HANNOVER (Germany), November 29, 2011. – VSR (Virtual Shape Research GmbH) as a young, growing business is displaying continuity, presenting itself again at the leading fair for design and application development. EuroMold 2011 is being seized as another opportunity to present the company’s new products and software versions that will allow the enhanced product development workflow to be covered in the future. Numerous enhancements and improvements will enable increased productivity through improved work processes. At its newly designed booth, VSR will offer live presentations of how the latest software versions can be used to create quality designs.
The current version of the rendering solution “VSR Realtime Renderer”, in addition to innovative technologies such as multi-core processor support, now also offers adaptive ray tracing for highly realistic visualizations. This makes it easier for designers to create frequent high-quality model presentations in their everyday work and to further integrate this into their workflow, because high-quality renderings and virtual product presentations are indispensable for the evaluation of a successful design. The use of previously created renderings in subsequent work steps becomes a lot easier with the new “Layer Separation” feature, which will also save much time, as most of the tedious work associated with clipping is then no longer required.
When “VSR Shape Analysis” was presented last year, the focus had been placed on performance and comfortable handling. This module has now been enhanced to meet manufacturing requirements. Functions to verify demoldability allow the designer to keep an eye on manufacturability from the very first concept.
“VSR Shape Modeling“, first presented to the public during last year’s EuroMold, has been further enhanced with additional functionality tailored to designers’ needs. Besides numerous other enhancements, it is now possible to model the control points of trimmed geometry. The new surface matching and blend function works with curves and surfaces as input and generates results up to G3 condition. This will be of great benefit to users who create esthetically pleasing surfaces that have to meet class-A standards. The product is thus becoming a reference for efficiency and quality.
VSR’s highlight during this year’s EuroMold is the first trade-fair presentation of the new product line “VSR WebGL Export”. It is well-known that already a picture tells a thousand words, and a 3D model can thus be expected to tell a story. Seamless 3D communication can considerably enhance the possibilities in the development process. “VSR WebGL Export”, a Rhinoceros® 3D plug-in, provides users with a tool that is perfectly easy to use and allows data models to be viewed on any other hardware. All that is needed on the target device is a state-of-the-art Web browser.
“We are proud to have enhanced our VSR product suite in highly relevant areas,” says Michael Wieczorek, one of the executive directors of VSR. “The product launch of ‘VSR WebGL Export’ very nicely demonstrates our agility and technological competence to quickly translate customers’ wishes into available products.”
In the Design+Engineering Forum taking place in parallel with EuroMold 2011, VSR will be actively participating with two lectures: Peter Salzmann will be talking about the topic “Fast, precise, and affordable surface modeling for the design process” on Thursday, December 1, 2011, and Horst Vogt will be giving a talk about “Networked collaboration with WebGL” on Friday, December 2, 2011.
Virtual Shape Research is developing and marketing CAD software in the areas of Visualization, Free-Form Modeling and Shape Analysis with the goal to improve the daily job of designers in terms of quality and efficiency. VSR has established itself as a vendor for software add-on application supporting surfacing and their visualization. For specific markets other platforms are used.
