyer. “With v20, Tech Soft 3D has once again responded to our need to handle larger models on a range of hardware, allowing us to continue delivering high-performance visualization in a range of construction and scanning applications.”
