    Tips, news, and insight on KeyShot and 3D Rendering

    To celebrate the release of KeyShot 4.1 and our new integration with GrabCAD, we're holding a new rendering challenge to give you an opportunity to win a license of KeyShot! The KeyShot 'Get Your Toon On' Rendering Challenge is ON and it would only be fitting that we team up with GrabCAD to make it happen. Here are all the details.

    'Get Your Toon On' Rendering Challenge

    KeyShot 4.1 is releasing very soon, just in time for summer and with it we're introducing a new Toon material and integration with GrabCAD. We want to see what you can do with the new material and give you a chance to check out the new ability to upload your renderings directly to GrabCAD. Any of your models or any from GrabCAD is fair game. We provide the details, you provide the creativity and the stunning 3D visuals!

    The best rendering wins a seat of KeyShot Pro, the best animation wins a seat of KeyShot Pro + Animation and both receive the enduring admiration of the KeyShot and GrabCAD communities! Here are all the details.
